As we enter the final term post Easter, our focus here in the school is on supporting our 6th year students who are preparing for the State Examinations, building on the learning experiences so for this year, preparing for end of year awards ceremonies, graduations and celebrations of achievement. Our focus will also turn to welcoming back all of our other year groups to the school.
Our 6th years are now busy preparing for their Orals, practical’s & completion of coursework. I sincerely thank our teachers who will be assisting with these examinations and practicals. We wish them all every success.
It has been wonderful to have our 5th & 6th years back in the building and our dedicated staff. It has been a juggling act for our staff mixing in school learning with On-line Learning for all other year groups. Engagement of students online has been excellent but we look forward to seeing them in person after the Easter holidays.
I would like to compliment our students, staff and indeed parents on the fantastic dedication & commitment that has gone on every day for the past few months both in our school and online. Online Learning in our school has been done so well, but it is not the same as having the students physically in the building
The final term shall be busy with assignments, assessments, end of year celebrations, CBAs, graduations, awards, summer exams and reports – we certainly have lots to keep us busy!
Finally, a massive thank you to the whole school community for the vast amounts of commitment, understanding & goodwill that has been shown to all of us over the last few months. It has not been an easy few months but working together, we have got to the Easter holidays.
I ask you all, Parents/Guardians/ Students to work with us to encourage everyone to follow all guidelines set out by NPHET not only in school but outside school as well. We all have a responsibility to follow all HSE advice, protocols and exercise caution, calm and consistent messaging. We have a duty of care to all in our school and those outside of our school.
Everyone has responsibility together; we are all in this together and need your support to encourage all of our students to follow the guidelines.
Wishing all our school community & the wider community a healthy and relaxing midterm break.
