As many Parents, Guardians & members of our local community will know at this stage, Scoil Mhuire suffered some roof damage today as a result of the very high winds brought by Storm Ophelia. Our school plan, when events like this occur, has been put in place. We have a building team on standby and they will begin work on the roof as soon as the winds die down. They will make the roof safe in preparation for more significant repairs. Fortunately, no one was injured today and that is the most important thing. If possible, we will re-open for pupils on Wednesday. We will ensure to keep our Parents & Guardians up to date via text & our school website as soon as we have definitive news. We ask that you be patient with us as it may be later tomorrow before we can confirm that we will re-open on Wednesday. We hope that you and your families are safe and well and we thank you for all the kind messages of support that we received today.
