Dear Parents/Guardians,

We have almost come to the end of the school year! Thank you so much for making such an effort to continue educating your son at home during this difficult time.  We hope that the time at home together has had some positive experiences for you all.

This is our final fortnight of school work and it is much reduced, as it would be if we were in school!  As we have said before, there is no pressure to complete work, just do what you can.

Please email any one of us at our school email addresses if you have any questions about the work. Also, if you would like to email any completed work to us we would be delighted to read it.

Finally, happy holidays to you all and we look forward to seeing all the boys back in Scoil Lorcáin in September.

Kind Regards,

Mrs. Moore, Mrs Walker and Ms. Power
