MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL TO ALL IN OUR CURRENT & FUTURE SCHOOL COMMUNITY     (Last Updated 13th July 2020)

See here for Online Payments, Book Lists, New Junior Infants, Pupils Seeking to join Glasheen BNS, School Reopening, Rescheduled Communion & Confirmation Dates, End of Year Reports.

Dear Parents / Guardians, A very warm welcome to you all. As the summer begins, Here is some Helpful Information & Important Things to  Remember:

1. ONLINE PAYMENTS for school expenses and Book Rental are now up and running through Databiz, our school’s administration system. This is for the convenience and safety of all, at this time. Parents / Guardians from Senior Infants to 6th Class should have received an email from Databiz, explaining how to go about paying. We have made the School Expenses (photocopying, 24 hour insurance etc.), as well as Book Rental, as one payment.

2. BOOK LISTS 2020/2021 are now available on our website. Click on the Book Lists tab.

3. NEW JUNIOR INFANTS 2020 – While we could not hold our welcome afternoon in May this year, we sent a Welcome Pack and details of the Book List and other helpful Information to all of our incoming Junior Infants. A Welcome Video is also available, for the boys, which is on this website, as well as our School Facebook & Twitter pages.

4. NEW PUPILS SEEKING TO JOIN US IN 2020 – Any parents seeking places for their son/s in autumn 2020, please email ‘office@glasheenboys.com‘. We will respond, by return and be happy to answer any questions you may have about the many benefits of attending our school. If you have a friend or relative, seeking a place for their son, please advise them to contact the school without delay, as we only have very limited availability, in most classes.

5. REOPENING OF SCHOOL IN THE AUTUMN – Please be assured we are doing everything to ensure we will be ready to welcome all of our pupils to school in the autumn, while following all safety guidelines. We will publish full return to school arrangements once national guidelines have been confirmed. The safety of all our pupils and staff remains our priority when putting these arrangements in place.

6. Please remember that AT THE START OF THE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR (2020/2021), all class teachers will be doing considerable revision of the work from the previous school year. We want to support you all now but we will be revising, so please, please don’t panic. Please note that Standardised Testing has also  been cancelled for this year by Department of Education & Skills.

7. PROVISIONAL COMMUNION & CONFIRMATION DATES 2020 – First Communion for Glasheen Boys’ School has been rescheduled, subject to public health advice, on Saturday 26th September 2020, in The Lough Church @ 11.00 a.m.. Numbers in the church, on the day, will be restricted. The provisional date for Confirmation for Glasheen Boys’ School is Friday 2nd October 2020 @ 10.30 a.m.. More details to follow.

8. END OF YEAR REPORTS were emailed to parents this year.

Wishing you all a safe and restful summer. We will look forward to seeing you in late August.          Michael Daly
