Welcome…

Dear Parents/Guardians

I hope you are all keeping safe and well. As you know schools will remain closed until April 19th but with the help of our new Aladdin Connect App and our school website www.presentationprimarywaterford.ie  we will be doing our best to bring you, ideas, suggestions and learning plans to help keep learning alive in your homes. These learning plans have been carefully considered by your child’s teacher. You may decide to use all the ideas, some of them or none of them. That’s OK!

If you have any questions about the new Aladdin Connect App, please email them to me on info@presentationprimarywaterford.ie

These are very difficult and challenging times for us all and I would urge you to follow our governments and the HSE advice to keep us all healthy and safe. Please practise social and physical distancing, good hand washing, cough and sneezing etiquette.

Important public health messages in 17 different languages are available for those parents who require it on Covid-19

Be safe. Be well.

Anne Marie O’Mara,

Principal
