Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope that you and your families are keeping safe and well during this difficult time.

As our school remains closed, it is important that our pupils experience continuity of learning as far as possible. I want to reassure you that we are here to support you as best we can. 

We are very aware that access to digital devices and internet cannot be taken for granted and it is our intention to blend on-line activities with assigned work from the children’s textbooks. We hope to have regular contact with you to both support the learning at home and to help with any difficulties that may arise.

Experience has taught us that student engagement during the weeks ahead will depend on your support and encouragement.

The school office will be open to take calls from 10am to 2pm daily or email at info@presentationprimarywaterford.ie

Below you will find a letter from Minister for Education Norma Foley which we have been asked to bring to your attention.

Keep safe and well

Dropping off and Collecting Pupils

As we continue with Level 5 of the Plan for Living with Covid-19 and in the interest of the health and safety of the whole school community, parents/guardians are asked to wear a face mask while on school grounds. Please also inform friends/family members who may be collecting/dropping off your children. Your support in this matter is crucial to our efforts to keep the school safe for all.

Up the Déise!

Our school was lucky to be chosen as one of the 30 schools to take part in “Fans in the Stands.” 100 cardboard cutouts were delivered and we got the chance to paint self portraits on them. These were brought to Croke Park ahead of the All Ireland final between Waterford and Limerick. We wore blue […]
