Abbeyfeale College

In the run up to Christmas 2020, a number of events occurred in the school. 

  • Transition Year students made a presentation to members of Sodexo staff as a show of appreciation for their efforts in providing a safe school environment during the past academic term.
  • First Year German  Students  presented their Christmas boots which  they painted and decorated themselves. According to German tradition on the 6th of December Saint  Nicholas fills the childrens'  boots and shoes with sweets if they have been good during the year. Children who have not been  good receive a lump of coal which is left by "Knecht Ruprecht".
  • Others in the school collected food donations from students and teachers which allowed them to make over 50 food hampers which were donated between Abbeyfeale and Athea St. Vincent de Paul Food Appeal. 
  • While in 1st and 2nd year Wood Technology, students made a number of Festive pieces.

Re: Confirmed case of COVID-19 at Coláiste Íde agus Iosef

 

A confirmed case of COVID-19 in your child’s school, Coláiste Íde agus Iosef, has been notified to the Department of Public Health HSE Mid-West.

A public health risk assessment has been undertaken and the parents of any children deemed to be close contacts of the confirmed case will be contacted and advised accordingly. If your child is not identified as a close contact, your child does not need a test for COVID-19, they can continue to attend school, and no further actions are required at this time.

If your child develops any symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 infection (such as a cough, a fever, shortness of breath, loss or change in sense of taste or smell), please do not send your child to school, isolate your child and contact your GP. If your GP considers COVID-19 a possibility and refers your child for a swab, others in the household must then restrict their movements until the swab result is available.
