School Reopening 2020

We hope that your families are keeping safe and your boys are settling back into school.

The Board of Management, School Leadership, School’s Covid Response Team and Staff of Hollypark BNS have been working on measures to ensure a safe and happy return for our boys. We understand how difficult this closure has been on our pupils and your families. We are doing everything we can to allow us to open our school safely and to remain open, following all the advice and guidelines issued by the HSE and the Department of Education and Skills.

Please Read the Important Opening Information

We are currently living in exceptional circumstances. We have to work together to tackle the virus. It is a shared responsibility to manage it effectively. In order for us to successfully remain open, we will need the highest possible level of cooperation from you, the parents. We have made many changes not least on how people enter and exit the school grounds and how parents and teachers can communicate. By working together as a whole school community and by following the new rules, we will be able to remain open with confidence and to keep life in school as happy and normal as possible for our boys. 

As part of our safe return policy, we would like to bring parents’ attention to the matter of foreign travel. Pupils who have travelled outside Ireland, to a country not on the Green List, will not be permitted to enter for 14 days after their return. This measure is being taken to ensure the safety of school staff, pupils and families. 

Similarly, all after-school activities are postponed pending a review of procedures by the Board of Management before October midterm break. This is to avoid crossover of class bubbles and pods. We ask that you inform childminders/childcare facilities of these new arrangements, as necessary. 

There will be a whole school community focus on wellbeing throughout September to support all pupils, families and staff in their return to school. We are delighted to welcome everyone back to Hollypark BNS and are looking forward to having a wonderful year ahead. 

Kind regards

Barry O’Donovan,

Séamus Clancy 
Chairperson, Board of Management 


We look forward to helping you arrange your visit to Holly Park
to discuss your son’s learning adventure.
