Parents Note 11th Jan 2021

Dear Parents,

For the coming weeks our teachers will communicate with the children in a variety of different ways using but mainly Seesaw and email.

Our Sixth Classes, Support teachers and Special Class Teachers will also use other supports including Zoom, WhatsApp, text, phone, post and dropping support packs to your homes.

By now your child’s teacher will have been in touch to outline their plans and arrange the collection of any materials or books from school that may be helpful at home. A list of the planned work for each class is posted on this website under the ‘Homework’ section above.

We plan to use more recorded video and voice over rather than ‘live’ lessons for most classes,  as this will give you an opportunity to view them with your child at the most suitable time for you and be able to view them multiple times if necessary. We will trial live Zoom sessions with Sixth Classes and continue with this support in  some of our Special Classes also.

Regardless of the method of support the aim is to help you and your children through this difficult time. We understand that every home is different, with varying levels of internet access and different times suitable for engagement, so we understand that any of us can only do our best.

All of us will hear fables about how other schools and families are coping wonderfully and we can judge ourselves harshly as a result. See these stories for what they are – a work of fiction. All of us find the going difficult and we are here to help each other. So do what you can.

Stay in touch and let us know if we can help in any other way – email your teacher or contact me  at 0877559237 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Parents Note 4th Jan 2021

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year and every blessing to you and your family for the term ahead.

As you may be already aware, due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic, our Christmas holidays have been extended to Monday, January 11th 2021. We do not plan to engage in any on-line learning this week.

In the past few weeks we have entered a new phase of uncertainty in fighting this horrible, sinister virus. As the numbers of positive cases grow alarmingly across all age groups, all areas and all hospitals our thoughts and prayers are with these families and the staff who care for them at this worrying time. 

The importance of caring for each other continues to be our primary concern. Following the government health guidelines in reducing all our contacts has never been more important. Equally we are blessed to live in Killarney, so as the current dry weather continues, get out for a walk, run, cycle or swim each day.

Yet, despite our best efforts, many of us will test positive or be deemed a close contact and have to self-isolate or restrict our movements, these are the times when we need extra care and support. As a school community we are here to support each other. We are also here to help with the practicalities of collecting shopping, prescriptions etc. contact Rory on 0877559237 and we will arrange the timing for delivery and any other help you may require. We are here to help.

The government's decision to re-open our schools or not next Monday will become clearer later this week.

We will organise for each eventuality when that decision is made. In the meantime use these days to rest and stay safe. As a decision emerges I will be back in touch, otherwise the next scheduled update is next Thursday, January 7th 2021.

If you have any further questions or if we can help in any way please contact 0877559237 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Best wishes,

Rory D’Arcy.
