Covid-19 school related information
Student's temperature will be checked automatically every day when entering and leaving the school building.

 At the school entrance students will be asked to clean their hands with sanitizer and shoes will also be disinfected.

 There will be signs around the school explaining the one-way system for using the stairwells and corridors.

 The use of a mask is currently not mandatory in Ireland. However, if the safety distance of two metres cannot be guaranteed we ask our students to come with their own mask and wear it in the school. On the terraces and patio it can be taken off while keeping the safety distance.

 The school staff will be wearing a mask when in contact with students. Teachers are allowed to take off the mask during lessons respecting the 2 metres safety distance guideline.

 Hand sanitizers will be available in the school area. Surface disinfectant product will be available in school's toilets.

 The school will be intensively cleaned and disinfected every day. Certain areas such as toilets, railings, door knobs ....will be cleaned and disinfected several times per day. Depending on the size of the classroom each class will have max. 15 students in order to respect a minimum distance of 1.50 metres between each participant.


The weekly schedule might be adapted if needed and starting and break times can be staggered to avoid many students moving around the corridors or in the common areas of the school at the same time. Teachers will advise of break times on arrival.   The weekly activity program will still be organized in reduced groups focusing mainly on open air activities.  Kilkenny offers many opportunities for this kind of activities.   Host families will follow all government guidelines on social distancing and will ensure common areas are maintained to a high degree of cleanliness.
