3rd April 2020
I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe. The school today begins the Easter break. Teachers will not be setting additional work for the holidays. It is important that the children take a break at this challenging time. There has been a lot of change and readjustment in their lives of late and that will take some processing time. Some families have expressed a desire to continue in a newly established routine. You know your family best and you will know the best approach to take with your child/ren.
I have curated a series of resources which you might find useful. None of this is compulsory work, it’s merely there for you to dip in and out of as the need arises or as you might wish. It is not intended to put pressure on any family, rather the hope is the opposite, that you have material at your fingertips, a go-to bank of resources. I am limited in the number of attachments I can upload per email so additional emails with attachments will follow.
I am attaching to this email a link to a You Tube video of today’s assembly. It’s a little different to what we are used to in Tara Hill NS but we are all finding new ways of doing things! This video is intended for the school community only and I would very much appreciate if it stayed in this circle please! https://youtu.be/nyfd2J8k60U
I am also asking parents for another favour if possible. As you know, at the beginning of each month the school issues a Monthly Newsletter. In its usual form that is not possible at the moment. However, in the likely event of further school closures, I would like if we could instead circulate a Positivity Newsletter via Aladdin and so would appreciate if parents might send on “news” of achievements (nothing is too small!)…riding a bike, tying shoelaces, achieving an online challenge, successful baking etc. Anything you or your child/ren think is worth celebrating and that they would like to share with the rest of their school friends. Please send this on to firstname.lastname@example.org clearly marking it NEWSLETTER in the subject line. Your help on this would be most appreciated.
Finally, I would like to thank you all for your help and understanding at this time and also for the appreciative and supportive messages that we have received. On behalf of the entire school staff I would like to wish you and your family a safe and happy Easter.
Mise le Meas,
