It’s hard to believe we have the month of September behind us. All our children are settling in very well. We have welcomed 4 new children into CROI and 78 new children to Junior Infants. There are other new families throughout the school also. We wish them all well in Scoil Ghrainne and hope they will be happy here and reach their full potential.
Welcome back to Mr Byrne who has returned from career break after 5 years and new staff include Ms Wells, Mr Lally, Mr Farrell and Ms Kilcoyne. Congratulations to Ms Kearns who has joined our SNA staff.
We are still talking sanitizer, ventilation, social distancing and mask wearing but we are used to these routines now and it is easier. Please continue to be vigilant and stay home if you are unwell.
The staff and BOM have been reviewing our Code of Behaviour over the past few months and it is now being discussed with our students. Have a look at the document on our website and feel free to give us feedback. You will also see our Child Safeguarding policy and we welcome your opinions on that also.
Last week Minister for children, disability, youth, integration and equality, Roderick O Gorman paid us a visit. He was very impressed by our young children who were great advocates for a greener environment .We are renewing our Yellow Flag this year so we are encouraging all in our school community to celebrate our diversity and accept and respect all members of our school community. Remember the words of John Hume;
“Difference is of the essence of humanity. Difference is an accident of birth and it should therefore never be the source of hatred or conflict. The answer to difference is to respect it. Therein lies a most fundamental principle of peace: respect for diversity.”
Enjoy the mid-term.
Stay safe ,
