Wk beginning 8th June

Sending warm greetings to all of you.

Work outlines are available on our website, as usual. https://salesianprimary.ie/our-school/online-homework

We will continue to provide these for you until the end of term. We ask that you continue to engage with your learning as much as possible too. The end is nigh, but it doesn't mean that we should lessen our efforts.

It is difficult to comprehend that we have arrived at June already! Time has had a strange quality during this closure - sometimes it seems like last week that school was in "full-swing" and we were all together, then other times our "new normal" of being at Home makes being at Salesian Primary School a foggy memory.

During this time, it is incredible what we have managed to do:

Teachers have diversified their skills and have been innovative in how they can best support the learning of their pupils and the wellbeing of their pupils, from a distance.

Parents have fully-embraced their role of being co-educators of their children.

Families are spending quality time together like never before

Young children have recognised the importance of a society where EVERYONE plays a role in supporting others. It has been said widely during the time of this pandemic "we are all heroes playing our part in protecting our most vulnerable members of society". Ireland has indeed "pulled together by staying apart". 

It is the perfect illustration of how all of us are important and we all have a role to play.

​The Irish saying of "Ní neart go cur le chéile" means ​there is no strength without unity​ and the Irish people have certainly shown that we are a strong nation. 

Everyone at Salesian Primary School send good wishes to all of our families. We hope that you continue to stay safe and well. Make good choices about how the lessening of restrictions may allow you to see friends and family - follow the guidelines and we can then ensure that all of our efforts so far will not go to waste. 

Le gach dea ghuí,
