Mass Times for Palm Sunday and Easter

Radio Mass Times for Ossory and Urlingford Parish for this weekend and Easter Time

Covid 19 Time Capsule - A nice idea!

Here's a lovely idea Ms Horan sourced. It's a full PDF of how to complete a Time Capsule for a family! Could be a project for the family over Easter!

Easter Holidays

Today, the 3rd of April would normally be a hive of excited activity in the school, as it should be the day of the Easter Holidays when there would be lots of art and eggs being finished!

This year has been very different in the run up to Easter, but today is still the day of the Easter Holidays. Everyone has done well to cope with the last three weeks and it is time to give the children a break from the school books. Continue on with other activities, the exercise classes that are online, the daily chores (good habit to form), using the websites that are suggested, lots of reading!

We will hopefully know in the next week or so how well this effort everyone is making is working and how much longer social distancing and isolation will continue. When we know this we will put further plans in place and be in contact.

Until then, keep safe everyone and have a Happy Easter!

Week 3!

Dear Parents,


Just a quick note as we start week 3 of schools being closed.

All the class teachers have uploaded new programmes of work for their classes for the week ahead. They are available in our Work from Home page.

As the teachers point out, this is suggested work, get through as much as you think is possible and please do not let you or your children get stressed over it!

The Daily Quiz will continue.

We have added more suggested websites. The latest ones are from Britain who are only entering this phase and they might provide something different.

Don't forget that School at Home is on RTÉ every morning from 11am-12 noon.

Easter Holidays start on Friday next April 3rd! There will be no extra work assigned for the following two weeks - still keep up the exercise (and the chores!!)

Keep safe everyone.
