Dear parents and guardians,
We have moved to remote learning since the 11th Jan 2021 following guidelines from the Department of Education. We are looking forward to engaging with you all through Seesaw this month.
You can continue to access Seesaw with your child's username and password. Activities will be assigned through Seesaw each day. Please let us know if you are experiencing any connection issues or have difficultly logging on and we will do our best to help.
We arranged for books to be collected on Friday 8th Jan between 12 and 2pm. If you were unable to collect your books at that time please email the school and we will arrange an alternative date and time for you.
Stay safe and please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any help!
