As the weeks are moving on I wish to thank you for your engagement with school work. Keep it going as best you can and keep in mind that every little bit you can do helps in the long run. As always teachers are available to help and would love to hear from you.
As per the recent Government announcement, teachers can access school buildings from next Monday, 18 May, to distribute books etc. to parents. This however needs to be done in a manner so as to keep everybody, teachers and parents, as safe as possible. Our staff are meeting via video call today to discuss how this will work in our school. When the plan is finalised, we will send you the details.
Sadly, last Saturday should have been the First Communion day for some of our pupils. While the ceremony had to be cancelled, it will be rescheduled in the future and as soon as we hear anything we will let you know.
Last weeks competition was to draw your hero of Covid 19. There were lots of brilliant entries and there is a video of the entries on our school Twitter and Youtube.
This week I would like to ask children to think about their favourite school subject. Have a chat with your parents about why you like that subject and send me a sample of your work to email@example.com
For example, if your favourite subject is maths, send me some maths, if its art send me a picture or other artwork, if its history, maybe a history project, if its P.E. maybe a picture of you doing some P.E. It doesn’t matter what you send me, all will be included in the draw.
Congratulations to this weeks winner who will receive their €20 book token by email today.
Remember book shops are delivering during this time to keep up the reading at home if you prefer a book to reading online.
https://stories.audible.com/discovery have free audio books for children.
Stay at home, keep your distance and wash your hands.
