Dear Parents and Guardians,
We hope that you and your families are well after the week’s break and managed to enjoy some fresh air in place of some lessons at home. It’s safe to say our eyes are glad of the break from screens. We are recharged and ready for what we hope will be just a short time of online activities with news of a possible return to school soon.
We can certainly feel Spring in the air these days with longer days and some lovely sunshine. We look forward to observing signs of Spring with the children over the next few weeks.
We hope that the girls will continue to engage with their lessons with the same enthusiasm as before the break. The most important thing for us all however, is that the girls stay happy and healthy in mind and body during this time. We look forward to returning to class soon to our smiling, content little ladies and everything else will follow on from there.
Thank you for all your support and please let us know if we can be of any help to you.
The First Class Team,
Ms Catterson, Mrs Cunnane, Ms Doran, Mrs McCormack and Ms Travers
