THE IMPACT OF COVID ON OUR STUDENTS

Sligo Grammar School will conducting a survey of parents to assess the impact of Covid on students from 2nd to 6th yr. The survey is part of our the School Self-Evaluation, and SGS wants to assess the impact of Covid on students in school during the Covid lockdowns and Covid restrictions. The survey should take about 5 minutes and the school appreciates parents’ support in responding to this survey. School self-evaluation is a process where we, as a school, look at how we do things, build on our strengths and work on ways to improve. 

The survey will be emailed to parents next week.
