Fantastic News

7th May 2020

We are delighted to inform you that our application for the renewal of your Green Flag has been successful. The team at Green-Schools were very impressed with our application, congratulations! So thanks to all the hard-working members of your Green-Schools committees: Charlotte, Micklas, Amelia, Kate, Matthew, Maja, Aoibhe, Síne, Charlie and Tomek and everyone in the school.

You all deserve a huge amount of credit for your efforts. The work that you are doing is really having a positive impact, and when the work of all schools is combined it’s truly amazing!

Unfortunately, due the current situation, they are not able to hold our Green-Schools Awards Ceremonies this year which is such a shame as we absolutely love to celebrate with everyone around the country. As soon as the schools re-open we will ensure we receive our Green Flag and certificate and hope that you can celebrate with a flag raising in the school when possible

Update on Return to School

5th May 2020

Unfortunately it was announced last week, that we will be unable to return to school for the rest of this academic year, due to COVID-19. This is quite upsetting, as we will be missing out on our School Tour, Sport’s Day and all of the other fun activities associated with the final term in school. We are grateful for all of the fun and trips that we had this year, prior to the school closing. Next year, we will just have to make these events bigger and better in order to make up for them being missed this year!!

Even though we are not in our physical school building, we are still a school community, working hard through this uncertain time. Teaching and learning, which is at the heart of each and every school, is still happening and we couldn’t be prouder of how hard our pupils and their families are working from home.

The children are using a mixture of Google Classroom and SeeSaw to communicate with their teachers. They are also using EPIC and Splashlearn to read and play Maths games online. Each classroom are video chatting on a weekly basis with Google Meet, so that the children and teacher can see each other and catch up. It is a great resource which enables the children and teacher feel like a community again.

We look forward to finishing out this academic year in an unusual manor and returning to our school building for the next year- 2020- 2021.
