Preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation: What Parents can do:
We are all so proud of the children from Junior Infants to Sixth class in Creagh National School! We missed you so much over the past six months and spent many long days over the holidays making the school ready for your return. And it was all worth it!! You have been amazing over the past two days! You have followed all the new rules and procedures brilliantly and you have done so with smiles on your faces.... even though things are a little bit different now. We look forward to an amazing year with you all.
Thank you for all your super efforts and we know that you will keep them up!
Thanks also to all your parents who have helped us to make your transition back to school as smooth and calm as possible.
Together, we are a great team!

It has come to our attention that there is some misinformation with regard to the staggered start for infant classes and the length of time that this arrangement will last for.
It is intended that the later start for infant classes, that has been carefully considered as a necessary arrangement until children get used to new routines, is a temporary measure. It is hoped that the school will revert to a common entry time for all classes as soon as infant children are comfortable enough to move quickly into classrooms with little need for parental assistance or company. The speed at which this occurs will depend largely on the co-operation of our parents in putting these routines and practices in place. This will also depend on H.S.E. and D.E.S. advice with regard to Covid-19.
