On Monday 17th February 2020, we had a lovely Well-being Morning. Our parents joined us for some light refreshments and a yoga class with Lisa Kingston. It was a very enjoyable morning and thanks to everyone who helped and supported.
All schools will be closed until 30th March. This also means all activities, games etc are postponed or cancelled. As these events are rescheduled we will be in contact.
Books and work packs are being sent home this evening. Some classes will have work set out, others will email the work over the weekend. Please check emails regularly, we understand that it may be difficult to organise child care at such short notice, but we hope the children can carry out this work semi-independently.
The Taoiseach has advised all citizens to minimise social contact, avoid meet ups and keep physical space between you and others to help avoid the spread of COVID-19.
As these are unprecedented times, please bear with us as we try our best to manage this situation.
We are currently taking part in Seachtain na Gaeilge. To celebrate Seachtain na Gaeilge, we will do a talent show/seisiún/soé on Friday from 12pm-2pm in the hall. Ger Wolfe will be accompanying us. The children may wear their own green/St. Patrick’s Day clothing on Friday.
I would like to remind you that the school will be closed on Monday 16th & Tuesday 17th of March.
Hurling for 5th & 6th class has been postponed this Wednesday due to the pitch being water logged. We will await a rescheduled date.
The 1st & 2nd class took part in the “Scriobh Leabhar” project where each child wrote a short book. These books will be on show in the Parkway Hotel for schoolchildren to view on Monday 30th March from 12.30-2pm. The 1st & 2nd class children have been invited to this showcase. We will hire a bus for the day. Thanks.
Huge congratulations to the 5th & 6th class boys & girls soccer teams who have reached the county semi-finals stage.

Just a reminder that children cannot be dropped to school until 8.50am. The children are not insured to be on the school property before this time and on a more practical level, the teachers use this time to prepare for the day and we would really appreciate if you could respect this.
Parents, please find information and support that you may need to ensure your child makes the most of their time online and stays safe when interacting with others online. Also, it shows you how to set up parental control over your children's devices.
