Fifth class have been working very hard in the build-up to Halloween. We’ve been working on group projects about myths and legends. One myths we looked at was the Greek myth of Medusa, the tale of a young woman who had her hair turned to snakes. If anyone looked directly into her eyes, they were turned to stone! She was eventually beheaded by the warrior Persius…ouch! We also had a visit from our local community Garda who gave us a talk on safety over Halloween. We learned that many fireworks can be dangerous and can cause serious injury if not handled correctly. Fifth class would like to wish everyone a very happy and safe halloween!
I hope you are all keeping well. We fully appreciate that the past few months have been incredibly challenging and we are looking forward to getting back to some sense of normality as the school sets to reopen on Thursday 27th of August. We are currently putting plans in place for the safe reopening of our school and we will be sharing all the relevant information with you over the coming weeks. We will be using this Aladdin platform to communicate this important information. There will need to be significant changes to the way we usually operate in terms of movement around the school building and in terms of the delivery of the curriculum but we plan to take all the necessary steps to ensure the safe and successful reintegration of every child in our school.
In other news, after almost 8 years as Principal of Scoil Ghráinne CNS the time has come for me to move on. I have really enjoyed my time as the Principal of Scoil Ghráinne and I am very proud of our collective achievements over the years. Scoil Ghráinne is a great school and I wish my successor the very best of luck in their new role. I have been appointed as the Director of Schools within Kildare and Wicklow ETB (KWETB) and I am really looking forward to this new and exciting challenge. I will remain in the school until mid-September and I will let you all know when my replacement has been appointed.
