1st Year Induction

Dear Parents/Guardians/Incoming 1st Yrs,

We hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well as we journey through these uncertain times. We here at Calasanctius College are looking forward to meeting you and are eagerly planning for your Induction in August. Traditionally, our Induction program is run for incoming First Year students on the first two days of 1st Yr. It gives students the opportunity to familiarise themselves with their new school, meet their class group, get their timetable, locker, journal and to make new friends. They are the only students in the school for these two days. However, currently we are in the unusual situation of not knowing what format our Induction program may take this year - virtual or real world? Please see below for provisional return dates and arrangements for August.

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 will be back in touch with you again in August nearer the Induction dates with more specific details as to the format and content of our Induction program. For now, continue to stay safe and have a happy and healthy Summer.

See you in August,

Córa Ní Loinsigh
