While we remain apart we stay together!

From May 18th teachers will be allowed to access schools in order to organise distant learning for their classes and groups. We hope to organise more paper based work  to reduce or eliminate the need for online work.  The paper based packs will be posted to children as only staff will have access to the school. Parents & guardians will be notified when work is being posted. 

INTERNET SAFETY TIPS: Tusla Louth Meath in collaboration with Louth Children and Young Peoples Services Committee have developed an online safety resource that parents can use to help them talk with and keep their children and young people safe online during COVID 19.  Please click on the link below for more information on the updated version:

TESTIMONIES: You may have seen some ‘testimonies’ from children in the parish on Dunleer Parish Facebook page. Fr Murtagh would love to receive some from the boys and girls from Scoil Bhríde.These can be sent to dunleerns@gmail.com or to your teacher.  Details to be included are a photo and the following details: name, age, school, teacher, how do I feel about Covid-19? what I miss most, my Covid hero, etc. I will also post the testimonies on our website on a page called “How we Feel about Covid-19” under HOME/INFORMATION.

The staff of Scoil Bhríde would like to wish all our pupils and their families good health as we adjust to a new “normal” and to remind everyone that we will be together again picking up from where we left off so please do not be worried about your child falling behind or not doing enough! Children are asked to simply do their best with the work that is sent home and to reassure parents & guardians that we can be contacted by email if anyone has any concerns. Don’t worry if you have limited internet access or you don’t have a printer – you can incorporate lots of activities into your child’s schedule that don’t need these as two lists of useful resources (online based and non-online based) have been added to our website under HOME/INFORMATION. These should hopefully keep boredom at bay and add plenty of variety to everyone’s day! 

To help us to keep positive and to stay in touch we are posting photos of the pupils in our school showing what they are getting up to as they remain at home – school work and other activities. ALL PHOTOS WILL BE NOW BE POSTED ON A NEW PAGE CALLED  “KEEPING BUSY & POSITIVE DURING COVID 19” AND CAN BE FOUND UNDER HOME/INFORMATION. Keep them coming!

REMEMBER TO STAY AT HOME, STAY SAFE, KEEP YOUR DISTANCE AND WASH YOUR HANDS – WE ALL HAVE AN IMPORTANT PART TO PLAY IN GETTING RID OF COVID-19
