Sept 20- Return of music

October 5, 2020

Great to have the sound of music down the hallways of school again – led and inspired by the amazing Ms Majella Killeen – New ways of teaching and participating which are COVID safe – large hall / social distance / bubble system / PPE – and the boys are loving it ! Tried our first ever Facebook live recording with the boys from 4th as this may be the safe way forwards re concerts etc – enjoy 😊 🎵 🎶❤️

2019 / 2020- School attendance

October 5, 2020

21 school days back and back safely 😀- promoting school attendance is always important for our school as every day counts 👍 this year with COVID-19 the priority is safety at the moment so thanks to the boys and parents for keeping kids at home ur in doubt – symptoms 👏 – so getting 100% attendance this year is not a target – We will acknowledge “ sensible school attendance “ in our own way during the year – Finishing up from last year 2019/2020 to acknowledge 100% and only 1 day missed to march – presented in their class bubbles – well done boys 👍😀👏
