Dear Parents and Guardians/A Thuismitheoirí agus a Chaomhnóirí,
“Tough times never last, tough people do” Robert Schuller,
I feel very grateful for the super team we have and for the dedication and hard work of all the teachers and SNAs in maintaining positive connections and opportunities for children throughout this period of remote learning. The level of continued engagement and standard of work by the children is a credit to the children themselves but also to staff and of course to you the parents. I also appreciate the informal positive feedback from parents and the sense of unity. It is important to celebrate the small successes.
With the return to school on Monday of the 3rd to 6th class children we encourage parents to continue to drop their child(ren) at the designated time, as much as you possibly can. This will prevent people congregating outside the school gate and allow a constant stream of children coming through the gate. Remember “if its not too far leave the car”. As always we encourage children to walk, cycle, scoot, skate, park ‘n stride. You may have noticed additional double yellow lines coming all the way up to the gate so please park further away from the school if travelling by car. This is in the safety for all and out of respect for local residenceSee updated response plan for more details.
Seachtain na Gaeilge
We are all really enjoying some seachtain na gaeilge activities this week, dánta, ceoil, damhsa, alainn and araile. And we are looking forward to St. Patrick’s day on Wednesday. Don’t miss out on the artwork and movies on our WoW webpage.
We wish all the hard-working mothers a lovely day on Sunday and hope you get that holiday feel as you sign off from your remote learning duties. Maybe you’ll have time to fit in the DCC offer (see across).
