1st Year Induction 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians/Incoming 1st Yrs,

Induction for incoming 1st Yr students of the Class of 2021 will take place over two days on the 25th & 26th August 2021. We will be back in touch with you nearer the time with further information and the full schedule for our Induction programme. Each year we really look forward to this as we are excited to meet our new year group, and student feedback confirms that 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 are now 'live' for completion so please feel free to complete and submit them 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 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. It is essential for everyone's health and safety that we all work together to continue to build on all the hard work and sacrifice of the past 15 months, as we strive to maintain Calasanctius College a Covid-free environment.

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
