As advised by the Department of Education all schools, pre-schools and further and higher education settings will remain closed to students until 5th May 2020.
The decision has been taken following advice from the NPHET (National Public Health Emergency Team) as part of efforts to contain the spread of Covid-19.
All young people and children are urged to practice social distancing, and to minimise physical contact to keep themselves and others healthy and to limit the spread of infection. This should include minimising social contact, avoiding meeting up and keeping physical space of two metres between each other. Parents and guardians are urged to support young people and children to follow those simple guidelines.
If you have not already done so please send your current email address whenever you get a chance to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Department of Health and the HSE have produced Covid-19 resources in a range of languages other than Irish and English which you can access below:

We hope you are all keeping safe and well during this difficult time.
