The Holy Family School for the Deaf are hosting a fundraising Golf Classic event on Friday 22nd April 2022 in St Margaret’s Golf & Country Club, Co Dublin. All funds raised via this event will go towards a new 18 seater bus for Holy Family School for the Deaf. It is very important that the Holy Family Deaf School can fully engage with learning in external environments. A new bus can be used to bring our students on educational field trips for example a trip to the Print Museum, National Art Gallery, Kildare National Studs, Titanic in Belfast and so much more.
We would truly appreciate if your company/organisation would consider being involved in our event.

The bad weather didn’t stop our Green School ambassadors today from doing the Beach Clean Up on Sandymount Beach. They found plastics, glass, and other rubbish littered around the beach. Well Done to all! You did us proud. Thank you to Ms. Rankin and Ms. Kavanagh for leading Green School. @CleanCoasts @GreenSchoolsIre
The HSE continue to rollout the COVID-19 vaccination programme and with over 90% of those aged 12 years and above fully vaccinated. For anyone aged 12 and over who hasn’t had their COVID-19 vaccine yet; dose 1 or 2 they can register on https://vaccine.hse.ie/ for an appointment in a HSE clinic. People can also talk to their GP or local pharmacy about getting their COVID-19 vaccine. Booster clinics are also open for eligible people aged 16 years and older. Visit www.hse.ie for more information.
COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5 to 11 years The National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) recommends parents and guardians consider vaccinating their 5 to 11-year-old children. COVID-19 vaccine is particularly recommended if children:
· Have a health condition that puts them at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19
· live with a younger child or adult who is at risk of severe illness if they get COVID-19 e.g. another child with complex medical needs, or an immunocompromised adult The vaccine that will be offered to children aged 5 to 11 years is Comirnaty® Children’s formulation.
Children in this age group will be given a smaller dose of the vaccine than adults.
As part of this stage of the COVID-19 vaccination programme, information for people considering vaccinating their children including information about the benefits and risk of vaccination and information about how to get vaccinated is available on https://bit.ly/HSEC19511
A cartoon strip has also been developed to help children understand what will happen when they go to a HSE clinic to get their COVID-19 vaccine https://bit.ly/C19Cartoon511
Getting COVID-19 vaccines with other vaccines NIAC advises that children aged 5 to 11 years wait at least 2 weeks between getting a COVID-19 vaccine and other vaccines, like the flu vaccine or 4 in 1 and MMR vaccines. Children aged 2 to 17 years can get the free nasal flu vaccine through participating GPs and pharmacies until the end of this month. Information about the flu vaccination programme is available on the HSE website at www.hse.ie/flu. A list of pharmacies giving flu vaccines is also available on https://bit.ly/PhFluFinder Children in Junior Infants may also be due their 4 in 1 and MMR vaccine, school teams will work with your school to ensure where possible the vaccination programme continues and children whose parents have consented for them to receive 4in1 and MMR vaccine can do so.
Consent Only parent(s) and legal guardian(s) are entitled to provide consent for vaccination for students under 16 years of age. A video covering information about consent is available from our office YouTube Channel at https://youtu.be/vE1X5AcwNgE
***** UPDATE ***** In light of Dublin moving into Orange alert within the last hour, the Board of Management have decided it is safer if our pupils and staff are not travelling during this period. Therefore our school will remain closed tomorrow (Wednesday 8th December) We will update you further tomorrow
Our students were festively creative as they created beautiful Christmas Cards. Art teacher John Canning co ordinated this initiative and invited all students in HFSD three schools, Early Intervention, Primary and Post Primary to create their own design for their Christmas Cards. The designs are then sent to Listowel Printing Works to be professionally printed into good quality cards. Well done to all involved. A selection of the Christmas Cards are for sale and money raised from the cards goes towards Holy Family School for the Deaf Art Department for new stools for the Art classroom. Packet of Christmas Cards 10 for €7, Please contact J.Canning@holyfamilydeafschool.ie. If cards are to be posted out there be a charge for postage.
