I hope you and your family are keeping well.
Following school closure on March 12th 2020 we now look forward to re-opening our school safely, in line with Department of Education and Skills guidance and recommendations.
This will require the co-operation of all members of our School Community – BoM, School Leadership Team, Staff, Parents and Pupils.
The Department of Education and Skills recently issued documents relating to the Reopening of Schools .
1. Reopening Our Schools : The Roadmap for the Full Return to School
2. COVID -19 Response Plan fpr the safe and sustainable reopening of Primary and Special Schools.
Scoil Naomh Eltin is preparing its reopening plan in line with these guidelines and attached you will find the schools COVID-19 Policy Statement as per Department of Education and Skills guidelines.
All of the above documents are available to view on our school website.
The BoM will keep you informed of re-opening plans as they evolve and will share with you how you may support the school in its re-opening safely.
We are currently finalising the details of our re-opening plan. The school will open on Wednesday August 26th. There will be an initial induction period whereby classes will be welcomed to school at different times to allow staff to practice safe school access and to ensure a smooth transition for each student. We are aware that students have been out of school for almost six months and understand that returning may be a challenge for some. Our initial focus will be on student safety, emotional well being and security.
We anticipate with hope the return of our students to school. We will be in touch with you early next week with the final reopening plan.

As an end of year project Mr Murray's 5th Class A and Ms. O'Sullivan's 5th Class B took on a little project to remember these strange times. Tom Roberts (aka tomfoolery) wrote the poem 'The Great Realisation', which is all about the good things that have have happened amidst the very difficult.
