 North Presentation Primary School 

We have worked so hard these past few months to keep your children, and our whole school community, safe, happy and well. We are very proud of how well we have done in this as a school and are so grateful to you all for your wonderful part in this. How lucky we are here in North Pres. to have such amazing parents involved in our school. We truly believe that and thank you for it!

.Please keep up the good work. 

  • Please stay away from other people as much as possible.
  • Do not visit others houses and do not let them visit yours.
  • Keep up the handwashing, sanitizing and cough or sneeze etiquette.
  • Do not travel out of Cork but if you have done this remember to isolate or quarantine when you return.

You have relied on us since August to protect your beautiful precious children and keep them safe. We have done our very best to do this.

The staff have relied on myself and school management to protect and keep them safe and I am doing my very best to do that.

I have relied on staff to follow all procedures and guidelines both in school and in their private lives to keep themselves and your children safe and they are doing their very best to do that.


Keep up the good work and let’s all keep ourselves and our children safe!
