Update letter to parents May 12th

11th May 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian

We are in a period of great uncertainty such as the world has not previously experienced. We have all been affected in some way by social isolation measures. We are also conscious that no can foresee a time when life will return to ‘normal’ again.

We at McEgan College are here to provide your children with the best education that current conditions will allow. Our ethos is to care equally for all our students. With that in mind we just want to remind you that we will continue to provide online classes during normal school hours and we encourage all students to engage with these online classes.

These classes provide an opportunity for students to contact their classmates and teachers. They are a relaxed environment where we can all keep in touch, learn and interact as a group which is important in this challenging environment.

In the light of recent decisions from the Department of Education we would encourage children to try to attempt as much homework as possible because in the future it may just be possible that this may form the basis upon which grades are calculated, as has happened this year with Leaving Cert and Junior Cert students.

Please feel free to contact me if you require any further assistance.

Kind regards,


Patricia Lynam
