Suggested work for School Closures (optional)

School work

With the official announcement of all schools in Leinster remaining closed for the remainder of the week, Piercestown N.S. has compiled some suggested work for Thurs 1st of March and Fri 2nd of March for those who wish to avail of it. Teaching and learning is our priority at Piercestown N.S. so we wish to provide this option for those concerned about the loss of teaching time. Once again, we would like to take this opportunity to remind parents that this work is optional and not compulsory.

Most importantly, stay safe over the next few days. We look forward to re-opening our doors to all on Monday 5th March.
