I wanted to take this opportunity to thank

you for all your support and to say what a

wonderful year we have had.

 As I am sure you will all agree, the Creative Arts are so

important for Children’s confidence as well as their social development particularly

at this time and the atmosphere in our classes has been magical!

A big congratulations to all our Students who took their Speech and Drama Examinations earlier this year! Not only did you achieve marvelous results, but the comments our Leinster School of Music and Drama Examiner made were so positive. She highlighted the high standard of speech and communication skills, as well as the high-quality performances she saw from our Happy Days Students. A Big Well done! Also a special mention to all those who received medals! The whole Happy Days team are so proud!

As you will understand our venues where we hold our classes are in a School setting. So we are planning to recommence our classes in mid-September, when schools are settled in. This will give Students the opportunity to be comfortable with the new environment and new safety guidelines. 

We will have our COVID safety policies in place and all staff will have trained and be certified in best hygiene practices which follow HSE Guidelines, to ensure the safety of our Students, Families and ourselves as Teachers. 

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support during this time. Be reassured, any classes missed will be made up when we are back next term. We are really looking forward to getting back and our Happy Days Teachers are busy making new plans to ensure a fun, creative and safe year ahead.  Have a lovely summer and keep safe! 

Regards, Grainne
