Coláiste na hInse Re-opens
Coláiste na hInse re-opened to our Fifth Year, Sixth Year and an Cuan students over the last month. It has been great to welcome all of students back into the building, and there is great excitement ahead of the planned return of all students on April 12th. All First, Second, Third and Idirbliain students will be posted out a HSE Covid-19 Declaration Form over the Easter break and they must bring this with them on April 12th. Failure to bring the form will result in the student being sent home for it. All students must wear a facemask and food is to be eaten outside the school buildings.
Thank you to all students and parents for their help and support throughout the period of online learning.
