Hello everyone, 

It’s such a pity we didn’t re-open on January 6th but it’s really important that we do all we can to reduce the risk of  getting/spreading Covid-19. Myself, the teachers and other staff members all miss you and hope that you and your families and friends are all safe and well.  We are looking forward to re-opening when we are absolutely sure it is safe to do so. 

Thank you to you all for dropping off and collecting work on Fridays in a safe way by social distancing and wearing masks. Thank you to all our pupils for doing their very best to work from home. Remember that your teachers are available via Seesaw if you would like to contact them. 

Here are photos of some of our pupils who are doing super work at home. Please send in your photos/stories to dunleerns@gmail.com and I will post them here.
