Dear Parent/ Guardian,

The first term is drawing to a close. We’ve become somewhat adjusted to the ‘new normal’ at school and the pupils seem to have settled into routine quite quickly. The school wishes to acknowledge your continued support of all the new measures that have been introduced and we thank you for this.

Mrs Boyle, Vice – Principal and teacher of the Senior Infants Class, is retiring from teaching at Halloween. Her last day with us will be on Friday of this week. Mrs Boyle has been a valued member of our staff for the past twenty-one years and we wish her all the best in retirement. Representatives of the Board of Management, the Parent’s Association and school staff will make a ‘socially distanced’ presentation to Mrs Boyle on Friday afternoon.

The pupils are free to dress in Halloween costume on Friday of this week, if they so wish. Otherwise, pupils are to dress in school uniform.

The staff and pupils are looking forward to our Halloween break. The school will close on Friday 23rd October (normal school hours) and will re-open on Monday, 2nd November 2020. Trick or Treat is being replaced – for one year only – by Track and Trace!

Stay Safe,

Kind regards,

John Devenney.
