GRMA

Posted in Category(ies):  News
This Friday, 11th of December 2020, we are asking you to pause and say #GRMA to everyone in the school community who have worked to keep schools safe since they have reopened.

This includes Students, Teachers, Principals, Parents, SNA’s, Caretakers, Bus Drivers and everyone in between!

We want to celebrate the enormous work that all members of the school community have done since they reopened this year. 

Here is video of collective acknowledgement from Ireland's political leaders, media and sports personalities.

Firsty Year 'Rooted in Reading' Passports Initiative

Posted in Category(ies):  News

 

1st Year ‘Rooted in Reading’ Passports Initiative 

All first year students will receive their ‘Reading Passports’ this week to encourage our student’s uptake of reading for enjoyment. We believe that reading for enjoyment reduces stress, improves analytical thinking, boosts vocabulary, writing skills and develops increased memory skills. 

Each week, 1st years have the opportunity in English class to participate in ‘Drop Everything and Read’ with a book from home. Students will complete a number of novels between school and home this year. Upon completion, they will receive a ‘passport stamp’ from their English teacher and record the book in their ‘Reading Passports’. Prizes and certificates will be awarded to successful readers in May 2020. With your encouragement and support, we hope to further build a culture of reading in our school community.

3rd Year Classroom Based Assessments

Posted in Category(ies):  Events

November 2020

 

 

 

RE: Revised arrangements for the completion of Classroom Based Assessments (CBAs) for the cohort of students 2018 – 2021 (students in 3rd Year in 2020/2021)

 

 

Dear Parent,

Students experienced a disrupted period of learning in 2019/20 because of school closures introduced to curtail the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the best efforts of teachers and schools to mitigate the effects of disrupted schooling, the learning experience of students varied.

As a result students only need to complete one CBA in each subject.

Please see attached the schedule of CBA’s for our school. You will see that some were completed last year ( Business/ Science) and others are in progress.

Please discuss the timetable with your son/daughter to ensure that they are staying up to date with all the research and projects.

Should you have any questions about the CBA’s please contact us at Juniorcycle@stciaranscs.ie

 

Kind regards,

Ms. Mannix & Mr. O’Sullivan

JCT Coordinators
