TY Admin - 18th March 2020

Work Experience

Students should not attend work experience until we return to school. If you have your ten week diary complete then you send it on by email otherwise this is something you can be working on. You have a copy of a blank diary in your emails

Gaisce & John Paul

Please do not attend any organised activities in relation to these courses. If you have been going to the chapel of adoration as part of your John Paul feel free to continue to do this if you wish, as long as it is available, keeping in mind HSE guidelines regarding hygiene and social distancing.

As regards Gaisce many of you are nearly finished this. Download the form on bronze award record sheet and fill in what activities you have been doing even if you cannot get it signed for now.

I have shared a creative writing course you can do which will count for a third of your award. Get out for exercise often and that will count for your physical activity. Hopefully that will be enough to get it.

Leadership for Life

Please remember that all TY students must put together a report on a local, national or global issue of their groups choice for leadership for life Session 2.

You should all be in your groups at this stage and have decided on your topic. If you haven’t got a group sorted then please get two or three of you on board to work on this together.

One person in the group should begin a google slides presentation and share it with the others in their group. Follow your workbooks to see the report titles and the process to follow.

Decide who will be responsible for what parts and put a deadline on when you all want to have each part complete.

Remember you need to contact someone who you can interview about it or get information from a relevant agency or body.

You also must make recommendations for how improvements could be made or what should be done going forward.

Creative Writing Course

Please find below a link to a Creative Writing course that you can complete which counts as a third of your Bronze Gaisce Award.

It is 13 videos you listen to and they set you challenges. You paste all your completed challenges into a word/google doc and send it to The Big Smoke Writing factory. The only email I have for them is Please also email me your completed work.

Each video takes 20 mins and then takes 20-40 mins to complete the challenge. The first video explains how it works.

This should be completed by everyone regardless of Gaisce as it is a certified course. For those that are doing Gaisce it may make up for the shortfall we will have with school closure.

Work for TY Religion

Please find attached a mindfulness colouring page which you can print out and colour to aid relaxation. Please pray or listen to some mellow music you enjoy while colouring in. Send me a photo of your masterpiece when you are finished.
