Happy Monday everyone – May 11th

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine that Saturday brought! It is 2 months tomorrow since we shut our doors so suddenly. Little did we know that we would not re-open them for the remainder of the school year.

I want to give a very special shout out to one group in particular this week, that of Mrs. Corrigan and her 2nd class boys and girls. This week in school would have been one of great excitement, practice, rehearsal, video shoots and preparation. But above all, a week of building special memories. 2nd class you have been brilliant in your continued preparation during our school closure when we had no certainty with regard to school re-opening or remaining closed. You continue to follow Mrs. Corrigan’s work and participated in Fr. O’Reilly’s Holy Thursday ‘Do this in Memory’ mass via the webcam. Your commitment and hard work is to be commended. We are thinking of you all this week and especially as we get closer to Saturday. But remember, by staying at home you are saving lives. Our special day has unfortunately been postponed but upon our return to school we will finish the excellent work that you had started and celebrate your special day, like never before. Boys and girls, it will be worth waiting for. Myself and Mrs. Corrigan continue to liaise with Fr. O’Reilly re: a new date and as soon as a date can be confirmed we will be in touch with your families. For this week, try to not be too disappointed.

Early finishers suggestions for this week are as follows:
