News/Notification Details
23rd Apr 2020 9:26 am
Dear parent/guardian and 3rd Year students. We know that there continues to be a lot of uncertainty for students over this year’s Junior Certificate, in particular in light of media reports in recent days. The Department for Education has said that there will not be a state certified Junior Certificate for 2020. However, we currently do not have any details of the department’s announcements about school-based assessment for Junior Cycle students in the Autumn. The Minister for Education has asked schools to delay making any decisions around the assessment of Junior Cycle students until DES have completed their discussion with the relevant education partners in the coming days. Once we have more information we will notify parents and students. In the meantime teachers will continue to complete courses and communicate with 3rd Year students through our Office 365 platform. We know that it may be incredibly hard for students to stay motivated in the midst of such uncertainty, but we ask that you keep communicating with your teachers and completing as much work as your situation allows. This work, progress and learning routine will serve as good preparation for your 5th Year courses. As always please do not hesitate to contact us through office@presmilltown.ie if we can do anything to help at this difficult time.
