Learning from Home - Friday Bulletins
Dear TY Students,
These are certainly strange and unsettling times and we are all learning how to function in this new reality. We hope you are all keeping well both physically and mentally.
Nobody really knows when school will resume again, and so it is important to create a home routine and habit that works for everyone; students, parents and teachers.
Your core subject teachers have already made contact with you and will be emailing regularly with work assignments and tasks, it is important you access your school email and go to the 'microsoft teams' section on a daily basis for this reason. We have communicated with these core subject teachers and many have asked that you respond to these emails so that they know you are 'on board', a simple 👍 will do.
We, your year heads, will email all TYs every Friday. This 'Friday Bulletin' will be similar to a 'Tuesday Lecture' notices slot. It will contain some specific TY information and will contain some general school notices. There are some TY subjects, activities, calendar dates and events that we will need to plan and communicate in the weeks ahead; Projects, portfolio interviews, charity activities, maybe even end of year logistics. However, for now, we will concentrate upon core subject 'teaching and learning'.
I am sure you all watched or have seen An Taoiseach Varadkar on Tuesday night; he appealed to all of us 'to do our part' in these extraordinary times. We would like to echo those sentiments. Throughout this year so far and in a range of activities, we have known you to be incredibly creative, mature, caring and fun-loving young adults. Please continue to be so in all that you do during these weeks; think of others in your home or extended family and see what you can do to help.
Mr Hickmott, Ms Moran and Ms Costigan
