We hope all of the families in the Holy Spirit community are keeping well during these tough times. We have been encouraged by the Department of Education and Skills to remind our community about the importance of social distancing in order to prevent the spread of Covid 19. All pupils and students, from pre-school to third level are urged to practice social distancing, and to minimise physical contact with each other, to help avoid the spread of Covid 19. This should include
minimising social contact,
avoiding meeting up and
keeping physical space between them.
Parents and guardians are urged to support their children to maintain this approach, ensuring children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults.
We understand that this may be difficult for children to understand. Please find below some videos and social stories which may support you in communicating the importance of social distancing to your children.
