FAO ALL 6th Year Pupils

Dear 6th Years,

We are struggling to manage advice for pupils, parents and teachers and we have found it difficult to move from making every effort to support our 6th Years to now being directed by the Department of Education & Skills that school ended for 6th Years on 8th May and that our 6th Year teachers must stop all contact with the 6th Years.
There has been both an overload of information and a degree of confusion around some of that information.
We have been awaiting an FAQ document to explain some of the situations that exist across the different subject areas.
We have been receiving emails all morning from teachers as well as pupils.
Please note that we have set up a dedicated email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to take any queries. Please also note that the Guidance Dept., Home School Liaison ( Ms. Marie Therese Doherty ) and the 6th Year Head Mrs. Serena Doherty, are all still available to provide support to our 6th Years.
With regard to the calculated grades the teachers will be using the information they currently have when estimating the calculated grade. When this estimate is sent to the department they will adjust it in accordance with the standardisation process. No marks will be lost because the engagement has stopped at this point.
The teachers themselves would like to be in contact and find this very difficult. Careers advice is still available through the Guidance department.
For any pupils who were considering a change of level ( from Higher to Ordinary ) this can be managed by sending in a request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
We will try and respond to all emails and will send out any further information as we receive it.

Please take care of yourselves and try to take a step back from trying to guess all the possible angles about the calculated grades.

Principal
