Board of Management Meeting April 2020

Covid-19 Lockdown and the school going online:
We hope that everybody is well and keeping themselves safe during this lockdown due to the covid-19 pandemic. Even though we are not on the school premises, the school work will continue online. In that way the school has not closed but moved to home. The teachers will be sending work home daily through Aladdin connect and keeping in contact with pupils through both Aladdin Connect and Webex sessions. They will still be meeting and planning together through Webex meetings and the Board of Management will also continue to meet monthly online. We would like to thank all the staff, pupls and parents for all their effort and hard work durng these trying and worrying times.

Admissions Policy:
According to the Education (admissson to school) Act 2018 schools must publish an admission to school policy and statement for the coming school year 2020/21. This means that the Board of Managemnet must revise the present policy to bring it in line with the new guidelines. Once revised it must then be sent to the school’s patron body for ratification. The Board of Management have now begun this process. When all is completed it will be published on the school’s website.

The New School:
Construction on site has now stopped due to the Covid-19 lockdown. Things are continuing in the background though on things like signage. This will delay the project somewhat.

Múinteoir Michelle:
We sadly say goodbye to múinteoir Michelle after nearly 20 years teaching in the school. We would like to thank her for all she did on behalf of the school and the pupils during her time with us. We wish Michelle well as she takes up her new position of principal in Scoil Chualainn.
