This month our Newsletter is a special edition paying tribute to Mikey Kehoe RIP, a much loved and missed member of our school community.
I don’t think anyone who had the privilege of meeting Mikey, even briefly, will not remember him!
He was and will always be an exceptional individual, small in stature but with a huge personality.
We claim him as our own, a superhero who did not let his difficulties define him, a cherished member of the family of Fatima School.
We hope you will enjoy our memories of Mikey.

Dear Parents & Guardians,

Our Lady of Fatima School is so busy at the moment with all the activities taking place and there’s a great sense of wellbeing, energy and positivity!
World Earth Day generated huge interest in our Planet and was reflected in the beautiful displays and buzz in every classroom!
In addition to this, seeing the level of “working out” and the competitive element among each group there’s no doubt that our title should be “Fatima the Fittest School in Wexford”.
Well done everyone!

Mrs. Waters

Dear Parents & Guardians,

It has been a very difficult week for the whole of Our Lady of Fatima School Community.
Despite everyone’s best efforts Covid-19 has affected our school in a huge way.
There has been a lot of fear and worry in all your homes, but this too will pass.
Please understand that any actions we have taken have been in everyone’s best interest.
No one sets out to catch or spread the virus.
An affected person and family need support and understanding.
Continue to take all possible measures to lessen the chance of developing the illness and encourage your son/daughter to do likewise.
Have a peaceful, relaxing Easter.

Dear Parents & Guardians,
We are almost ready to reopen and hopefully all will go smoothly as we transition to 100% capacity.
This month’s Newsletter is purely dedicated to the necessary precautions we have in place to keep ourselves safe and to ensure our school is Covid-19 free and open.
Please look carefully at it, follow the links and watch the videos with your son or daughter.
If we work together and follow the advice all will be well!
Thank you for taking this seriously.
Stay safe,

Mrs. Waters

Dear Parents & Guardians,
We looked forward to the end of 2020 and the hope of better things to come in 2021.
Here we are in the first month of the new year and all is not as we had anticipated.
Out of nowhere, we got the devastating news that Mikey Kehoe in Middle 1 had passed away on 15th January. We will always remember him fondly. We pray that he is happy in heaven and we offer comfort to his parents in their loss of such a beautiful individual. Rest In Peace Mikey.
Boys and girls, parents and guardians, thank you for the great effort you are making in managing remote learning. Things are far from ideal at the moment. It is hard not to see your friends on the buses and in school. Try to make a routine for your day and do the best you can. We all miss school but we will be back in the classrooms soon.
Looking forward to our return!
