Senior Infants Work, April 27th


Dear Parents.

Hope you are keeping well. We have set up email addresses so parents can send us pictures of the children’s work. We can then send comments back. It will be a nice way of communicating with the children. Please ensure that pictures of work and not the children are sent. Emails can only be sent by parents. We have updated the scheme of work for this week. It is not compulsory to finish all activities it is merely a guide. Keep safe!

Kind Regards,

S.Mc Adam and B.Fallon
