School Closure Activities
To all our wonderful Presentation families,
We hope that you are safe and well. Should your child become very ill in the coming weeks please let us know by email:firstname.lastname@example.org
The teachers have put together some more ideas to help you with learning at home. We know that many families face huge challenges at this time. The work we have provided is to support you and is not intended as a “TO DO” list. Feel free to use the ideas that work for you as a family.
We will take a break for the Easter “holidays” but you can continue working from the suggested websites if you wish. You can also use ideas from other class links. In addition, RTE are to screen classes from Monday 30th March.
For the moment we have been advised not to return to school for books,copies etc. However, if the closure continues after 19th April we will try to facilitate the collection of these items. The Department of Education has asked us to remind the school community to adhere to public health guidelines during the closure.
We are thinking of you all and wishing you health and happiness at this quiet Easter time.
Irene and staff
Please click on the links below for classwork for the week March 30th -April 3rd. We hope you all enjoyed the activities set out for Week 1. Enjoy the Easter break after this week’s work.
To all our wonderful families
We hope that you are doing well at this difficult time. We realise that this is a very stressful time for families and have no wish to add to your burden.
However, we would very much like to support your child at home. Teachers have compiled a list of learning activities for each class level.which we will update every Monday.There is no pressure to complete the list. It is there to support families.
Many parents are worried about their children “falling behind”, but rest assured that this is a world -wide problem.
Children will learn a huge amount from spending time with you: chatting, playing, walking etc. We will make up for lost academic time when life returns to normal. We will also liaise with the secondary schools to ensure a smooth transition when that time comes.
This is a time for kindness and patience and for minding our physical and mental health.
Irene and all the staff

To all our wonderful Presentation families,
We hope you are keeping safe at this difficult time. We know that our children miss the structure of school life and the company of their friends.
It is difficult to provide younger children with work which is meaningful and educational. However we would like to support families at home by suggesting a number of websites which provide enjoyable,educational activities for children.
We also suggest a number of other activities.
This post will be updated regularly while we are out of school.
We also recommend reading, cooking and baking, construction toys , drawing and colouring , jigsaws , board games, painting, junk art, playing outdoors, daily walk/run, cycling etc. Please ensure that all members of your family adhere to social distancing guidelines as issued by the HSE.

World Book Day-March 5th
Lots of boys and girls dressed up as their favourite characters on March 5th. Ms Simpson and her class made a beautiful collage.
Challenge to Change Room 13
Third Class girls in Room 13 are currently taking part in Challenge to Change . Their project is entitled ” Is There a Climate For Change?” They have done lots of work on this project. They created informative posters in groups. They want to raise awareness of global warming throughout the school and wider community. There is a challenge to change noticeboard and a committee to steer the project.
The girls have made a list of small practical things we can all do to save our beautiful planet. These changes can make a big impact globally, and can help preserve our planet for future generations.
