PE KIT ORDERS FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2020-21

Some parents have expressed an interest in purchasing the school PE kit for next year. Mrs Wade has organised with the kit company to open an online shop where parents can order, purchase and have the kit delivered to their house.
This is only one option, parents who do not want to order at the minute can purchase a kit at a later date when things become more clear or when their child starts school.
Below is the link to the online shop and the password, you must use capital letters.
 
The store is now open and will remain open until late April -

The compulsory items are:
Boys: Yellow PE top, boys black shorts and MHS socks
Girls: Black PE top, girls black shorts and MHS socks

Goodbye To Our Year 14

It was an incredibly poignant day yesterday as we had to say goodbye to our Year 14 much sooner than we would have liked. They are, and always have been, an incredibly hard working and committed year group and we will miss them greatly. We wish them every success for their future and hope that they keep in touch and let us know how they are getting on. We managed to grab one last picture of some of them - thanks Mrs Lamont. Goodbye and good luck.

Supervised Study Area

Dear Parents/Guardians,

In line with guidance from the Minister of Education, Peter Weir MLA, there will be a supervised study area available from Monday 23rd March from 9.00am - 3.00pm for those pupils in Years 8 - 10 who are the children of key workers. Key workers are defined as those who are essential to maintaining public services during the COVID-19 response, who without this supervised school service, would have to stay at home to supervise their children.

Please be aware that school will not operate as a 'normal' school day but more so as a supervision facility as we may have a significant reduction in staffing and this may worsen over time. Staff will not be teaching specific classes as they must also be available to provide online/remote learning to pupils staying at home. More details will follow on the structure of the day and other necessary arrangements.

In order for us to plan for this we would ask any parent who is a key worker and wishes to avail of this facility to contact the school office before 3.00 pm today and indicate which days next week that they would like their child(ren) to attend.

We would like to thank all the parents for their continued support in these challenging times and in particular extend our gratitude and thanks to those members of the community who are working to protect us all.

Please share this information if you can.

Kind Regards,

Stephen Fleming, Acting Principal
