Important News. Covid-19, Closures and Class Activities

Posted on 27th March 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Just a short note with respect to the ongoing school closure.

Class Activities

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.

School Meals

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 kevinssallynoggin@gmail.com and alternative arrangements can be put in place. My thanks for your understanding.

Supporting You
We hope there may be some silver lining in these unprecedented times; that our young pupils may have the opportunity to explore areas of interest that may not have appeared before, such as sketching in the outdoors, helping elderly neighbours, making movies, exploring the shorelines, playing with Lego, playing in the dirt, or baking and cooking. If there is some way in which we might be able to help you further, please do not hesitate to contact us at kevinssallynoggin@gmail.com and we will do our best to assist, support and encourage you and the young children and pupils in your care.
Please check our Twitter page and our HSCL Facebook page for updates too. We hope you are taking care and staying safe.
Barry
