Congratulations to Eabha McNally who has been awarded First Place in the Junior Cycle Art
Category of the Mental Health Ireland Art Competition 2020/21. This years’ theme was
“Reflecting on How I’ve Grown”. Eabha used primary source objects and explored typography
in her sketchbook before creating this wonderful artwork. Congratulations Eabha and well
done to all our students who worked hard on their entry. Also, thanks to Ms Byrne for her
encouragement and advice.
Congratulations to Ruby and Lily Crocker-Dunne and family who are walking/cycling the distance to Palestine in 100 days to support a charity called Edukid. Edukid works to support students’ education in Cambodia, Palestine, and Uganda. 260 million children* worldwide cannot access school for various reasons such as poverty, gender, war, disability, insufficient teachers or government funding.
Message to 6th Years posted 01/02/21:
Good morning everybody! I hope you are all well. 1st Day of Spring to-day. Remember Spring is the season of new beginnings.
To achieve success in your day, follow the simple 5 T plan:
1. Turn Up – look at your classes for the day and join on time. Have an A4 pad and materials ready for each class.
2. Tune in – actively listen in Live Classes. Have water beside you to keep your brain hydrated.
3. Talk – answer questions, ask questions. Use Chat/Email/Mic to keep in contact with your teachers. Communication is key!
4. Tasks – prioritise! What do you need to get done to-day?? When can you do it? When are Assignments due? Make a list for the day of things that have to be completed. Do the one with the closest deadline. Look at your Live class timetable & work around it.
5. Tutors – reach out if you are worried or need a bit of encouragement. Your tutor is there for you!
