Well done to our students who have worked so hard this term, supported by parents and staff, and who completed a week of Christmas exams last week. Thanks to all staff who worked together during this very busy time at school.
CCA STUDENT NOMINATED FOR NATIONAL AWARD
We are delighted to announce that Rebekah Grant of 6th year has been nominated for an award by the Michael Sweetman Educational Trust. The trust, set up in memory of former Irish economist Michael Sweetman, awards a trip to Euroscola in Strasbourg, France, to 24 Leaving Certificate Applied students. The award winners get to spend a day in the shoes of an MEP; learning about the workings of the European Institutions from the inside, discussing democracy and fundamental rights with other teenagers from all over the EU and expressing their personal opinions on Europe in the chamber of the European Parliament.
5th YEAR PARENT-TEACHER-STUDENT AND MENTORING MEETING
We look forward to meeting all of our 5th year parents and guardians at the parent-teacher-student meeting on Thursday 29th January 2015. The meeting will be an opportunity for teachers, parents and students to focus on the goals to be achieved in 5th year, in order to prepare students for their final exam year. Parents and students will also have the opportunity to meet their child’s mentor teacher, who has been assigned to give students extra guidance and support during their Leaving Certificate preparation.
