With the holidays here, we at Presentation Secondary School Warrenmount want to thank all the students who engaged so well in all the new forms and styles of learning in these strange times. It really is incredibly impressive and you should all be so proud of yourselves. Similarly, we want to thank all of the staff who have adapted, created and engaged with all of the students in such a dedicated and innovative way. Our commitment as a whole school is amazing!
Over the Easter Holidays, teachers and staff will not be as readily available over Teams and Chat. Staff and students alike all deserve a holiday after the huge effort we have all put in over the last three weeks. However, we want to offer a list of resources should you need an extra bit of support over the next 2 weeks.
