Transition Work Experience Programme

2019/10/22 09:47:49

Hi all, The November Work Experience dates are fast approaching. Attached are some documents relating to the same for your attention. Work Experience and the presentation of a completed Work Experience project, is a compulsory part of Transition Year. This week and the week after the Mid-term break I will try to catch up with all students to explain what is expected from them. The Work Experience project consists of 5 Areas for Completion. (1) Completed Parental Consent Form (2) Completed Employer Evaluation Sheets, which the students will give to their employer on the first day of the Work Experience placement. (3) Completed Daily Diary Sheets, which will be given to the boys before going out on placement. (4) Background Information on the Company / Placement, a minimum of 2 A4 pages on each placement, to include photos & information, Maximum font size 14. (5) Overall Reflection Sheet, to be filled out on return to school. If there is anything further that you need, or if you are missing forms or information please email me at Mise le meas Niall Rennick

Transition Year

Well done to all the boys last week who participated in the activities in Carlingford and the few injured ones who still chose to travel and be with their friends. I hope they had a great experience. From my point of view, it was extremely disappointing and discouraging that so many students chose not to attend school on Thursday, It does not encourage teachers to organise activities and trips for the boys if this happens, as a result of being away. Full compliments and well done to the boys who did attend school, despite being tired or exhausted from the few days away. Good Luck to 4B who are out on Community Week this week. I hope that they will gain invaluable experience from helping out in local community organisations. Parents, could you please make sure that all outstanding CV's and Letters, for students in 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D & 4E, that were due for this course, are handed in to Ms Bolger before this Wednesday 16th. Also, over the next couple of weeks, there will be a number of projects due to be handed in, so if you could check up on this, it would be appreciated. Please also note that if your son is availing of extra Work Experience, outside of the dates assigned by the school, it must be pre-approved by either Mr Travers or myself. There is important documentation to be given to employers from the school.

1st Year Barcelona Trip 2020

2019/10/14 08:32:51

Dear Parents, We spoke to all students at assembly today about the necessary paperwork for the 1st Year school trip. Please read the two attached PDF documents carefully. Your son will bring home a hard copy of each. If you loose either or both please download a copy from this App here. Please fill in the medical/dietary requirements form even if you have no requirements and return it. Also please fill in the DUBLIN AIRPORT AUTHORITY consent letter carefully and return it. Each student returns these to his 'group leader'. The group leaders are in contact with all students in their group. If your son is absent today he should go to his group leader when he returns to school in order to get a copy of both of these attachments. If you have any queries you wish to discuss please ring the school and ask for Mr. Noone, the secretary will then give you Mr. Noone's mobile number and you can ring him directly. Thank you. The organising teachers
