As we approach the Christmas holidays, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone in our school community for the tremendous work that has been done since September to keep those in our school safe.
Please find attached an open letter from Dr Tony Holohan to parents/guardians of school children which encourages everyone to continue working together, limit social contacts and maintain the social distancing practices over the Christmas period.
I wish you all a happy, healthy, and relaxing Christmas break with your families,
Eimear O Rourke
We invite you to participate in a virtual walk or run in aid of the Holy Family School for the Deaf. All funds raised will go towards funding Chromebooks for students and teachers and achieving our goal of becoming a Digital School of Distinction.

Message from Fr. Paddy and the Board of management
Normally at this time we would be looking forward to the Easter break, but as we know we are living in very unusual times.
Firstly, I hope you are all keeping safe and that adapting to our new way of living has not been too traumatic for you and your families.
Secondly, on behalf of the Board of Management I want to say a very sincere ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone, for the commitment, dedication and the hard work that is going on every day and also for the way in which pupils, teachers, school staff and families have adapted to using new technology and are cooperating together in a spirit of care and concern for the benefit of all.
Our school has as its patron the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. This little family had, in their own time, to face great difficulties, but with love, concern and through supporting one another they overcame those difficulties. May I wish you all every blessing at this very special time of the year when we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I am attaching a prayer to the Holy Family we might pray each day:
Jesus, Mary and Joseph. we offer you our day.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, guide us at work and play.
Help us to love one another, to keep each other safe.
May we follow your example in all we do and say
Jesus, Mary and Joseph
We offer you our day. Amen
