SEESAW AND ZOOM
Once again, well done to boys, parents and staff on a tremendous effort on SeeSaw and Zoom. I am keeping in touch with every class and looking at all the amazing work submitted. I am most impressed!
- All Zoom live lessons must take place in a living space (not a bedroom)
- A parent or guardian must be present in the room.
- Children must be fully and appropriately dressed (no need for school uniform!)
- Children should not be eating during a live lesson or have phones in hand.
- Children should be on mute, unless asked to unmute.
- Cameras must be turned on.
- No virtual backgrounds please.
- The children’s names should be on the screen name so that we know who we are admitting into the meeting (On Zoom, go to ‘participants’, then ‘more’, then ‘rename’.
- Sessions should not be recorded by children or parents on any device or shared. Hollypark BNS will not record the live session either.
- Any child not following the rules above may be removed from the live lesson.
- We have a limited supply of iPads for loan, if any family would benefit from an additional device please get in touch with the office. firstname.lastname@example.org
ZOOM TALENT SHOW

If you would like to share your talent with the school - singing, piano, guitar, violin, poetry reading, joke telling, cake making etc. please send Mr. O’Donovan an email through the contact section of the website FAO: Zoom Talent Show with your name and talent. Thank you to all the boys who have signed up already. I am looking forward to seeing all the various talents on show!
CORMAC’S WEEKLY BLOG
The life of an 11-year-old during this latest lock down – week 4
Another week of homeschooling finished. The days are flying by. Because of the weather, I didn’t get out to do much exercise this week. However, one day on one of our walks, we went to Monkstown. It was nice to look across at the sea and watch the waves crashing against the rocks. The highlight of my week had to be Friday, we made crepes online with our French teacher, Madame Claire. They took a long time to make but it was totally worth it because they tasted amazing! That evening we ordered in takeaway pizzas before doing our usual Friday night quiz, it was a good day!
The answer to last week’s riddle - what is always in front of you but you can’t see it? Your future. Another one for this week - A cowboy went to town on Friday, he stayed for 3 nights and came back on Friday. How could that be?
