Wow, what a start to the week that was! I hope that everyone in our community survived the storm without trauma.
Thank you so much to you all for your cooperation and understanding throughout.
I must mention a special Thank You to teachers Aoife and Orla who took over communications when my own home's electricity and connectivity went for 24 hours. Thanks also to our Chairperson Austin O'Sullivan who made himself available at all times of the morning, evening and weekend to ratify decisions to open or close the school. Thanks to the trojan workers at Aladdin, our communications providers, who worked non-stop on Sunday to make sure every school could get their texts through to families. The staff at the Department of Education, Educate Together Head Office, Irish Primary Principals' Network, the principal of CSCNS next door, Kidorama and providers of our after-school activities and evening exercise classes all worked through Sunday and then through the storm, supporting each other and working together. It was a wonderful display of community, of everyone coming together to keep everyone safe and informed, and I was proud to be a part of it.
Most of all, thanks to John, our caretaker, who bravely volunteered to be the first person back on campus yesterday to assess the damage. Thankfully, all was fine!
