Dear Parent,


RE: Primary One: Starting School


As we come near to the end of Term 3 of the 2019/20 school year, we are already thinking ahead to the new school year. The transition from Nursery to Primary One is usually made easier by having an induction day before the end of June to enable children to meet their new teacher. 


If you, or your child, feel anxious leading up to the start of school in August, we would like to offer you an opportunity to come into school on Monday 24 August to meet Mrs McCorry.  School will be open from Thursday 20 August for you to phone and make an appointment.


Having attended Donacloney Primary School Nursery and/or having siblings already in the school, your child may already have an idea of what the main school is like.  You may feel that a visit is not needed.


School starts back on Wednesday 26 August 2020.  The school day ends at 1.30pm for children in Primary One in Term 1. 


If you have any questions or worries about your child starting school, please contact me.


Yours faithfully


L Nesbitt
