Dear Parents(s) and Guardians(s),
Firstly, thank you for all the support and good-will we received on announcement of school closures.  As you are aware, currently schools remained closed until the 29th March 2020 (UPDATE: now extended to 19 April 2020) in order to support efforts at containing the spread of Covid-19.  Our teachers have provided some suggested work for our children while at home during this time.  We are sharing this work here.  The wellbeing of our children and their families is of the utmost importance and you as a parent are in the best position to judge the work your child can undertake without causing unnecessary negative feelings.  

The statement on school closures from the Department of Education and Skills reminds us that all pupils from pre-school to third level are urged to practice social distancing and to minimise physical contact with each other.  This includes avoiding meeting up and keeping physical space between them along with regular hand-washing and good respiratory hygiene . The statement also urges parents and guardians to support their children in maintaining this approach.

As news becomes available we will do our utmost to ensure it is added to this page.
