Letter to Parents – May 25 2020

Dear Parent / Guardian,

At this time of year I usually write to you to let you know of all the school activities during the last term and the student celebrations planned for the last week. Covid has meant we have all had a very different 3 months or so.

In spite of this I’m happy to report that the students, in the main, engaged very well with our teachers via the online platforms we have had in use since March 12th.

During the last ten days they have been completing the various assignments and assessments set by their teachers for their summer report.
Once these have been completed for all their subjects, they are finished studying for that subject for this year.

Their teachers are currently working on these assessments and summer reports will issue in early June.

We will contact you in August in relation to the re opening of our school. To date we have no details or guidelines as to how this will happen.

Our 6th yr students through our Head Girl and Head Boy wanted to send this message to their fellow students.

Message to students:
In these strange times that we find ourselves in we would just like to remind everyone that although our time in school has come to an end, we are still here to support and help-out students in any way we can. We understand how stressful it can be for everyone when we still face some uncertainty within our everyday lives, but do remember “No matter how long the day, the evening will come”, with that, an end will come to our current situation, and eventually normality will return to our lives. As this school year comes to an end, we would like to wish all 6th year students the very best of luck in their results, and we hope you enjoy this summer before the next chapter of your lives begins! For those of you who are finishing up school for another year, we hope that you enjoy your summer and get a well needed rest. We wish everyone the best of luck in the future and would like to say thank you for a brilliant year as head boy and girl.
Best wishes,
Killian Sampson and Melissa Rossiter.

For now, I and on behalf of all the staff would like to thank you for your continued support of our school and look forward to getting back to a new normal in September.

Stay safe.

Mr. O’Connor.
