Welcome Welcome

The first day back school is always special but it was even more special this year having re-opened after 167 days! Staff and pupils alike smiled from ear to ear as they reunited for a new school year.

It was also a very special day for our 34 Junior Infants who joined our school for the first time. Each of the boys and girls enjoyed their very first day of school and took the whole experience in their stride.

Throughout the school pupils reunited with their friends and were delighted to be back in the classroom.

The school was well prepared for this unique opening with every member of staff going above and beyond to ensure our pupils could enjoy school in a safe but cheerful manner.

Re-Opening Our School

I hope you are all well and enjoying the summer holidays. Please find attached a letter outlining our plan for returning to school.

We are really looking forward to welcoming the boys and girls back to school and I hope this plan helps alleviate any concerns you may have. This plan may change, depending on advice from NPHET and the Department of Education but we will keep you updated of any changes.

Please take time to read this letter carefully. There is a lot in it but it is important that we all play our part in enabling the school to re-open in a safe and sustainable manner. We will explain all these details to the children when we return to school.
