1st Class: 22nd June 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are sad to say that it has come to our final week of online learning. While it has not been the same as being in the classroom with your children each day, it has been a very special time and we are grateful to all of you who contributed and engaged.

Receiving pictures and videos of your children’s wonderful work made us all very proud to be their teachers. They brightened each of our days, during this challenging time. We thank you, for guiding them through this.

Like everyone, we are hoping that normality will return soon and we will get back to our lovely school in September. It is clear that we all miss learning and more importantly, we miss each other. We wish each of your children all the best in 2nd class. The class teachers for 2nd class are as follows:

As with other weeks, we remain available for contact by email at firstclasswork@scoil-bhride.com. We will be correcting work and giving feedback until June 30th. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

Enjoy your summer, you all deserve it. Keep safe and take care.

See you soon,

Ms. Tóibín, Mrs. E. Thompson, Ms. Callanan, Ms. E. O’Sullivan, Ms. Hanafin, Mrs. Mahon and Ms. Lynam-Uys.
