Dear Parents and Guardians/A Thuismitheoirí agus a Chaomhnóirí,

Welcome back pupils, staff and parents.  We are absolutely thrilled that for the first time in the journey of GETNS we have the same team on board as last year, and what a team it is!  Welcome back Sorcha (Deputy Principal) on return from maternity leave.  Thanks again to Áine (Assistant Principal) who played a blinder acting up for Sorcha.  We’re very happy to have Aoife back from maternity leave also.

It is absolutely wonderful to see all of the children again and to hear of their multiple adventures and happy stories from the summer break, and to see them so settled into their new classes already.  We are especially delighted to meet the new Junior Infants and two new children in the ALC.

Value of the month is Respect

Staggered Entry/Exit Times

On reflection, and on observation of what is happening currently, from Monday we will reduce the gap between the staggered times.  It remains our objective to keep everyone safe and as distanced as possible and we encourage children to make their way to their teacher independently where possible.  Thank you for the feedback received.

Class  Start Time Finish Time
ALC Green 8.40 1.20/ 2.20
ALC Blue 8.40 2.20
Junior Infants 9.00 12/1.20
Senior Infants 8.40 1.20
1st 8.40 2.15
2nd 8.45 2.20
3rd 8.50 2.20
4th 8.50 2.22

With cautious optimism we look forward to a less disruptive year and urge everyone to observe the usual measures in particular during the month of September.
