Schools across the country finally have a roadmap from the Government on how they should reopen, having been closed since March due to the pandemic.
Some countries like Switzerland were able to open their schools as early as May.
So what is it like to teach in a reopened school, and what can our own secondary school students expect come September?
Liam Printer, originally from Westport in Co. Mayo, is a secondary school teacher in Switzerland and host of The Motivated Classroom podcast. He joined us to give an insight into the situation there.
We also spoke to Michelle O'Kelly, principal of of Mercy Secondary School in Inchicore, about her concerns ahead of reopening.
