Covid–19: 4th May Update

Dear Parents and Guardians,

You will all be aware of the government’s decision to wait until September to re-open schools. While it is disappointing that we will not get back to normality sooner, it is also a relief that the health and safety of everyone is at the forefront of government planning.

Our 6th class boys are especially on my mind. I am sorry that you will miss the last fun-filled term in Primary School, a chance to create life-long memories. We will start planning for the Service of Light, Confirmation, Graduation, a chance to say our goodbyes and in some way make up for what you have missed out on.

  • We are sending home school books this week, to help with learning at home. Weekly schoolwork plans will continue to be uploaded to the website each week.
  • We are hoping to add a new page to the website, over the coming week. WATCH THIS SPACE. It will help the boys stay connected with each other. We hope to have competitions, challenges, jokes, recipes, announcements, pupils’ work, news and views etc…
  • It is never too late to join Google Classroom. If you are having trouble joining up or would like more information, please leave a voice message on the school telephone (051 376752) and a member of staff will be in touch to talk you through the process or email your son’s teacher. (See list of teacher email addresses below).

Stay safe and best wishes
