Dear Parent / Carer,
As you will be aware the NI Executive has announced that the mid term break for schools and other education settings will be extended from Monday 19th October to Friday 30th October (inclusive).
In a letter to schools, the Education Minister, Mr. Peter Weir, has stated that –
“Education settings will be closed to all pupils during these two weeks including for vulnerable children and children of key workers. Schools and other settings will reopen on Monday, 2 November.
As this is an extension of the half-term break, it is not intended to be used for remote learning”.
Castle Tower has provided a safe learning environment for all of our children and young people and we are disappointed that our term has been cut short with very little notice. However, we respect the NI Executive’s decision and support all measures that have been put in place to protect our community.
We look forward to welcoming our pupils back to school in the new term and thank all of you for your continued support and cooperation at this time.
