COVID in School – If your child displays symptoms of COVID, keep them at home and do a Lateral Flow test.  If your child is tested for COVID, please forward a copy of the result of the PCR/Lateral Flow test to the school office.  If a positive result is returned, please contact the school office for further guidance.  If a child tests positive in any class, an email will be sent out to the parents/guardians of pupils in that class.  The guidance has changed; you DO NOT keep your child off school (unless your child has tested positive!), an updated information email will be sent out if there is a positive case in your child’s class.


First Communion – The First Communion will take place on Saturday 21st May at 10:00 a.m.  There have been no restrictions placed on people attending the ceremony, however, there may be guidance in place regarding face covering etc.  Once confirmation is received from Fr. Mc Dermott, all attending will be informed.

Tickets for School Show – All ticket orders are to be returned to the school office by tomorrow 6th May with the child/ren’s names and class written on the order slip.  When all requests have been received we will then be in a position to allocate additional tickets to those who have requested them.  There is no money required at this time, please do not send money to school.  We would like to remind parents that pupils from this school will not be permitted into the evening performances.


Costumes/Dances – There are some year groups that have already sent out a note requesting costumes for the school show.  The remaining year groups will send out a note in the coming days.  If you are experiencing difficulties sourcing the costume, please contact the class teacher.  There are some year groups that have put the dance moves onto Google Classroom, keep practising those moves!
