School Assembly

Dear Students,

I hope that this letter finds you well and in good spirits and that our new distance learning programme is helping you to progress in your studies and giving you some routine to your day.  I know that I am finding it more and more difficult to not have the opportunity to meet with my friends, watch sport and hug those I love. Social distancing with my own mother on Mother’s Day was particularly difficult but I understand the importance of staying inside.   No matter how difficult we find being away from our friends and family and maintaining appropriate social distancing, I remind you of what I said at our final assembly: this is your opportunity to look after those in our community who are most at risk from Covid 19.  Your support for the Climate Change Action and our Green School have highlighted your social conscience and your desire to improve our world.  By following the guidance provided by the World Health Organisation and the Health Service Executive, you have the opportunity to save lives and I know the students of Sligo Grammar are more than up for the challenges we face. Each week in school we have an assembly and therefore, to maintain as much normality as possible, the Rev Patrick, our School Chaplain, has produced our first weekly School Assembly.  Please take the time to watch the clip and think of yourself sitting in the “old gym” with all your school friends. Click on the picture below to view the Assembly.

 

God Bless and Stay Safe,

Michael Hall, Headmaster
