Welcome Letter to First Year Parents and Students

Dear First Year Student, Parents and Guardians,

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the start of this school year to Ardscoil na Tríonóide. Life will be different for all of us, but we will continue to do many things as we have always done them. Invariably, student care is our priority and with your co-operation we can ensure the safety of all our students.

Respect is the cornerstone of how we operate at Ardscoil. In this time of the Covid 19 pandemic, respecting the new measures put in place will ensure we can keep ourselves and each other safe.

We will spend time helping first year students to settle in and become familiar with the school, classrooms and timetables. Senior students from our Cairdeas group will be on hand to help them to settle in. ​Ms Roche (Year Head)​ will be present and available to support students each day and every first year class group will have their own tutor whom they will meet every week.

We encourage students to ask questions and to look for help. We understand that it will take time to settle in, especially with the extra care and protections that are now in place until this pandemic has passed.

First year students will get help from their teachers and tutors to become familiar with Google Classroom which will be used extensively to support teaching and learning.

For your information, we have outlined all the new measures and protocols now in place in a protocols circular on our website. Please ensure you read it carefully. It is important to emphasise that any visits to the school must be by appointment only. You can ring if you have any “settling in” issues or queries and we will help you out. As you can appreciate, circumstances and needs can change and we may have to adjust our protocols as the year progresses.

From now on, all general information contact with parents will be directly through the school app: Ardscoil IClassCMS which you need to download onto your phone and register on. You will receive all notifications, texts and up to date information through this medium ​only ​ . We also have a dedicated Covid 19 page on our school website:​www.ardscoil.ie​ which will contain all up to date information and details.

We look forward to working with you and hope your years in Ardscoil na Tríonóide are happy, fruitful and a time that will be treasured.
