Halloween 2020


The children learned about the origins of Halloween. They discussed what they knew about Halloween already and what they wanted to know about. They learned about the Irish origins and how Halloween is celebrated all over the world.

Advice Page 2nd Class

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As the reopening of our school approaches I would like to draw your attention to the details below which are specific to Second Class. Although the school environment is different to that which we last saw in March I will endeavour to embrace these changes while still providing a fun and enriching learning environment for the children. I would also like to reassure parents that we as a staff have been working tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of children and staff will be paramount. Also for any parent/guardian who might be anxious about their child falling behind we will be revising topics if necessary, I have taught 1st class and am very familiar with the 1st class curriculum. I hope this document will provide answers to any questions you may have.

$     Entering/Leaving the building

All single pupil families will enter the school from 9.20am – 9.30am.

All other children will enter the school from 9.30am-9.40am. 

2nd Class children will enter and exit the school through the last door on the right next to the staff parking. See picture below.

2nd Class children will finish school at 3pm – the adult collecting your child is required to stay in their cars unless your child requires assistance.

We would strongly discourage gatherings of parents or children outside in the morning or after school.

$     Break Times

2nd Class –> Break Time - 11:15 – 11:30, Lunch Time – 12:30 – 13:00

2nd Class will be sharing their yard breaks with Senior Infants, 4th Class and 6th Class. Children will not be allowed to leave their designated areas on yard and mix with the other classes.

       Storage Tub

We would ask that parents would purchase a large box (55litre approx. See below) which will hold: all books, copies, coats, lunch boxes, drink, school bag and any other items your child has been asked to bring to school. This will be stored securely under their table.



Lunch items must be easily accessible and easy to open by the children. Children must use lunch box as a plate and not put food on the table.

Children must bring enough water to do them for the day to avoid bottle tops touching taps.


Children will need their own stationery; there will be no sharing of equipment. Please refer to booklists for what is required for your child’s class.

         Hand Sanitiser

Children are not required to bring hand sanitiser; this will be provided by the school. Parents are requested to contact the school if their child has an underlying skin allergy/ skin condition and cannot use the school hand sanitiser.

$      Communication with teachers

Parents may contact me through email if they have a query as face to face meetings cannot be facilitated due to COVID 19. Emails can be sent between 9.30am - 4.00pm. Teacher email addresses will be put up on the school website at the start of the term. I will endeavour to answer your query the same day however this may not always be possible. Any emails received after 4.00pm, will not be answered until the following day.

I hope this gives a clearer picture of how we will be conducting the day, I know it is a lot of information but we will soon get used to the new way of doing things. I am really looking forward to working with your children this year. Wishing you all a lovely week.

Mrs Nicola Tuite
