June newsletter

Time to put away the coats and take out the sun cream. It has taken its time but the summer is here. The school grounds are looking great. Thanks to our caretaker Danny and our grass man Colm for all their hard work.

School summer holidays: The school will close on Friday the 25th of June at 12pm. We are back to school on Monday the 31st of August.

Enrolment: We are still accepting enrolments for next year. Please contact the school and relevant forms will be sent out to you.

Graduation: Sixth class last day will be Tuesday the 22nd of June. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to bring in parents for the graduation ceremony. We hope to record the ceremony and send it to you after. We apologise for this but it is out of our hands.

Confirmation ceremony: This year confirmation will take place in Burt on Tuesday the 17th of August at 5pm and 7pm. Please find Fr. Bradley’s letter underneath.

Hike for Caitlin: We look forward to next Wednesday for our Hike up Scalp Mountain. All proceeds of the sponsored walk will be going to the Strain family. All the children will be going up the mountain. Please have your cards in by this Friday or next Tuesday at the latest. Thanks and give what you can.

Active week: This year’s active week will be starting next Tuesday the 8th of June. It will run for the week and we promise it will be another week to remember in the school.

On Tuesday, we have “coaches” day where we will have coaches from outside the school coming in and also the teachers will be taking different classes throughout the day.

On Wednesday, we have our “Hike for Caitlin,” where the whole school will be going up Scalp Mountain.

On Thursday, we will have Sports day. Unfortunately, due to government guideline we are not allowed to invite any parents on the day.

On Friday we are planning our trip to the beach.

All activities will be strictly obeying covid rules and regulations. When using buses, the children will be kept together in their class and will not mix with any other children from outside their class. We will be kept away from the public.

The children can wear their school tracksuit for the week and make sure they have sun cream on them every day.

School tours: The children from junior infants to Second class will be going to Lurgybrack farm and the senior side of the school will be going to Inis Adventures. Again these places will be closed off from the public for these days and the children will not be mixing with any other class from the school.

We feel in the school that the sports week and the school tours are vitally important to the children. They provide memories for a lifetime and a much needed return to normality feel. If anyone has any questions, please ring the office.


Stay safe,
