Update: Tuesday 24 March 2020
Reopening Date: We have just been informed that the closure order for all Irish schools (including English language schools) is now being extended until 19th April 2020. It is possible that this date may need to be extended again. All further news and updates relating to this closure, will be posted on this page.
Update: Monday 23 March 2020
We understand that everyone is experiencing extremely difficult circumstances now due to the Covid-19 virus situation. Our lives have been turned upside down and we are worried about our future. Our hearts and thoughts are with you at this very difficult time.
During this last week, we have been inundated by requests for assistance from students already attending a course and others soon to arrive. Many flights were cancelled and this resulted in stranded students requiring emergency assistance with accommodation. We have been working long hours every day to sort out the problems and thankfully we now feel that we are bringing the situation under control. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide support and assistance to the remaining students as best we can.
Ongoing Issues: Reopening Date
We are constantly asked when the school will re-open and if we have more information from the Irish Government. At this moment (Monday 23rd March 2020) we have not received any new information from the Irish authorities. We are not in a position to say exactly when we will be allowed to reopen. The Covid-19 situation is changing daily, it is likely that the initial two week closure will be extended past 29th March 2020.
Ongoing Issues: Digital learning Package
We are now contacting the enrolled students affected by this closure order to give them access to a New Digital Learning Platform. The new learning platform is a self study and diagnostic system. If you are currently enrolled and were attending classes at Horner School, you will be contacted by our Director of Studies, to give you login access to this new online system. We are working on this now as I speak.
We will share more detailed information with you as these events unfold and as we receive further updates from the government.
In the meantime, stay safe and stay well.
The Horner School Team.
