TY Admin Week 27


TY Admin - 27th April 2020

Morning All,

I hope you and your families are all keeping well and doing your best to make the most of this lockdown. Most of you are working hard on google classroom and have been doing the best you can in these circumstances, and this is all the school expects. There are a number of TY who have provided little or no work over the past six weeks. Their parents will be contacted today to check in with them and see what the reason is for the non engagement. Please let me know if there is anything we can do to facilitate you getting on with the work.

Your teachers are sending assignments from now on that will be used to give you your final 10 credits for the last term. Please ensure you get this work done.

Leadership for Life projects are due for me today. This is an extended date. If your own teacher has given you a different date then go with them and send to their google classroom.

Work experience diaries are now overdue for a number of students. This will have a negative effect on your final result.

Fetac graphics work has been rolled out for all TY IT students . My class has their first piece of work due for tomorrow Tuesday 28th. Hopefully this will help us get ready for the graphics exam which I’m not sure we will be able to run until September but we are looking into this.

Gaisce is due this Friday 1st May for all TY. Every student should have downloaded last week’s record Sheet if they hadn’t already done so and have filled in their physical and community parts. Leave the extra weeks and the personal skill for your IT teacher to verify. Please catch up this week if there is anything extra you need to be doing and get your parents to sign off on it. Don’t worry if you have a different activity entered online to what you have actually done. Refer to last week's admin for ideas on what you can include and Gaisce facebook. Please upload a photo of your sheet and any photographs of the work you have done to the google classroom.

Many of you may have seen the information I sent last week about the TY transmission course. This is normally a fee paying certified course but is being offered free during lockdown. Every school is given a slot to complete the course in and ours starts tomorrow. I will set up a google classroom this morning to give details. Please make a comment there if you would like to complete the course. I highly recommend it.

Your Portfolio for the end of year assessment will be due Friday 8th of May. Please keep working on this. Details on how you will submit it will be given next week.

Finally I would like to congratulate Molly, Rory and Andreea on getting through to the All Ireland semi final of the NIFTE enterprise competition. Excellent work. Delighted for you all. Well done to Ms McBride too on helping you with this.
