I hope this message finds you well during these unprecedented times. Further to the Government’s decision to close schools to support efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, I am writing to advise you of school continuity measures taken to date:
- We reissued/confirmed all students had their email login details
- Teachers issued revision guidelines to support students’ continued engagement with the curriculum during the closure.
- The school closed following a directive issued by An Taoiseach
- Provisional return date to school.
- If the DoES confirms we can open I am inviting students to bring a small hand towel, soap /hand sanitizer in a plastic zip-lock bag. The school was struggling to source new dispensers and hand sanitizer prior to our closure as the HSE had understandable priority.
The school will continue with actions to prepare for our return to the campus. The following guidance is to support students as they prepare for their summer/state examinations:
The State Examinations Commission (SEC) will circulate guidance on contingency arrangements if they are required.
- The school will communicate any such arrangements through normal channels such as text, twitter and school website.
- The SEC announced the cancellation of the oral and practical performance tests of the Leaving Certificate and Junior Cycle examinations, which had been scheduled to take place from next Monday 23rd March to Friday 3rd April, and to award full marks to candidates due to take these tests;
- That schools and candidates are allowed flexibility in relation to the completion of other project work and coursework across a number of subjects which are currently scheduled to be completed in the period 20th March to 24th April. Students will now be allowed to complete this work up to 15th May, which will allow candidates time to complete this work.
- That the SEC, in conjunction with the Department of Education and Skills, will continue to monitor the evolving situation very closely and will act in accordance with Government and public health advice
- Please check for further accurate updates on the SEC website
- Pre exams results- Ms. O’Dwyer will forward exam results to teachers as she receives them. Subject teacher will communicate these results to their students.
Teaching and Learning:
- Your current school timetable provides you with an excellent structure to organise your day. Teachers will be available online during normal timetabled hours each day. Please message and work with your teacher during this time. Any messages sent outside of this time will be picked up the following day. The school advises parents to encourage their daughter(s)/son(s) to submit assigned work. Please urge them to do so within agreed timeframes as this will help them with the transition back to school.
- Please be mindful that code of behaviour applies when working on the school online system.
- Students please note questions can be asked via direct message to the teacher or via the class page.
- If you are having any issues with your teaching and learning – please email your Director

This is an unprecedented situation, and the school community is conscious that in these difficult times, we will come together to find solutions. We always work in the best interest of our students. It is an unusual time for us all, and we need to work together to delay and limit the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. We encourage parents to emphasise the importance of social distancing to all in their care, so we as a nation can protect the most vulnerable in our communities.
I also want to acknowledge that many of our students might find the uncertainty of the forthcoming weeks quite unsettling. I want to take this opportunity to reassure parents and students alike that the SEC and DES have always made decisions which are student-centred and mindful of the immediate environment. We have no control over what decisions the state agencies make; we do, however, have control over what actions we can take. So please remain focused on your study schedules and your preparations for the state examinations.
Finally, on your behalf, I would like to thank our staff for their assistance and proactive actions to support your daughter(s) and son(s). The staff and your daughter(s)/son(s) are a credit to our school community.
