1st Year Induction 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians/Incoming 1st Yrs,

Induction for incoming 1st Yr students of the Class of 2021 will take place in August 2021 and we will be back in touch with you nearer the time with further information and details of our Induction programme. Every year we really look forward to this as we are excited to meet our new students and find the programme provides a great introduction to school life in Calasanctius College.

In advance of entry, there are various forms that must be submitted which can be found here. It is essential that we have the most up-to-date information on file for each family so we can offer the best possible care for your son/daughter in the coming year. It is extremely important that you are contactable at all times. For this reason, we ask ALL our families to complete the Nomination form so contingencies are in place should you be unavailable at any time. These forms will be made 'live' for completion at a later date in the weeks ahead and we will be back in contact with you to alert you to their availability along with any necessary instructions.

We are conscious that for your son/daughter, this is the beginning of a new phase not only in their education but also in their personal development. We understand that the transition from the familiarity of Primary School to a new Secondary School can be challenging and daunting. Calasanctius has many formal support structures in place to aid and support each student's arrival into our school. Please see links below for some important information about school life in Calasanctius College.

We are really looking forward to welcoming you into the Calasanctius College community, and are even hopeful that we may be able to organise to meet up with our new students in person before the end of this school year. However, this this will be very much dependent on public health guidelines governing what will be possible for us if and when we reopen again. It is essential for everyone's health and safety that we all work together to make this a success and give us every chance of maintaining a Covid-free environment. We will be asking for the full support and the co-operation of all our students as the weeks progress, and we hopefully find ourselves back in the classroom again soon.

I have no doubt that we all want the same thing and together we can work to achieve it and make it happen. Until then, please continue to keep safe and monitor your emails regularly for any further communications/updates from us.

Le meas,

Córa Ni Loinsigh
