A Christmas Message from Ms. Roz:

Warm greetings at Christmas to you all. We’ve had an eventful first term. Thank you for helping to keep our school, children and staff  safe and calm and healthy.

We have come to the end of a long term and the whole school community is looking forward to a well-earned rest. I hope Christmas cheers us and lifts our spirits away from the cold, dark and depressing news that we seem to hear 24/7.

Thanks to Mrs. Nelson and the senior children on the weekly advent prayer services which reminded us what Christmas is all about. The Monday services helped keep us all hopeful and joyful about the important things in our lives.

The school looks extra wonderful with staff and children dressed in all sorts of wonderful Christmas jumpers! Christmas has always been a magical time in St. Joseph’s  and this year was extra special when we  got to see the excitement on the faces of our children during the  Panto, Little Red Riding Hood,  as they munched on fresh popcorn straight from the popcorn machines.

I am sure that pupils, parents and guardians would like to join with me in thanking all of the staff and Board of Management for their continued tremendous hard work and commitment to our pupils.

Last but in no way the least, we thank our pupils – you inspire us each and every day and bring real fun and joy into the heart of our school.

God bless you all.I  wish that on this holiday season you will end  2021 with the most beautiful times and memories with your family and friends.

COVID-19 vaccine information for parents of children aged 5-11

The HSE has published detailed information and guidance for parents about COVID-19 vaccines for children aged 5-11. This aims to help parents and guardians of 5-11 year old children make an informed decision when it’s time for their child to be offered a COVID-19 vaccine.

 

Registration for the vaccine will open shortly, with priority being placed on children who are more at risk from COVID-19 or children who have a high-risk person in the family. Parents and guardians can read this information on https://www2.hse.ie/screening-and-vaccinations/covid-19-vaccine/get-the-vaccine/covid-19-vaccination-for-children/  or they can download these information booklets from HSE.ie.
