Message for Exam Classes – February 22nd 2021

Please see a message below from Mr Barry & Mr Duffy for 3rd & 6th Year students (including 5th Year LCA)

Message to 6th Year Students – Monday February 22nd 2021

Good afternoon everyone.

We hope you are well and continuing with your school work. Please ensure you take appropriate breaks and look after yourselves too; this is important. We would like to encourage you all to keep up with your studies and attend your online classes. We know there is a lot of speculation on social media, online, in newspapers and radio. Please know that you should only listen to official communications from us here in school; either by looking at updates on our website, texts to parents/guardians from school or reading messages such as this one. There is a lot of discussion around returning to school, LC orals/practicals/written papers and calculated/accredited grades. NONE of this has been communicated officially to us by the DES yet and when it does we will hold a full year group assembly to let you know what you need to know. For now though, please continue to attend your online classes and do the best work that you can.

In the meantime, if you have questions please fill them in here https://tinyurl.com/3vs2uus3

Thanks,

Mr Barry & Mr Duffy

Message to 3rd Year Students – Monday February 22nd 2021

Good afternoon everyone.

We hope you are well and continuing with your school work. Please ensure you take appropriate breaks and look after yourselves too; this is important. We would like to encourage you all to keep up with your studies and attend your online classes. We know that the official Junior Cycle exams have been cancelled, but there will still be a school cert issued to each of you with your results. This is to acknowledge the hard work you have put in over the past 3 years. To explain what is happening, we will hold an online Assembly at 2.20pm on Tuesday with Ms Burke and your tutors to update you. For now, continue with your online classes and do the best work you can.

In the meantime, if you have questions please fill them in here https://tinyurl.com/3vs2uus3

Live Classes Timetable

From Monday January 25th students will have more online LIVE classes to support them through this Lockdown period.

Please spend some time going through this timetable with your son/daughter so they know exactly which classes will be live during the week.

They will also have periods when they don’t have live classes – they should use these times to keep up with their study, do homework and catch up on any work they are not up to date with.

It is important that all students attend all classes and keep up with their work as much as possible.

3rd and 6th year students may end up using Calculated Grades again this year; they need to keep up with their work and the best way to do this is to attend their live classes.

All live classes are done through the Microsoft TEAMS App

We will also hold a Live DEMO to support parents with Online Classes at 4pm on Monday January 25th to help you to support your child with Remote Learning. To sign up for this please click here.

The Live Classes Timetable can be found here – Live Classes Timetable Website
