Here are some pieces of work that have been posted! Well done children.

Hope you have had a well deserved break.

 

We would continue to encourage you to join the online services from St. Malachy's Church (just click the link) during the 'lockdown' period.

A big thank you to everyone for your support through these very unusual and challenging times.


Routine remains the key. It is crucial to set and stick to the timetable.
When the children have completed their work, upload it in the format Mrs Magee has set out in the See Saw App. This makes it much easier for teachers to assess the work.


If children are reluctant to do the work please let the teacher know. Mr Flynn is happy to ring and speak to children if required.


The work children do on See Saw, Lexia, Bugclub and Mathletics will be monitored and texts will be sent to parents if children are not completing their tasks to ensure we keep you informed.


We will also put some additional work, fun stuff and links on this page for parents and children to use.


Thank you all very much indeed. Any important updates will be send to you by text.

Take care and may God bless us and keep all of our local and larger community safe and well. 

A really big thank you to all of those people who selflessly are continuing to provide us with the services we need; especially from our school community. You are all in our prayers.


Mr. Dermot Flynn

Principal
