Notice for 6th Year Students – Leaving Cert 2020

Dear Students,

Following today’s announcement about the LC and LCA being cancelled, we want to check in to make sure you are alright, staying safe and to assure you we will work hard over the next few weeks to ensure you get the grades you deserve following your studies in St Kevin’s CC.

We will be in touch next week with further details but for now we would offer you the following advice:

  1. Do not panic – we will be working hard to support you all the way
  2. Covid-19 is still here – you must continue to observe social distancing and not gather in groups, do not meet up, do not have parties – this is not the time to celebrate.
  3. We will have a graduation ceremony with you when we can – hopefully in September/October.
  4. Please ensure you have applied for college and have filled in all of the correct documents. Start your SUSI (college grant) application NOW if you haven’t already.
  5. Stay safe and mind yourselves – we are always here to help and support you.
  6. Please avoid contacting your teachers over the weekend – we have asked them not to reply as we work out the arrangements that need to be made.

If you would like to read the arrangements for calculating your LC grades, you can do so here – https://www.education.ie/en/Learners/Information/State-Examinations/a-guide-to-calculated-grades-for-leaving-certificate-students-2020.pdf

Thanks and stay safe,

Mr Barry, Mr Duffy & Ms Norris
