Cregmore National School

School Note. Friday, 17th July


Dear parents, guardians, pupils and staff.

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the Summer. Though the weather is mixed it is still very mild and the easing of restrictions has allowed us to travel and explore new destinations.

It is also very pleasing to hear that the government are confident that schools will reopen next September.

Congratulations to Mr Connell who was appointed Principal of Esker NS last week. We wish him the very best in his new role and thank him sincerely for his contribution to our school over the past decade. No doubt but Paul will make a great impact on his new school and bring his vast experience and leadership qualities to the fore. I am very aware that he will be missed by pupils, parents and colleagues but hopefully he will stay in touch with our community and see us on a regular basis.

However, every dark cloud has a silver lining and subsequently we are now delighted to be able to offer Ms Crehan a permanent contract. Caroline has remained very loyal to us over the past 5 years and she could have taken up several permanent positions in a number of local schools, but she chose to stay with us in the hope of one day availing of a permanent position. In addition, the positions of both Niamh and Mary are now more consolidated.

Prior to the easing of restrictions we were delighted that so many people availed of the school grounds as a meeting place and a playground for young children and families. However now that public playgrounds, playing pitches, swimming pools, and amusement centres have reopened, can we please ask that the school reverts to a private building ( for insurance purposes), and in addition we are commencing the painting of the exterior and the cleaning of doors, windows etc in preparation for reopening.

Finally, I hope you are all minding yourselves and adhering to the advice and of the HSE guidelines.

Kind Regards

Joe Kennelly.
