End of year Calendar

Dear Parents,

It is great that we are coming to the end of week three of a full return to school without Covid incident. We all really appreciate the extra care that you are taking in relation to testing and close contacts. The girls have been superb with the new in-school procedures and we look forward to everyone’s continuing cooperation to mitigate as much risk of community transmission at Our Lady’s Grove as is possible.

I am writing to you today to explain the plans for the completion of the school year. As I am sure you are aware, our teaching staff have a significant extra body of work to complete this year in order to conduct accreditation processes for our 6th and 3rd year students. The time for these mandatory processes needs to be provided for within our regular end of year calendar. We have done this with as little impact on the student experience as possible.

We will send full timetables by email to all students’ school email account on Tuesday. There will be alternative finishing times which will be clearly marked on those timetables. The following are the basic outlines of each year’s final two weeks:
