Semester 2 Week 1

Student Council info

The Student Council are aiming to roll out International Student Identity Cards (ISIC) throughout the college. The Cost of the Student Cards will be €12 for 1 Calendar year of the student cards ex: January 2022-January 2023. The Student Cards will be recognised Internationally, can be used online, can be used in several different Irish Stores like Dominos, Nike, New Look to name but a few. Students will need to fill out application forms if they are interested. We are also asking that students fill out a survey that all tutors received a link to on Tuesday 23rd November from Ms. Buckley. This is to get a general number of how many people want a card.

Remote Learning Practice

With the rise in covid-19 cases nationally and the upcoming restrictions due to be announced by the government Colaiste Pobail Setanta is taking a preparative step to ensure that teaching and learning can continue if there is a school lock down in the future. We need to ensure that students and teachers can access lessons and class materials remotely in the event of the school building being closed. Therefore, on the week beginning Monday 6/12/2021 we will send classes home in the afternoon, after lunch, to continue their lessons online using Teams. Below is the schedule for our online classes from Monday to Wednesday 6th to 8th December.

On the following days, these classes will learn and attend class from home after lunch.

Mon afternoon- 2nd Year & 6th Year

Tuesday afternoon- TY, LCA, 5th Year

Wednesday afternoon – 1st Year & 3rd Year & Croí poster.png
