  1. Children’s arrival to school

In terms of the children’s arrival to school, it is planned to begin school at 8:50 a.m. and teachers will be ready to receive their class through the classroom fire door from this time. We are allowing for a 20-minute window for children to arrive to their class up until 9:10 a.m.

In the interests of public help, we plan to minimise the number of visitors to our campus including parents. For that reason, we have put together the following plan;

** Please note that any parents on the school campus must wear a mask at all times**

** All parents and children on the campus must maintain social distance while walking to and from their classrooms, follow the arrows, and stay on the correct side of the path where marked**

  • 2nd Class

We ask parents to bring their children to the Main Gate of the School or the Shelerin Rd. Gate for 08:50 a.m. The Community School Gate will be closed. Staff will be present and supervising the yard and grounds.  The children are returning to the same classrooms as last year. One parent can accompany child to classroom door for the first day only on Tuesday 1st of September.

  • 1st Class

The First Classes are moving to a classroom block on the other side of school exiting onto the school yard. This is a new setting for the First Class pupils. One adult is permitted to see their child to the classroom door in the morning for the first two weeks of school. From Monday the 14th of September, we ask parents of First Class pupils to see their child to the school gates.
