Schools have been instructed by the Department of Education to close for a half-day to facilitate training for the New Primary Language Curriculum. In order to minimise disruption, we will be taking the half-day on the Friday before the mid-term break – 22nd October.
As we enter the final week of the 2020-21 school year, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for continuing to help the wider school community through your vigilance and adherence to all advice, in order to minimise the spread of Covid-19. As a school, we are most grateful to you for keeping us informed about absences and up to date about testing and test results.
I would also like to thank all our staff, Board of Management and Parent’s Association for their dedication to the children in Kilmurry N.S. This has been a very challenging year and I want to thank them for their hard work and the commitment they showed in finding new ways of educating our children.
Although it is not possible to have all our usual end-of-year activities such as matches and gatherings for celebrations, nonetheless, we hope the children have enjoyed their Sports Day and all the other fun activities that have been organised over the last few weeks.
