THANK YOU FROM ALL IN GLASHEEN BOYS' SCHOOL

Posted on 2020-10-23 08:57:51

On behalf of everyone in Glasheen Boys' School, I would like to thank all of our parents and guardians for their support and co-operation since we reopened in August. Thank you also for all the wonderful calls and emails of gratitude, which mean so, so much. We are very proud of how everyone has worked so hard to make things normal and fun, in extraordinary times. Keep up the brilliant work, have a great mid-term break and we'll look forward to seeing all the boys again when we reopen on Monday 2nd November. Keep safe. Michael Daly.

HALLOWEEN 2020

Posted on 2020-10-20 11:09:40

As children are unlikely to get the chance to dress up or go 'trick or treating' this year, any boys who would like to come to school, dressed as their favourite book character, or wearing a football jersey, or come dressed for Halloween, will be welcome to do so on Friday next. To keep everyone safe, we ask that there is no changing in school, no onesies, no props, no masks, no wands, or elaborate costumes. Best wishes to all.

MID TERM BREAK

Posted on 2020-10-18 20:39:16

It's almost 8 weeks since we reopened, so the boys will be having their mid term break on Friday next, 23rd October. (School will be closed from Monday 26th October until Friday 30th October, inclusive). In spite of the many enforced changes, the boys have enjoyed many happy times over the past 8 weeks and have adapted so well.

We're all very proud of them. I'm also extremely proud of all of the staff for their support and resilience. They have been amazing. Thanks to all members of our school community for the wonderful team work. Keep up the great work.

UPDATED MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL

Posted on 2020-10-06 18:27:31

Dear Parents / Guardians & Friends,

As we all work very hard together to keep everyone safe, I firstly want to thank everyone for your support and understanding. The morning drop / afternoon collection has worked out well, generally and the boys have been wonderful to adapt to the new normal.

In some ways, it's better than before, as the boys are learning to be independent and confident in themselves, which is really fantastic. We're there to welcome them every day and to send them off safely in the evening but we appreciate your co-operation in all of this.

A few reminders:
1. When bringing children to school, please try to park and stride, rather than parking directly in front of the school gate, or in disabled parking spots. The area in front of the entrance gate is intended for pedestrians, or those waiting to collect children.
2. Please do not stop your car in the middle of the road to drop your child/children out. This is extremely unsafe and causes traffic hold ups behind, stretching back down the hill, to the Glasheen Road.
3. Please wear a mask if you need to enter the school grounds, for the safety of all.
4. If waiting on a test result, please follow medical advice and do not attend school until it is safe to do so and the result is confirmed as negative.

Thank you all, once again for your amazing work, as we really appreciate everything you are doing. Thanks also for all of the very positive feedback. Most importantly of all, we are hugely proud of each and every one of our boys.

Keep safe.   Sincerely,

Michael Daly.

DROPPING CHILDREN TO SCHOOL

Posted on 2020-09-25 13:05:11

We need to keep the area outside the main school gate as clear as possible. Thank you to everyone for working so hard to do so. It is very important to remember to park & stride and NOT to stop your car in the middle of the road, to drop children off to school. Two reasons: 1. Safety of your children 2. By stopping in the middle of the road, you will cause dangerous traffic jams, down the hill behind you. Thank you for your cooperation.

Again, there will be a strict limit to the numbers in the church, to comply with public health guidelines, so it will be the confirmation child and two adults. One seat will be allocated to each boy & the two adults accompanying him. A parent is very welcome to act as sponsor, or sponsor by proxy.

Only boys whose parent/guardian has made contact with the school, in the past few months, to indicate their son is making his Confirmation and submitted the paperwork, will be on the list for Confirmation. The suggested dress code for the ceremony is that pupils may wear their secondary school uniforms.   All adults and confirmation pupils present in the church are asked to follow public health guidelines, including wearing a mask. Wishing you all a great day and may the sun shine.

Unfortunately, numbers in the church, on the day, will be restricted, to comply with public health guidelines. One seat will be allocated to each boy & two adults accompanying him. The boy will sit on the outside of the seat. The suggested dress code for the ceremony is the school uniform, with white shirt, Communion rosette is optional.  As the First Penance ceremony could not take place, general absolution will be given to all of the boys at the start of the First Communion ceremony. We would ask all boys to be in their seats, 15 minutes before the ceremony begins. All adults are asked to wear masks.
