Further to ‘breathing breaks‘…
….RTÉ’s Today with Sarah McInerney:
Principal of Coláiste Bríde in Clondalkin in Dublin Marie-Thérèse Kilmartin said physical distancing, movement breaks for pupils and staff and well-ventilated classrooms are “vital”.
She said her school is considering whether to allow students to use their lockers, because if they are in use students will each be responsible for wiping down the “high-touch” surfaces.
Ms Kilmartin said the school plans to spend time re-educating students on the symptoms of Covid-19, the use of face coverings, and good hand hygiene and coughing and sneezing etiquette.
She urged parents to support teachers in ensuring children and young people “come back to becoming aware of their physical distance with others“.
Principal of Scoil Naomh Bríd in Ballyconnell, Co Cavan, Terence Reynolds explained that his school will implement staggered lunch breaks for students and staff, “where half will be on the yard and half of the staff will be in the staff room,” he said.
