Return to School:   We are delighted to be welcoming all our pupils back to school after the Christmas break. Over the next few weeks and months we may have a number of obstacles to overcome but we are all relieved that we can teach our children in person and that they can meet up with each other and carry on with the progress we have made in the first term.

The school will be continuing to follow our mitigation measures including ventilation, mask wearing from 3rd class up, hand hygiene etc. The HSE points out that the key prevention measure is not sending children to school with symptoms. If there is a case in a class, the parents of the pupils in that pod will be notified if the child was in the school setting whilst infectious. All children can still come to school if they are feeling well and parents can avail of the antigen tests provided for by the department. If there is a second case in a different pod in the classroom, all parents will be informed. In the meantime, school life will be going on as normal.

Attendance has been impacted across all schools as is to be expected. It is essential that if your child is unwell and showing symptoms or isolating, they do not come to school. However, if they are well and not isolating, the HSE states that there is no reason for them not to be at school.  We have amended the “Return to School” form so that parents can write down the reason for the child’s absence.

Sport:   We will be doing GAA coaching and hopefully swimming at some stage this term and will inform parents later on of exact dates.

Sacramental Classes: Our 2nd class will have their First Holy Communion on Saturday May 14th at 11:00 am and our 6th class will have their Confirmation on Sunday March 27th. (Time to be confirmed).  The next preparation Mass for 2nd class is on Saturday February 12th at 7:30 in Muff Church while the next one for Confirmation is on Saturday February 5th at 7:30 in Muff Church.

Enrolment:   Our School Enrolment for September 2022 will start on Monday next, January 10th and will run for 3 weeks.   Enrolment forms can be picked up from the office or downloaded on our website,

Student Council: Our Student Council has been very active under the guidance of Ms. Swinburne. They have been coming up with some excellent ideas in relation to activities for lunchtime that we are currently getting equipment together for.

Green Flag:   Our new committee has met with Ms. McNally. Our next flag is for Bio-diversity and we have begun the process of educating the pupils on what’s involved.
