Message from Consultant Respiratory Paediatrician at Cork University Hospital .

“I hope you all stay safe during this difficult time. The children will get through this no problem. Paediatric hospitals are empty in Italy at present after 3 weeks of school closure as the usual viruses stopped circulating.  Remember  with corona children are vectors  not victims.  In most epidemics young children are the transmitters.

Therefore  for school closure to be effective it’s really important that the kids aren’t mixing with other kids while out of school. They will give it to each other silently pass it on to our loved ones. What we do now will contribute to how this develops in cork . Avoid situations that the children will interact.

If the community respond to this it will shut it down more than anything we do in hospital . From my experiences in the hospital this last week I would say that corona virus is closer to all of us than we realise  and the degrees of separation for all of us is getting narrower . I’m not that good at social media but if this could be shared as widely as possible with parents in Cork it will help.

This messsge needs to go viral to stop the virus “.


and School Closure

Here at Nagle Rice, we intend for teaching and learning to continue, and work is being assigned to students and monitored by their teachers through Google Classrooms and their school emails.  We would ask that parents / guardians ensure this work is completed at home by the students.

If any student has issues logging into their school email, contact us at emails@nrss.ie

Any other school queries, contact principal@nrss.ie

Letter to Parents / Guardians: 12 March 2020 re: school closure.
