Our Mission Statement

 
Presentation College is, by choice, a truly co-educational school. We aim to prepare all of our pupils, girls and boys alike for the challenges, responsibilities and experience of adult life. All members of the school community - pupils, parents, teachers and other staff - are held in very high regard and their dignity, worth and individuality is respected. We strive to build a sense of community based on Christian values. The school’s Code of Conduct acknowledges this and aims to promote a culture of respect throughout the school. It recognises that good discipline enables good teaching and allows good learning to take place.

Physical Distancing is Vital in the Fight Against Covid-19


There has been a further announcement by the Taoiseach that, in line with public health advice, schools will remain closed until 19 April. In addition to maintaining ongoing engagement with students, one really important message you can assist with, is to convey to students, the absolute need to practice social and physical distancing, and to minimise physical contact with each other, to help avoid the spread of Covid-19. This should include advice to avoid meeting up and in all circumstances to adhere to HSE guidelines. As part of your school community, parents and guardians should also be urged to support their children to maintain the restrictions on congregating for the safety of all in their community. 

 

As part of your school community, parents and guardians should also be urged to support their children to maintain the restrictions on congregating for the safety of all in their community. In order to support you in getting this important public health message across to your school communities information notices (in 17 different languages) are available here:

President Higgins – Message for our young people

The JMB and the other management bodies representing all of the second-level schools in the State are communicating with their schools asking them to forward the message delivered by President Higgins on the importance of social distancing to the parents of students in their schools.

 

https://president.ie/en/media-library/news-releases/statement-from-president-of-ireland-following-his-signature-of-the-health-preservation-and-protection-and-other-emergency-measures-in-the-public-interest-bill-2020

 

President Higgins is urging young people to respond in a generous way to the Health Service Executive’s advice on measures to alleviate the spread of Covid19. The management bodies are working together to ensure that appropriate messaging is delivered to all second-level students. This further reinforces the pronouncements of An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, other government ministers and health officials on the responsibility of all to adhere to social distance guidelines and to respond to HSE advice at this time of national emergency.

The survival kit contains a guide which will show you the fundamental functions of SchoolWise that will assist you during this event. Along with the short and easy-to-follow guide, there are links to articles with a step-by-step instructions on how to use these features. 

We hope that you find this helpful and we want to reassure you that we will be here to answer any questions or queries you may have. We have already assisted hundreds of parents, students and teachers in the last few days to get access to the platform and on-boarded thousands of new students. Whatever it takes - we are here to help.
