Dear Parents / Guardians

I am writing to you all in relation to the potential disruption caused in Belfast on Friday 9th May because of activity related to the Giro d’Italia cycle event

We have been informed by PSNI, the Belfast Education and Library Board, the Department of Education and CCEA that there is going to be widespread traffic disruption and road closures.  I wish to inform Parents that Aquinas Diocesan Grammar School will close at 12.30pm Friday 9th May 2014.

The only exception will be for those students sitting GCSE, AS or A2 external examinations for which particular arrangements have been established

This arrangement will allow buses to arrive and pupils to make their way home before the roads in and around Belfast are closed for the evening time trials. Lunch will be available as normal.


Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.


Yours sincerely

Mr Barry Kelly
