TY News Bulletin 20


TY Admin - 21st March 2022


Remember your proper school uniform and coat every day except Tuesday when you have PE. Then it’s your TY sweatshirt and dark bottoms, no alternatives please. Also for all trips etc students should make sure they are wearing their TY sweatshirt. Please let me know if you have any queries regarding this.

Work experience

Going through the TY forms for work experience there are still a number of forms that haven’t been handed in. Make sure you have yours in by Tuesday as we will be starting to call employers. You should also have your details filled into the google sheet. Still a few students that I have neither form or details for. I will follow up on these students today.

The sign language course starts today from 3.20 - 4.30pm. It usually costs €15 for 5 weeks. That's presuming that everyone who has put their name down attends. I have 20 names at the minute. Sign Language 2022

John Paul Students

Remember you are off to Knock tomorrow with Ms O’Connor. She is happy for non John Paul TY students to go also as it is a Youth Day organised by The Derry Diocese and all are welcome. The cost of the bus is €10 and they will leave at 7.45am. Please let Ms O’Connor know if you would like to go today.

Tug of War

The inter schools tug of war competition takes place on the 4th of April in Clonmany. Mr Campbell tells me we have 2 boys, 3 girls and a mixed team. Please make sure you get your practice in before this during your PE class or possibly arrange with the PE department to get some practice in at lunch time. It will be as much about Brains as Brawn on the day so make sure you have your strategy and technique honed before we go.

Sports Leadership Course

We have been offered the opportunity to have a sports leadership course run in the school over two days in four hour blocks finishing with a fun mini soccer session for first years. Please add your name to the attached sheet if you think you might be interested. There will be more details to follow.
