Update - Friday 1st May
Greetings to everyone – I hope you are keeping safe and well.
I do realise I probably sound like a broken record at this stage but thank you so much for all that you are doing throughout this time. Your engagement with us on our distance learning journey is vital to continue to provide support to you and your child(ren) at this time. The children are doing absolutely wonderful work. We congratulate the pupils for their efforts to complete their work at home during this closure. We have enjoyed hearing about all the new skills being undertaken – learning to cycle, enjoying story books, baking, cooking, and gardening. We look forward to more news from you all in the coming weeks.
Thank you to everyone who responded to the recent distance learning survey. The results and feedback have been shared with all the teachers. We were very happy to read the hugely positive reaction to the efforts undertaken by staff to date. We found the feedback extremely valuable to inform how best to continue to support our pupils going forward, while being cognisant of the needs and demands on families.
Congratulations and well done to Amy Mangan (2nd Class) who was featured on yesterday’s RTÉ Home School Extra programme. Amy created a lava lamp that Múinteoir Clíona had demonstrated earlier in the week. Well done Amy for giving it a go and thank you for letting us know that you featured on the show.
This week’s issue of Glounaguillagh N.S. @ Home is available to view on the school website. Thank you to the children and parents who submitted items for inclusion. It’s great to be able to stay in contact, even in this small way. We love seeing your pictures and getting a glimpse of life at home during this time. If you would like to get involved, please send us your poems, stories, recipes, craft ideas and photographs to the school email address - firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't forget to get involved in the photo competition - What's Within My 2km?
The May Bank Holiday will not see posts from teachers on the various platforms. We recommend you take the opportunity to unwind, if at all possible. Spend time on non-academic activities and enjoy loads of precious off line time.
As we await a road map for re-opening our schools safety, please continue to keep in contact with your child's teacher, when you can and as best you can. We will continue to keep you updated. Thank you for your ongoing co-operation.
Wishing you all a nice weekend and stay safe.
