PPE Visors/Face-shields being made in Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré
Coláiste Phobal is delighted to facilitate the making of visors/face-shields that can be used by front line workers in these uncertain times. The school came on board with St. Ailbe’s School in Tipperary town to help frontline workers. Dympna Nolan and Sandra Farrell have set up fundraising efforts to help ensure we can provide as much PPE as possible. Mr Haugh the Technology teacher in the school has worked tirelessly in making the visors/face-shields to help the front line workers. To date more than 1500 have been made and have been distributed to numerous Hospitals, Nursing Homes, services and individuals all over the Midlands. People have been very generous donating to the fundraising page which has allowed for the sourcing of the much needed materials to make them. If you know of any front line workers who could use the visors/faceshields please get in touch via the school Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Coláiste-Phobal-Ros-Cré) the school website (https://www.cpr.ie/) or by emailing: ColaistePhobal@tipperaryetb.ie. We are delighted to be part of this Tipperary schools initiative and playing our part in these difficult times.
Notice from Principal Michael O’Connor
The Government has announced that the Junior Cycle exams will be replaced by classroom based tests and the Leaving Certificate exams postponed until July/August – with remaining practicals and project work deadlines extended to late July. Over the coming days and weeks the logistics of how this will be managed will come to light – I’ll keep you all informed as soon as I get any information! This is a very difficult time for staff and especially for our exam students – this is an unprecedented situation – we will get through it in the best and most considerate way possible. Stay safe and Happy Easter. Beir beannacht.
Mr. O Connor.
