Mock Exams Corrections

The Mock Exams have taken place in our college for 6th and 3rd Year students and both staff and students are pleased with their efforts. A special thanks to all who facilitated some of our students who had to take their exams remotely. A huge thanks to our Parents Association who really supported our students who took their exams in special centres and acted as scribes and readers. There is a significant cost associated with delivering the Mock Exams and this needs to be recouped. The charge for the Mocks is €50 per student to a maximum of €50 for families with more than 1 student taking the Mocks.

For clarity, all students are offered the opportunity to sit the Mocks and all Mocks will be corrected by their teachers and the results uploaded to VS Ware. The results will not be made available to parents on VS Ware and will instead be printed and posted home to the parents who have paid for the Mock results. Teachers are to return the scripts and share the results of Mock papers only with students who have paid after the mid-term break. I am asking the parents/guardians of our exam classes, 3rd and 6th, to pay the mocks fee on Enrol so that their children will benefit from the feedback their teachers can offer.

Climb With Charlie:

Climb with Charlie is a national fundraising event organised by Charlie Bird, formally of RTE, who was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 2021. He is hiking Croagh Patrick on the 2nd of April with family and friends to raise funds for two Irish Charities- Irish Motor Neurone Disease and Pieta House. To support Charlie on his campaign Rang Tara and Rang Uisnigh will be hiking the Great Sugarloaf in County Wicklow on the 14th of March with their tutors Ms Mullins & Ms Doyle. While our TY students are hiking up the Great Sugarloaf, our entire school will walk the loop in our locality to support them. €5 has been added to the enrol of each student in our college. Parents, if they wish, can donate to this fundraiser by logging onto enrol and paying any amount up to €5. We appreciate all support for this worthwhile cause.

Student Cards

The company that is delivering the student cards will be in the College on Wednesday 2nd March (Wednesday after Mid-term).

All students will need to have their €12 ready to give to the company on the day. They will be taking pictures for the cards on this day also. If you don't have money in on Wednesday 2nd March, you CANNOT GET A STUDENT CARD.

If there is anyone in your tutor groups that did not get the chance to fill out a form already, they can do it on the day no problem.

Students will be called down throughout the day.

Many thanks,

Ms. Buckley.
