A Thuismitheoir/Caomhnóir Dhíl,

Sonraí anseo thíos mar gheall ar an bhféilire don bhliain seo chugainn agus eolas faoin aistriúcháin atá le déanamh ag do mhac/iníon go dtí an mheánscoil.

I hope I find you in good health. The purpose of this letter is to provide details on the calendar for next year 20/21 and share various other bits of information with you all before we break for the summer.

What an unusual and challenging few months it has been for us all. For students who were in 6th classes across the country, this crisis has impacted them in a particular way by cutting short their last few months in primary school.

The transition from primary to secondary school is always an important stage in every child’s life and the staff at Gaelcholáiste na Mara acknowledge the very abnormal circumstances surrounding the transition this year’s first year group will be making. We will do all in our power to support your son/daughter when they start with us at the end of August.

In advance of starting with us, we will provide some guidelines to parents on how best to support your child in advance of what will be a busy but exciting time. This information will be shared with you all in mid-August, a few weeks before we start. The most important thing at this stage is to reassure your son/daughter that everything will be ok and not to be anxious or concerned about starting in secondary school. ‘Ar scáth a chéile a mhairimid’ i gconaí i nGaelcholáiste na Mara agus oibreoimid le chéile chun aistriúcháin do mhac/iníon a bhainistiú.

Féilire (Calendar)

We are currently planning for a normal return to school in late August. Having said that all schools will be following the guidelines we will receive from the Department of Health and Education on hand hygiene and various other measures being discussed. Planning is ongoing to ensure that the appropriate procedures will be in place when we return to school.

Our féilire(calendar) for the year is now live on the website and app and can be viewed on the website at this link: Féilire 20/21.

This live calendar is the best calendar to work from as I update it with day to day and week to week events as we go through the schoolyear. You can also sync events relevant to you ie: Cruinniú tuistí/scoláirí (PT meetings) with your phone calendar through our app- iclassCMS. Simply download the iclassCMS app from the app store and follow the instructions for anyone who has not yet downloaded it.

For anyone who would like to print out the calendar as it is now for the schoolyear 20/21 I am attaching a PDF copy at this link below:

Féilire 2021

You will see that the first meeting we will have for the next school year will be on August 28th. That morning we will meet with parents and students from 9.30-10.00. Parents can then leave and we will be taking the students for ionduchtú (induction) until 12.00. Obviously this plan will go ahead as long as the public health advice at that time allows. If needs be we will make a new plan and communicate this with you in advance of that date. The following Monday, August 31st, classes will begin for all students.

Ipad agus leabhair:

I have received regular updates from Wriggle on ipad and book orders and all seems to be in order which means that you will receive your ipad all set up with books and instructions in the coming weeks and months.

Éide scoile:

If anyone is still looking to purchase the school uniform, please see attached a link here below to information on what is required-

Éide scoile - Liosta

These items can be purchased locally in Arklow from Eric Craig or Cool4school.

At this stage I want to wish you all a very happy summer at the end of what has been a very challenging year for us all. We really look forward to seeing all our new students again in late August as they transition into the first year of their studies at Gaelcholáiste na Mara. Tabhair aire daoibh féin agus bain gach taitneamh as an saoire.

Le gach deá-ghuí i gconaí,

Tony Ó Murchú

Príomhoide
