Meitheal Leaders 2021-2022

2021/03/04 11:46:27

Any 5th Year student who would like to interview for Meitheal Team 2021-2022, please email Ms. M. Murphy (mdm@naascbs.ie) for information on the application process. Meitheal is a Youth Leadership Programme organised through the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin. Interviews are conducted and the Meitheal Team is selected by Meitheal Co-ordinator Robert Norton. Each year, the Meitheal Leaders offer invaluable support to our 1st Year students, helping them settle in to secondary school and we would encourage any aspiring leaders in 5th Year to apply to the Meitheal Programme. This is a fabulous opportunity for the Meitheal Leaders themselves to develop personally and work as part of a team while contributing to school life. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our current Meitheal Leaders and praise them for their wonderful work and positive attitude in mentoring the 1st Years during very challenging times this year. You are a credit to yourselves, Meitheal and Naas CBS. Many thanks, Ms. M. Murphy

2nd Year Junior Cycle Presentation 2021

2021/03/02 17:30:11

Dear 2nd Year Parents, Guardians & Students, Around this time of year, as our 2nd Year students begin their Classroom Based Assessment (CBA) journey, we traditionally like to take an opportunity to bring all 2nd Year Parents & Guardians into the school for a presentation around Junior Cycle. We also like to meet the 2nd Year students to inform them about the new terminology around Junior Cycle and clarify any questions that they may have. Due to covid-19 we are unable to present as normal. Please see the link below for a digital version of this presentation. We hope that you find it useful. Many thanks to our JCT coordinator, Andrew Keating, for his work with this presentation. Please see attached two PDF documents with some frequently asked Q&A's and information about the new junior cycle language. This is also available on our school website www.naascbs.ie under the 'JCT' tab. Wishing all of our 2nd Year students good luck with their CBA's. We hope you engage well with the different activities involved and enjoy the process. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BET7Bw6QzvSzuOKJlG5eNcotDfvnTfJ8/view?usp=sharing https://af9b90f3f28b20e79a8c-b811c69588bad063512eb87d4fe17a81.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/pdf/1359_20210302153737.pdf https://af9b90f3f28b20e79a8c-b811c69588bad063512eb87d4fe17a81.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/pdf/6166_20210302153744.pdf
