Dear Parents,

As we are continuing to follow the school calendar, we will not be posting on the website for the two weeks of the Easter holidays. If you would like to continue with the structure of doing school work daily, we highly recommend RTE Home School Hub. We’ve been watching this week and we all agree that this programme is very educational. It is curriculum based and supported by the Department of Education. We think that the children from 3rd and 4th class would enjoy it. It is on every day at 11am and might give you a break for an hour!

We will be checking our emails from time to time over the fortnight so if you need any help, support or advice during this time feel free to contact us via the email addresses we have already posted. We would like to wish you and your children a very Happy Easter and we will be posting on the website again on Monday, 20th of April.

Kind Regards,

C. Flanagan, A. Duggan and N. Tutundjian

Dear Parents,

I will be putting together suggestions of work for your children to complete at home, I am mindful of the challenges people may be facing in the coming weeks and do not want to add stress or pressure for you or your children. I would hope that children would engage in the process independently for the most part using a spare copy.

Please appreciate that many of the activities that children engage in at home are highly beneficial for their learning. Playing with Lego and other construction toys, playing outside, practicing their sports, pretend play, board games, reading, painting, drawing, playdoh, helping with household chores, practicing musical instruments are all educational and worthwhile activities. 

Understand that these are just suggestions- it is important that you choose an approach that works for your family. You can contact me on a.duggan@upperglanmirens.ie during the school closure if you have any questions or if you would like to share pictures of the work your child has done. 

I look forward to returning to seeing you all back at school happy and healthy

Kind regards,

Aoife Duggan
