Junior Cycle 2021” is attached (Click “View Pdf” below or see post from 11/3/21). As was the case for Junior Cycle 2020 there will be two elements to students' certification for Junior Cycle 2021 1) A State Certificate of Completion of the Junior Cycle from the Department of Education. 2) A School Report - detailing the learning achievements of each student during their Junior Cycle Programme - the assessment of students' learning will be provided by their teachers and will reflect learning over the course of the Junior Cycle programme. For the school report each subject teacher will determine a grade based on a combination of the following. (a) A percentage awarded for the November exams (b) A percentage from elements of coursework/project work/best work etc (c) A percentage from one or two class tests/assessments that may take place in class between now and the end of the school year. From a student's perspective they do not need to change their approach or do anything new. They should simply continue to engage positively and to the best of their ability with their learning. As always, please make contact through the school office if we can do anything to support your son/daughter. https://d50adfe6df36c7bceba2-914c455a73d068384f0e16181ce1b7cf.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/pdf/9939_20210416092328.pdf.........

The deadline has been extended until Thursday 22nd April, but Form 00S1 (attached as Pdf below) must now be submitted by this date for all 6th Year students who have registered or will be registering for Accredited Grades in the subject(s) they are studying outside of school. Please not that students can not enter for a new subject at this stage they can only change levels and add or amend their decisions around sitting the exam and/or receiving Accredited Grades in subject they previously entered on the student portal. SEC INFORMATION NOTE 1. All students who are studying subjects out-of-school and students of non-curricular languages should be advised to familiarise themselves with the Guide to Accredited Grades for Leaving Certificate 2021 for (a) Out-of-School Subjects and (b) Out-of-School Learners available at gov.ie/leavingcertificate. (Attached as Pdf below) 2. Students who are studying subject/s entirely outside of school are required to complete and return an Initial Information Form (OOS 1) to their Principal as soon as possible but no later than Thursday 22 April 2021 (note: this date has been extended to allow more time for students to engage with the process). This form is available at gov.ie/leaving certificate. These students are those students attending your school but taking subjects outside of the school. The school will acknowledge receipt of Initial Information Forms in writing. These forms will be retained in the school. It is very important that these students read the Guide to Accredited Grades for Leaving Certificate 2021 for (a) Out-of-School Subjects and (b) Out-of-School Learners and prepare to engage with the processes set out in section three of the guide. 3. Students who have registered for a non-curricular language in Leaving Certificate 2021. These students are not required to compete the Initial Information Form (OOS 1). As a consequence of the particular context of non-curricular languages in the Leaving Certificate special arrangements are being put in place for all students in this category to access an Accredited Grade. All students who are registered for a non-curricular language in Leaving Certificate 2021 will be provided with an opportunity to complete a written Proficiency Assessment on the afternoon of the 8 May in their school. Students of non-curricular languages should note this date carefully. If they choose not to complete the Proficiency Assessment, the only route to a grade in their non-curricular language is by taking the relevant examination in June. https://d50adfe6df36c7bceba2-914c455a73d068384f0e16181ce1b7cf.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/pdf/6424_20210413151641.pdf https://d50adfe6df36c7bceba2-914c455a73d068384f0e16181ce1b7cf.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/pdf/7641_20210413151654.pdf.........

nsite learning this Monday, we are conscious that our junior year groups and TYs will have to continue with remote learning for another two weeks. In recognition of the hard work and excellent engagement from most students over the last number of weeks, we are making next week - - - No Homework Week - - - for those year groups who are still remote learning. Online classes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd Year & TY students will continue as normal, but students will not be set any homework for the duration of next week (Mon 15th March – Fri 19th March inclusive). We know how challenging remote learning is for families over such an extended period of time and we thank students and parents sincerely for your exceptional efforts and engagement. .........

ation in relation to governments recent announcement in relation to the reopening of schools. We are very much looking forward to the return of our 5th & 6th Years over the coming weeks. 6th Years will re-commence in-school learning from this Monday, 1st March and 5th years from Monday 15th March. Of course, we would love to be in a position to welcome all of our students back and it is unfortunate that our 1st, 2nd, 3rd & Transition Years have to continue with remote learning for a little longer. To those students, we ask that you keep working hard. We know how challenging remote learning is, but we ask that you continue to put the time and effort into your live lessons and written assignments/homework in the same way as you did before the mid-term break. You will be back in school before you know it and your learning during this time will stand to you. Don't forget to try to get outside regularly throughout the day and if possible take some exercise. This will improve your mood and overall well-being, as well as increasing your brain power as you face into the next lesson. As always we encourage parents to email us on office@presmilltown.ie if we can help in any way. https://d50adfe6df36c7bceba2-914c455a73d068384f0e16181ce1b7cf.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/pdf/9429_20210225130406.pdf.........
