Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we watched the news unfold last night, we can only imagine the roller-coaster of emotions being experienced by our parents and P7 pupils preparing for the AQE examinations.
The January examinations that were cancelled yesterday morning have now been replaced with one date where pupils can sit one paper, subject to the public health situation within Northern Ireland at that time.
The date that has been scheduled for pupils to sit this one paper is now Saturday 27th February 2021.
We know that many of our P7 families will have experienced a very emotional day yesterday, and we are here for you all.
Our P7 Teachers will contact their AQE families directly this week to give you our support, and allow you an opportunity to talk things through, regarding your child's well-being, and next steps specifically, as we appreciate there will be a mixture of emotions, thoughts and questions that you may have moving forwards.
Our love to our pupils and their families in P7, as well in every year group throughout our school and nursery.
This uncertainty and ever-changing landscape has been so hard to manage for you as parents, as you support your children at home, and care for their emotional well-being first and foremost, when you yourself are left so unsure as to what will happen next.
As always in Brooklands, we will support each other through the days and weeks ahead, until we come through this, and can be back together again in school once more.
Please join us via our 'Whole-School Home-Learning' Page for our vitally important assemblies throughout this time, which are a key way in which we can stay together, whilst apart.
With love and thanks to all of our families at this time.
Mr Armstrong and Mrs Smart
On behalf of all of the Staff of Brooklands
