Looking ahead…..

Dear Parents, Guardians & Girls,
I hope you and your families are all keeping well and safe. These are very strange times we are living in and we are doing our best to adjust.

In the Distance Learning section of this website, work for all classes has been added for May 5th – 8th. You will see that the teachers have added lots of new activities and work to keep the girls going. As always, this is just a support for you and is not to add stress to your lives. Do what works for you in your household.
The teachers are delighted with all the work that has been sent and the photos. If you have any queries or worries, don’t be afraid to email the teachers – all the email addresses are listed.  Each week, new work will be posted for each class.

Make sure to have a look at the SEN section – lots of new activities and resources have been added also.

It was difficult to listen last Friday night as the Taoiseach announced that schools would be closed until September. We miss all our lovely girls so much and wish we could be back with them. We have to continue to fight this virus, however and do everything we can to make our world safe again. I know it is very hard for many parents and girls, just know that we are here for you and will help in any way we can. We have no further updates on Communion and Confirmation but will let you know as soon as we hear anything.

We will stay in touch with you at all times and look forward to when our fabulous school community are back together.

Stay home, stay safe and here’s to better times.
