5th class children got messy finger-painting some colourful dandelions for art.  Since schools have reopened we have had several primary school children arriving unaccompanied to the library after school. Unfortunately, due to the current COVID19 guidelines issued by the Local Government Management Agency, libraries cannot allow children age 12 and under to attend the library on their own. They must be accompanied by an adult, or older teen. As the number of people that we can allow into the library building at one time is restricted we are asking people to book a 30 minute session to come into Leixlip Library. To book a 30 minute session for Leixlip Library go to https://www.supersaas.co.uk/schedule/KCC_Booking_System/Leixlip_Library . We hope to have lots of children using the library over the coming months, and hope that our normal walk-in service will return soon.   We will make contact with all schools in the area when these restrictions are lifted, or if any of the information above changes. Many thanks and kind regards,   Silje   Silje Skuterud | Librarian | Leixlip Community Library, Captain's Hill, Leixlip, Co. Kildare, W23 WR96 | T: 01 6060050 | E: sskuterud@kildarecoco.ie 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.    Le gach dea ghuí   Principal SPACE WEEK

Slán agus Beannacht le Mr Ó Casaide This week we must say a fond farewell to our Principal and our colleague Mr Seán Ó Casaide, after an inspiring 39 years in the teaching profession, 31 of which have been here in Scoil San Carlo Senior. His consistent contribution to the life of our school has been immeasurable. His positivity and professionalism, compassion and consideration, his infectious enjoyment of the job and his great sense of humour, will be sadly missed. We know the pupils and the whole community, together with our Board of Management and our Parents Association, join us in congratulating Mr Ó Casaide on his imminent retirement and in wishing him a well-deserved rest, followed no doubt by many wonderful and fulfilling adventures. Seán, it has been a privilege to work with you. Your outstanding leadership has seen us through difficult times and ever-changing circumstances. Thank you for all your hard work and perseverance, your commitment and fortitude which has inspired and encouraged us every day. Guíonn muid gach áth, sláinte an bhradáin agus sonas ort lá i ndiaidh lae. From all at San Carlo Senior
On behalf of all the pupils, a representative from each class presented Mr Ó Casaide with a Fingerprint Tree to mark the occasion of his retirement. Each and every child and member of staff in the school had put their fingerprint on the piece of art.
