An tseachtain deireanach 19/20

A chairde,

Tá laethanta saoire an tSamhraidh ós ár gcomhair anois le seachtain amháin oibre le déanamh.

Our remote classes/work finished on Friday and the last week of this term May 25th-29th will be devoted to the completion of assessments and examinations. I am attaching the timetable below this paragraph again for convenience.

Amchlár 25ú - 28ú Bealtaine

You will see that we are allowing lots of time for each test or assessment to be completed. For example, a test might take an hour in real time but we have allowed three hours in total to complete and upload back to the relevant teacher. This extra time is to allow for the fact that not every student’s circumstances are the same at home and the ability of students to perform under time constraints is not one of the things being assessed on this occasion. Some days students may only have one examination or assessment to complete. Students should be aware of the directions teachers have given to access and submit the test. This information has been shared with students through the normal forums - Teams and so on.

We ask students to put an honest effort into these assessments, they will have the whole summer ahead of them to rest and recuperate. ‘Imíonn an tuirse ach fanann an tairbhe’.

As I mentioned in a previous communication it is very important that parents or students communicate with the school – if there are any issues technical, personal or otherwise that will impact your son/daughters participation in these assessments. We can only understand and allow for these problems if we are aware of them.

I will be in contact with you all during the week with details of our ‘Tionól an tSamhraidh’(Summer assembly) on Friday 29th.

Le meas i gconaí,

Tony Ó Murchú
