Welcome to our New Junior Infants for 2020/2021!

29th June 2020

Dear parent(s) and guardian(s)
Today we sent a notice via Aladdin Connect with information regarding your child's class teacher's name and room number and a link to a "Hello Video" from the class teacher to their new boys and girls.  We also included a link to a 'Padlet' (this is like a noticeboard) with various resources / information that might be useful in preparing your child to start ‘big school’.   It was not produced by us so we accept no responsibility for the content.  Also - it’s not homework for you!  Dip in and out of it if it is helpful to you.   

Our Welcome Booklet for 2020/2021 was also attached to the notice.  Some procedures are expected to change a little in order to comply with "Return to school" guidelines due to CoVid 19.  These might include break- times, arrival and collection procedures amongst others.  When the guidelines are received, the Board of Management will plan accordingly for the safe reopening of the school buildings - we will keep you updated as we can.

The best advice I can give you is to remain positive when discussing school within your child’s hearing range.   It is completely natural in ‘normal times’, never mind these times, for parents to have mixed feelings about their child(ren) starting big school.  However, if your child feels your ‘mixed feelings’ then it is likely they will think that school is something to be worried about too.

We would encourage you to register for Aladdin Connect if you have not already done so - it is a great way for us to share information with you.  If you need another registration code sent to you please just email asking for a code - include your child's first name and initial of surname in the email.

Thank you for reading this, I look forward to being in touch with you again!
