Coronavirus: Covid-19 update
20th April 2021
A confirmed case of COVID-19 in Holy Family Secondary School has been notified to the Department of Public Health HSE.
A public health risk assessment has been undertaken and those deemed to be close contacts of the confirmed case have been contacted and advised accordingly. Your child is not identified as a close contact, your child does not need a test for Covid-19, they can continue to attend school, and no further actions are required at this time.
If your child develops any symptoms suggestive of Covid-19 infection (such as a cough, a fever, loss or change in sense of taste or smell), please do not send your child to school, contact your GP and begin restricting your child’s movements, as per public health advice. Restricted movement means avoiding contact with other people and social situations as much as possible. It is also sometimes called ‘self-quarantine’.
Further information on COVID-19 is available at: www.hse.ie.

Holy Family Secondary School Parents Association News Letter
We hope that you all had a very happy Christmas and New Year.
We are fortunate to have a great parents association here at Holy Family Secondary School and to have the full support of the staff in all our activities. The aims of our association are as follows:
- To promote active involvement of parents within the association
- To keep parents in touch with what is going on within the school and to offer opinions and ideas where needed
- To work on fundraising events. This year all money raised by the PA will go toward the school courtyard garden fund.
New parents are always welcome to come along to our meetings. Our next meeting is on Monday 3rd February at 7.30pm in the music room in school.
So far this year we have helped out at the night of music and song in September. We ran our annual Christmas raffle in December which is always a great success. We would like to take this opportunity to thank every one that supported us in any way at all. We had a stand at the open night for next Septembers incoming first years. Finally, we hosted a coffee morning for the teachers in December as a thank you gesture for all that they do for our girls.
In the next few months we will be doing a bag pack in Marks and Spencer and would appreciate as much support as possible.
Finally, could I remind you to go onto the school website and complete the survey on the Junior Cycle, it only takes a couple of minutes to do.
If you would like to get in touch with us you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wishing you all the very best for 2020,
Ciaran, Caoimhe, Karen and Angeline

Dear Parents and Guardians,
It’s the start of a new school year, therefore we would like to invite you to the AGM of the Parents Association of the Holy Family Secondary school. The AGM will be followed by a short Parents Association meeting.
As parents and guardians of the students attending the Holy Family Secondary School, you automatically belong to the Parents Association. The Association meets on the second Monday of each month at 7.30pm in the school.
Our role in the school
- Review and advice, as required, with the principal and staff on school policies.
- Fundraising for the benefit of the school, e.g. Christmas raffle and bag pack.
- Build effective partnership between school and the home.
- Maintain communication with the school and keep up to date with school news.
- We seek to support and promote the wellbeing of the school, the students and each other.
We are always looking for fresh ideas to bring to our school community and parents are one of our greatest resources. With that in mind we are always looking for new members to join our association. We would encourage you to come and get involved.
We look forward to seeing you.
