Dept of Ed Statement on Closure

12th March 2020 – 1.00p.m.

As you are probably aware the school has been instructed to close from 6pm this evening. We are currently working on arrangements for the duration of the closure and will keep you all informed via the school app and website on our plans, when finalised later today.  Many thanks for your understanding and co-operation at this time,


As the Dept. of Education & Skills has talked about the possibility of schools closing at some point in the future as a result of the spread of the Covid-19 Coronavirus, we are endeavouring to put in place contingency plans should this occur. As part of the preparation we have asked students to take their books home from their lockers before the weekend. We will be holding assemblies with all year groups on Thursday and Friday to further explain our contingency/continuity plans. We will keep students and their parents/guardians posted in the event that we are instructed by the Department to close. Just to confirm Pres Bray REMAINS OPEN for now, unless instructed to do otherwise by the Department/HSE
