Arrangements for week beginning Monday, May 29th

The school has experienced serious issues with its computer system since last Monday, May 22nd. Because of this, this week's scheduled tests and block classes cannot go ahead as planned.

Instead, the following arrangements will apply:

  • 3rd Year students will follow their normal timetable from Monday morning until lunchtime on Thursday instead of Block Classes.
  • 6th Year students will follow their normal timetable from Monday morning until lunchtime on Thursday instead of Block Classes. Study facilities will be provided for other class times.
  • 1st, 2nd and 5th Year classes will follow their normal timetable from Monday morning until lunchtime on Thursday.  They will have classroom-based tests, during some of these classes. Tests may be for a single class period or double class period or for two single class periods. Students will be given details of this on Monday.
  • 6.LCA and 5.LCA students will have separate arrangements. You will be informed of these on Monday.
  • Transition Year students will attend school for mornings only on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, following the normal timetable. There will be classroom-based tests in some subjects only.
  • There will be no classes or tests for students on Friday. This is a staff-only day.
  • The TY Parents’ Night will go ahead, as planned, on Wednesday night.
  • Students will be issued with Summer Reports, as in other years.

I regret that these changes have had to be made at such short notice, and your support in these exceptional circumstances will be greatly appreciated.

John Murphy, Principal.
