Tá pobal Cholásite Oiriall suaite an an choróinvíreas agus údar maith againn. Tá daltaí neirbhíseach agus buartha mar nach bhfuil réiteach nó freagraí ann ach caithfidh muid a bheith foighneach agus tuisceanach. 

The Coláiste Oiriall school community is part of a worldwide pandemic that is impacting on so many people in so may ways.

We think of our Leaving and Junior Certificate students who are unsure of what will happen next. I appreciate that this is stressful and traumatic. The only consolation I can offer is that students throughout Ireland and indeed throughout the world have abandoned their classrooms as a measure to combat the coronavirus. Every student is experiencing the same – this virus doesn’t give an advantage to one student over another student.

Alternatives arrangements will be put in place and the Department of Education will announce them as they arrive at these decisions. We simply can’t plan ahead. We don’t know what the next few months has in store for us and this can make people anxious and nervous. These emotions are very understandable.

Students should try to maintain a routine. This may include some exercise – a run, walk or cycle or have a football kick around with your siblings in the back garden in the fresh air. These activities are good for your mental health and will help you through this unprecedented time in the history of our country. We will continue to support our students anyway we can. We look forward to soon hearing the school bell mobilizing students to class in Coláiste Oiriall in the near future. Níor chaill fear an mhisnigh riamh. Schools are closed to students at present to prevent the spread of this highly contagious and potentially lethal virus. By avoiding assembling and socialising in groups, students will be playing their part in supporting the national health campaign.

Groups should be no greater than two or three. Déanfaidh bhur n-iompar difear! Coinnigí bhur gciorcal comhluadair an-bheag.
