Dear Parents and Guardians/A Thuismitheoirí agus a Chaomhnóirí,

Thank you to the whole school community for a very calm, supportive and understanding approach on dealing with our first confirmed case of Corona Virus.  We are happy to report that the person is recovering well.  It is a relief to know that the measures we are all taking are having a very positive impact in preventing any spread of the virus.  Let’s continue to be careful with hands, face and space.  It is reassuring to know that as we learn to live with the virus it is possible to continue with school life.   We are living our value of the month, Unity.

Unity is

  • Togetherness
  • Collective strength and harmony
  • Personal commitment


Supporting the Wellbeing of our school community is more important than ever in our current circumstances. We are delighted that children and families have been so positive about our return to school. We hope pupils are enjoying our ‘Health & Wellbeing Homework’  and spending lots of time outside in our lovely weather!

Some small tips from the PSI to support wellbeing at home:

  • Eat well, and include colourful fruit and vegetables in meals
  • Get at least eight hours of sleep every night, with younger children needing more than eight hours
  • Keep a positive attitude, but acknowledge and accept worries and sad feelings
  • Stay connected with friends, family and colleagues

Just a reminder also that there are lots of wellbeing resources on our school website under: ‘Resources – Wellbeing’  

The good weather is a great help at the moment and its great to see the children are enjoying lots of outdoor activities.

Take care and be mindful of other pedestrians

Please try to arrive at your start of school time so as to prevent a large gathering of people on the pathway outside the school and be mindful of other pedestrians and cyclists sharing the path.  If you are waiting outside at 8:40am please stand on the grass area so that the pathway is clear for other users of the path.

A huge thank you to all of the parents who have given up their time very willingly to ensure safety on entry to and exit from school over the last few weeks.
