Congratulations to all the children and staff of Drinagh NS who were awarded the amber flag by Pieta recently. The Amber Flag is a mental health initiative designed to help schools promote positive mental health within the educational system.
I hope that you are keeping well in these challenging times.
Understandably, parishes and schools have contacted this office recently seeking an update on the current situation in regard to forthcoming First Communion ceremonies.
In response, Bishop Fintan has written a short letter to families, as well as the First Holy Communion Children, which you will find attached to this post. As you can see it gently lets each family know that First Communion ceremonies will be arranged when it is safe to do so and in line with Government advice and H.S.E. guidance.
You will also see a link to the Cork and Ross Diocesan website to assist families and schools to continue children’s faith formation at this time.
This letter clearly applies only to schools where Communion ceremonies are scheduled to take place in 2020.
Fr. Michael Keohane,
Cork and Ross Diocesan Office,

Mrs. Perkins room were busy building and designing towers as part of Engineering Week. The class experiment with different designs and materials. They problem solved when certain designs did not work and investigated what materials worked well and how these materials affected the design of the structures.
Well done to our boys team who competed in the FAI Primary Schools 5's today in Clonakilty. Unfortunately they didn't qualify for the next round but the lads competed bravely in some tough conditions.
