TY News Bulletin 13


TY Admin - 25th January

Google classroom

A few teachers have been in touch to say that some of you haven’t joined their google classroom. Can you check in your drive if there is a class you don’t have please and email the teacher for an invite. They probably have sent you one already but it may have got lost among the many emails.

Virtual work

Please join all live lessons. You are never going to have too much work so please do what is requested. If you cannot join due to illness, device availability or internet issues can you please email that teacher and let them know so they can allow for this when recording attendance. In most cases you will still be expected to do the work assigned but later that day instead. Some lessons will be pre recorded and have a deadline for completion, you must meet these deadlines as the teacher will not have time to keep going back to check after. They will have moved all to a whole new set of work from students.

Fetac IT

We are still waiting on the new course to start. Hopefully it will be ready to get going by the end of the week. In the meantime your teachers are sending you alternative IT work to complete.

Whole School Training Day

Remember that you have no school tomorrow Tuesday 26th as the teachers are all on a training day again. Hope its a good day. Get outside and get some fresh air. Send me your pics. I’ll be stuck at a computer all day!!

They will be sending weekly updates for participants from the 22nd of February online. All good for the CV. I am putting up a google classroom for you to express your interest in taking part. I need the names by Wednesday to send on to them. This is a certified course.
