Week 10

Week 10 – Friday 13th November 2020

Another busy and fast week. Pupils are working very hard in the classroom and pressure is on Exam Year groups, especially those pupils in Year 11 Double Award and Year 12 Single Award who will sit their GCSE Science Modular Exams on 23 & 24 November respectively.

It was great to see that many of our Extended Schools Activities commenced this week, eg, Early Bird in the Library, Ceramics Club and Junk Kouture.  There are also many more to start next week – so boys and girls, check out the different activities with your Form Teachers.  

Other action activities at the moment are Hurling, Camogie, and instrumental tuition has finally restarted – music to my ears!

Year 8 thoroughly enjoyed their Road Safety / Translink Health & Safety Programme on Tuesday. I can’t say the same for yesterday however, when they received their Flu Immunisations.  

I hope you have also read the very favourable comments on our Facebook page with regard to Year 8 Pastoral meetings. We truly appreciate the honesty and support of our parents/guardians.  Your support ensures that our high standards are maintained.

This evening, many of you may watch the annual Children in Need programme.  Truth be told, there are many children within our own community, who are in need.  We are extremely grateful for donations received this week, to distribute to our school community.  Staff were working hard during break time today with the Food Share initiative and this afternoon, our Canteen ladies delighted in providing Food Parcels to our Free School Meals children who unfortunately cannot attend school due to Covid-19.  Well done Jessica and your Team!.

I received a huge number of letters this morning – all from 8 LLE.  The pupils decided to write to me to let me know how well they have settled in to the College.  I am so looking forward to reading them over the weekend and hopefully I’ll get a chance to reply to them all very soon.  

Bye for now. Keep yourselves and your loved ones safe at all times.
