Transition and Change
It is hard to believe that this school year has almost come to an end. It has been an incredible, wonderful and exciting year for everyone with so much to celebrate and smile about! It is only natural that when something with so much happiness and fun comes to an end that sadness and tears appear. And to add to that, the transition and change that is looming for all the children, and parents I hasten to add, brings other emotions which I hope I can help with this year...
Primary 7 children will leave school on Wednesday 24th June after their Mass. All the staff, children and I will miss them greatly. We wish each of them continued happiness and success in their new school.
A year is a long time in the life of a young child! Many children become very attached to their teacher and classroom during the year. On Thursday 25th June each child will move to their new class and meet their new teacher. The children will spend the last few days of this term before they leave for their summer holidays with their new teacher and in their new classroom.
I hope that this will help to take away any anxieties and answer the many questions which some children may have before returning to school in September.
Our new Intake to school in P1 will visit their new school on Friday 26th June and spend some time with their teacher, meet their P7 friends and begin to find their little feet in their lovely new surroundings.
This school year has been a most memorable and wonderful time for me as Principal of this beautiful school. I thank you all for your kindness and support which I value greatly. I wish everyone a happy and safe summer!
