Return to School 2022

Good morning all,

This is just a short communication to update you on return to school 2022 at Our Lady’s Grove Secondary School. You should all have received a mail drop to your homes in late June/early July detailing the dates for return, booklists and other important information.

I just wanted to update you on what has been happening since. After five years of looking for it, the school was finally approved for a full heating system refit in late June. This 1.4 million euro project has been proceeding at pace ever since. When completed, we will have a 21st century heating system with climate controls in every room, brand new piping and radiators throughout and new state of the art condenser boilers. This is a very ambitious project to be squeezed in to a six/seven week period. I am working very closely with the contractors and they are doing everything in their power to get the project completed.

This does mean that we do not have access to the school building at all at the moment. This fact makes administrative tasks very challenging as we do not have access to IT equipment, phone lines or offices. Normally we would expect to open our school office tomorrow, but that will now not be possible. We do hope to be able to operate a skeleton staff from next week.

In the mean time should you have any queries, please contact the following email addresses and we will get back to you as soon as possible:

We do not anticipate any interruption to our planned return to school with our new first years attending on the 29th of August and all other years in the days following.

Kind regards

Colm Dooley
