Return to school

We return to school on Tuesday August 31st at 8.50am to 2.30pm.  You can leave your children at either the purple gate in the lane or the green gate on St Helena’s Road.  We ask that children bring their pencil case with them on Monday and this remains in school.  No school bags again this year, as we are still following public health advice on COVID – 19

Retirement of Ms. Mc Grath, Ms. Mc Cormack, Ms. Burke

In the last week we have had to say goodbye to two legendary figures in our school Ms Burke and Ms McCormack.  We also said goodbye to Ms. Mc Grath in June.
With a nearly combined 120 years service in the school of St Malachys we have been lucky to have three such stalwarts.
Their commitment to the school is illuminated in that all travelled long distances to get to Finglas South each morning.
As well as the current group of the children they have taught many parents, Aunties Uncles, cousins ,friends and even some Grandparents.
Their names are synonymous with St Malachys.
As a staff we have lost three of the most finest colleagues and three of the most finest of people.
Enjoy your retirement ladies you have certainly earned it.
Staff of St Malachys

Consent form for remote learning through Seesaw

Dear Parents:

This school year our class will be using Seesaw (http://seesaw.me), a secure online journal where students can document and reflect on what they are learning in class. Your child will be able to add the things we work on (including photos, videos, worksheets, drawings and voice recordings) to their Seesaw journal and we can share them privately with you and other family members to view and comment on throughout the school year.
In order for your child to use Seesaw, the app needs your child’s name in order to be able to associate work like their photos, videos or voice recordings with their account. Seesaw only uses this information to provide the service and doesn’t advertise in Seesaw, create profiles of students, or share or sell your child’s personal information or journal content. You can read more about their strong privacy promises here: https://web.seesaw.me/privacy.
Under an EU law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in order for your child to use Seesaw, the school must get your consent. For more information on GDPR, please visit https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/reform/rights-citizens.
hope that your child will enjoy using Seesaw to document and share their learning this year. Please sign below and return this permission slip so that your child can use Seesaw.
