Important News. Covid-19, Closures and Class ActivitiesPosted on 27th March 2020
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Just a short note with respect to the ongoing school closure.
From Monday, 30th March, school work and activities, specific to each class, will be located in Classes 2019/2020. If you click on this link and then select the appropriate class from the drop down menu, activities and tasks, assigned by the class teacher, can be found here. Unfortunately, the school remains closed to April 20th at the time of writing.
However, it is crucially important to remember that these activities are only suggestions and not prescribed work, it is simply there to offer structured learning opportunities, if that can be of help to you. Your child and our pupils (our scholars, sages, savant and rascals) will not fall behind. This is all revision. If kids could learn new concepts without specific teaching we wouldn’t need teachers and absolutely wouldn’t need principals!
We know this is a very difficult time for you. You may be working from home or may be facing financial difficulty. There may be uncertainty over state exams and we know many of you have very young children too. Inevitably, dealing with illness may become an issue. So please know, these activities are only intended to support rather than burden you.
From Tuesday 31st March, it was intended that Glanmore Foods would provide food parcels to each family. These parcels were to contain such items as bread, jam, butter and fruit, providing food for the week and collected from the school hall. Unfortunately, in light of the Government’s announcement yesterday evening (Friday, 27th March), which advocated more restrictive measurements on movement in the community, this will no longer be possible. However, if this is a matter of urgency, please contact me, in full confidence, at firstname.lastname@example.org and alternative arrangements can be put in place. My thanks for your understanding.
