A look at what is coming up in the College this week
Newsletter Semester 2 Week 11


Welcome back everyone after our Mid-Term Break. A well-deserved break that I hope was enjoyed by all. On the Friday we finished up we said farewell to our friend and colleague, Michael Flynn, who has gone to start the next chapter in his professional career as Principal of an as of yet unnamed school that will be in the Dublin 15 area. We had a lovely gathering for him in then staff room after school and he was delighted to get the opportunity to bid farewell to Setanta again. I’m sure we will be hearing from him again soon.

Semester 2 Assessments

This week sees the commencement of our Semester 2 Assessments. These assessments give our students the opportunity to express their learning in a variety of media best suited to their method of learning. It is a time for projects, displays, performances etc.

TY News.

Our TY students have departed for then Camino since last Saturday and this year the numbers have surpassed all expectations with 44 students on the trip. This trip is very popular with our TY students as they also get the opportunity to raise funds for a chosen charity. This year they raised over €2,700 for charity, something our College can be very proud of.

Mock Results 2020:

The Mocks results will be posted to each family on Friday 13 March and there will be no results given to students before that date. This is to ensure that all students receive their results at the same time. Parents, please ensure that the mock payment has been made in full to ensure you receive your childs results on Friday March 13th.

Teams Games Tournament will take place on Wednesday 26th February for all 1st Years. More detail to follow.

Semester 2 reports close on the 12th of March and they go live on VS Ware on the 19th March.
