Presentation Primary School, management and staff, are looking forward to welcoming all our pupils back to school. As we are still living with Covid-19, we again have our routines and procedures in place for a safe and sustainable re-opening of our school.

The Covid-19 Response plan has been reviewed and updated. It is attached with this letter and is also available to view on our website. I urge you to read it carefully and to discuss the routines with your child so that they will know what to expect.

Here are a few points to note at this time:

1. Doors will open at 8.50am and pupils will go directly to their classroom/ building. Children will not line up in the yard. Location of classes are clearly outlined in the Covid-19 Response plan attached.

2. Parents will not be allowed to enter the school building but teachers will be on hand to direct or bring pupils to their classroom.

3. The school office is open for queries and payment of school fees.

4. Please see the image below to see a list of symptoms to check for before sending your child to school. If your child displays any of these symptoms, do not send them to school and contact your GP. Click here to see ‘Symptoms to look out for’.

Re-opening our school in a safe manner for everyone requires all members of the community to play their part- pupils, staff, parents and guardians. Further communications will issue in relation to health and safety around Covid-19.

Kind regards

Anne Marie O’Mara

Things that have been happening in class recently…

Soccer Star!

We’re all extremely proud and inspired by our very own Katie from Mrs McAra’s Class. Katie was captain of the under 12’s Portlaw soccer team who won their under 12’s tournament last Sunday. Congratulations Katie!!

Celebrating the Sacraments

Congratulations to pupils who received The Sacrament of Confirmation recently. May the Holy Spirit light your way. Congratulations also to the pupils who received their First Holy Communion. Thank you to all who helped make these days so special for everyone.

Goodbye Miss Tobin

All pupils and staff wish Miss Tobin well on the occasion of her retirement. We were lucky to have Miss Tobin here in the Presentation Primary School for nineteen wonderful music filled years. Thank you Miss Tobin for all your hard work…time….energy…kindness….the list goes on!
