Dear Parents & Guardians  This school year our classes will be using Seesaw (http://seesaw.me), a secure online journal where students can document and reflect on what they are learning in class. Your child will be able to add the things we work on (including photos, videos, worksheets, drawings and voice recordings) to their Seesaw journal and we can share them privately with you and other family members to view and comment on throughout the school year.  In order for your child to use Seesaw, the app needs your child’s name in order to be able to associate work like their photos, videos or voice recordings with their account. Seesaw only uses this information to provide the service and doesn’t advertise in Seesaw, create profiles of students, or share or sell your child’s personal information or journal content.  You can read more about their strong privacy promises here: https://web.seesaw.me/privacy.  Under an EU law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in order for your child to use Seesaw, the school must get your consent. For more information on GDPR, please visit https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/reform/rights-citizens.   I hope that your child will enjoy using Seesaw to document and share their learning this year.

This week we have to say a sad farewell to our colleague and friend, Ms Mary Kirwan. Mary has been an important and valued member of our staff since 2015 and she will be greatly missed by us all and also by the many pupils she worked with over that time. On behalf of our school community, we want to say thank you to Mary for her wonderful contribution to the life of the school and to wish her all the best in her new life in Co. Wexford.
BOM Agreed Report  January 2021 In these difficult times this is an exciting opportunity for children and young people to avail of subsidised Performance Music education sessions, which will offer children and young people a unique opportunity to learn an new musical instrument or develop one they already have, engage socially with other like-minded young musicians, develop their musicianship and most importantly, have fun.  Music Generation Kildare has recently announced their online Instrumental and Vocal Hubs, available to all young musicians across the county.  These exciting new programmes will be delivered weekly by an excellent team of Musician Educators, all of whom are already established professional musicians, both nationally and internationally. For Parents and Guardians  Here is the link to our February HSE Health and Wellbeing Newsletter. It is focused on "Wellbeing for Parents" and signposts to trusted resources to support parents and children’s wellbeing during school closures.
We would also like to highlight the free online Stress Control programme which is running again this February and March. For information and timetable see www.stresscontrol.ie
PARENTS’ COURSE The Dyslexia Association of Ireland is offering a Parents' Course on Dyslexia. The next one begins on March 9. This is a great practical course for parents, and is especially beneficial for those whose child has recently been identified with dyslexia. The course provides an overview of all the main topics parents need to understand so they can best support their child. Full details on our next parents' course are available at https://www.tickettailor.com/events/dyslexiaireland/463953 Please share this with any parents who may be interested.
It was lovely to reconnect with all our pupils this week after the mid-term break. We have had another week of great work so enjoy the good weather this weekend. We wish all the pupils who have already started back at school and those who are returning to school on Monday - especially younger brothers and sisters and cousins and friends- the best of luck. We hope we will be able to join them soon. In the meantime we ask parents and guardians to read the letter here from the Chief Medical Officer.
