A message to Sixth years

Good afternoon. We hope this finds you well and I am sure quite shocked to hear the news that the Leaving Certificate has been cancelled for this year. Obviously this is unprecedented news and will take time for all of us to digest and to figure out the next steps.

What we urge all of you to do is to let the information sit with you for a few days before you make any decisions. Also make sure you are only sourcing information from credible websites as you will want to make sure that you are getting the most correct information. Similarly to yourself the school will be considering the announcement over the next few days and we will be in touch in due course with what the next steps will be.

Of course, if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact Mr O’Malley
(johnomalley@collinstownpark.ie) or Ms Davis (amandadavis@collinstownpark.ie). In the meantime stay safe and we will be in touch soon.

Parent reminder

Teachers will post important information about the summer reports on Edmodo in the coming days to students in first, second, fourth and fifth year.

If your son/daughter hasn’t joined the Edmodo group for their year already, please ensure they join now.  This is a follow up to a text this morning where the code was sent out. If you still have difficulty, the code is available from the school or by emailing collinstown@collinstownpark.ie

If they have already joined the group they do not need to re-join.
