Please click here to read the Statement from the Department of Education and Skills regarding today’s announcement regarding school closures.

We have been asked by the Department of Education and Skills to forward the following information to parents and guardians. We encourage all children to bring in a wash bag containing soap, a small cloth and a packet of tissues. There is soap in every bathroom and we are reminding the children to wash their hands frequently throughout the day. We understand hand sanitiser is difficult to acquire at the moment so please don’t worry if your child doesn’t have this. For the time being, we also discourage sharing stationery and ask that you ensure your children have their own pencils, colours and other items they need for school. For more information, click the link below.
