Firstly, we would like to welcome everyone back from a difficult and peculiar school year. The last two years of school has been challenging, however, we should all be proud of how far we have come. The resilience displayed within the school has portrayed how strong the school is as a whole. Throughout these tough times each and every member of the school community has displayed the characteristics that Our Lady of Lourdes prides itself on. We have all joined together to protect each other and this is something that we take great pride in.
We would like to welcome the newest members of the family, the first years and any new students. We hope that your school experience is as heartfelt and supportive as ours has been. We hope that you can adapt to the Covid-19 guidelines with optimism and never hesitate to ask for guidance or support when needed.
To our fellow sixth year students, we admire your determination and patience throughout these difficult times. I think we can all agree that it has been a struggle to adapt to these uncertain times. We are honoured to be part of such an admirable school group and we wish you all the best in the future.
Finally, we would like to thank the teachers and the staff for their motivation and their constant support. We would like to give a huge welcome to our new Caretaker Pat, who has willingly taken over Michael’s job. We are extremely grateful for your hard work both during lockdown, in school, and since our return as we journey towards our Leaving Cert exams.
