We held a whole school video call today to say a special goodbye to our 6th Class. It was great to see so many of our children as our summer holidays begin.
Here’s our video of 6th Class memories and good luck wishes.
Take a look at this video. It tells the story of our year.
Wishing everyone a Happy Summer Holidays!
Highlights from Cairdeas 1: 2019- 2020
Please see the 2020/21 school calendar here.
It is our plan that school will re-open for the new school year on Tuesday 1st of September but as I’m sure you’re aware there is some uncertainty in relation to all of this at the moment. Hopefully things will become clearer in the weeks ahead.
Classes for the new school year will be as follows:
Junior Infants: Ms. Galvin
Senior Infants & 1st Class: To be recruited in the summer.
2nd & 3rd Classes: Mrs. Shaughnessy (please note Mrs. Shaughnessy will be on maternity leave in September. A teacher will be recruited in the summer)
4th & 5th Classes: Mrs. Hyland
6th Class: Mr. Hyland
Cairdeas 1: Ms. Leonard
Cairdeas 2: Mrs. Kearns
Special Education Teachers: Ms. McGrath, Mrs. Bell & Ms. F Walsh
As it’s not possible for our new Junior Infants and their parents to visit the school at the moment, Ms Galvin has made a video to show them around our school.
More useful information can be found in this presentation.
This booklet might also be useful to look at. In it there are some of the faces you’ll see every day in school.
We look forward to meeting you all later in the summer.
I hope you are all keeping well.
It is hard to believe that June has arrived, the traditional month of school tours, sport’s days, our Open Day and lots of other fun end-of- year activities.
Since schools were closed in March the children have been interacting wonderfully well with all the teachers and some brilliant work has been completed and sent back. You can see examples of some of this work in the respective class pages of the website. Well done to you all for the enthusiasm shown in what has been challenging times.
It has also been great to see the children and speak to them over the last few weeks through our Google Meet classes.
Now, with four weeks of school left, teachers will continue to post learning activities and, as before, just do what you can and don’t feel under pressure to complete all the work each day.
In the coming weeks we will be sending out end-of-year reports, booklists and a calendar for the new school year. Hopefully within the next fortnight we will have a better idea of what school will be like in September as the Dept. of Education are due to issue guidance on the re-opening of schools.
We will also arrange a day towards the end of June for rental books to be returned and for any children’s belongings to be collected.
All teachers can be contacted by email and please feel free to get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any query whatsoever.
As always, thanks for your continued support.
