Newsletter June 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian,

This has been a school year that we will all remember. I would like to pay tribute to the whole school community for all their incredible work in the last few months in what have been very challenging and difficult circumstances – teachers, staff, parents, Board of Management and of course the pupils. We as yet don’t know what the situation will be exactly in September but we all sincerely hope that we will be back to some sort of normality by that stage. As soon as we know more, we will let you all know.

Book Returns:   A huge thank you to all the families who have returned school rental books. We will be doing an inventory of those books early this week and may be in touch with you with regard to some outstanding items.

School Reports/Booklists:   We posted out all the school reports on Friday. If you don’t get your one by the middle of this week, please contact the school to let us know. We also have attached your child’s booklist for the coming year. Please note the €25 charge for book rental. We would ask those who can to pay online before the end of June. Otherwise, you can pay in September.

Classes for Next Year:   The staff have reviewed the school policy on class splits and have decided to stay with doing it by age. This will be kept under close review. Below is the class make up for next year. Please note that the teacher assigned to each class is provisional and may be subject to change. Junior Infants: To be confirmed. Senior Infants/1st: Ms McNally. 2nd: Ms Campbell. 3rd: Ms. Swinburne. 4th/ 9 pupils of 5th: Ms. Quinn. Rest of 5th/6th: Mr Byrne.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish Ms Marron well as she is moving on. She was a valuable part of our staff and we wish her every success in the future.

Sacramental Classes:   6th Class Graduation takes place on Thursday the 2nd of July at 7:00 in Kingscourt Church. First Holy Communion takes place on Saturday the 22nd of August at 11:00 in Kingscourt Church. There is no date yet for Confirmation. As soon as we hear of one we will let you know.

We have not left any formal work for this week but I would encourage you to continue to do reading with your child over the summer. This is something we often state but this holiday we believe it is more important than ever to both listen and read to your child. We have left a fun activity for you to try out if you so wish.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and happy summer holiday and we hope that we will see you all on the 1st of September.
