Calasanctius College, Oranmore

1st Year Induction

Dear Parents/Guardians/Incoming 1st Yrs,

1st Yr Induction takes place on Wed 26th August & Thurs 27th August from 9am to 1.15pm on both days. Please click here to see more information regarding arrangements.

We would ask that you take a few minutes to complete and submit the various forms 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 are asking ALL families to complete the Nomination form this year so contingencies are in place should you be unavailable at any time. Please complete and submit the various forms at your earliest possible convenience.

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 opening up again and welcoming students back - the corridors have been far too silent! However, this reopening will be considerably different to those which have gone before. 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. Please take time to read the letter and co-operate with procedures which have been outlined. We will be asking for your full support and the co-operation of our students as the weeks progress, and we acclimatise to our new 'normal'.

I have no doubt that we all want the same thing and together we can work to achieve it and make it happen. We look forward to meeting you all on August 26th.

See you then,

Córa Ni Loinsigh
