In this section of the website, I will keep you updated on recent developments here in the school.
A very Happy New Year to everyone, I hope 2019 is a peaceful and happy one for us all.
As we return from our Christmas holidays, we start a fresh new year with the usual buzz of school life. First years are getting well settled and once again, I encourage parents to make sure your daughter is getting involved in after school activities.
It is now an extremely busy time in school—mock exams, preparing for orals, practical’s, completing projects and CBA’s etc. A lot of hard work starts to come together; students are making choices re Senior Cycle and Transition Year, and 2nd year options. As well as this we will mark LGBTI week and Catholic Schools week between now and mid-term.
Congratulations to all of the students who have represented Presentation Secondary Wexford in so many sporting activities, debating, competitions in the last few weeks and since the start of the year
It also is chance to remind parents and students, of the vast amount of extra-curricular activities that are available here in Presentation Wexford, from camogie, Gaelic Football, Basketball, Badminton, Soccer, Debating, Athletics, Deep-green, Games Club, Walking Club, Couch to 5K to the Feminist Society there is something for everyone on offer.
Currently our 3rd and 6th years are busy preparing for the Pre Leaving & Junior Cycle examinations, we wish them all the very best, the hard work will pay off. Mock examinations are a very important learning experience for students regarding time management and how to read questions carefully as these are the two main pitfalls experienced. Please see letter below in relation to the mocks.
There is also a very excited group of Transition years who will be heading to Co Louth for their activity holiday, and a further 20 students will travel to Italy to hit the slopes in the next few weeks.
There will be an important information night on Leaving Cert subject choice for students going into 5th year next year on Wednesday the 9th Jan at 7pm in the Concert Hall.
We will also welcome all of our incoming 1st years who will be joining the school in September 2019 along with their Parents/Guardians for an information night on Tuesday the 22nd January.
• Sign in from 5.45pm
• Tour of school
• Principals Address at 6.30pm
We look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday the 22nd.
A reminder to 5th and 1st year parents that Parent Teacher meetings will be held for 5th years on Wednesday the 16th January and for first years on Monday the 28th January. Research shows that students learn more, have higher grades, and have better school attendance when parents/guardians are involved in their education. That is why attending parent-teacher meetings is so important: it is a great way for parents to become involved and stay involved throughout the school year. Parent-Teacher meetings are a good way to meet your child’s teachers and learn about your child’s academic performance, as well as the teacher’s expectations. If you know what is expected in the classroom, you can more easily address any issue that comes up as your child moves through the school year.
By attending these meetings, you also send a positive message to your child that school is important. Keep in mind that you are an equal partner at the meeting. If you have questions or observations, the meeting is a good time to share them with the teacher. Do not forget to share what you know about your child. Your information helps the teacher better understand and teach your child.
I wish all students, staff & parents every best wish for the half term ahead.
