lation to our 2nd Year European trips in the Spring of 2022. We have sufficient interest to plan for these trips to take place next Spring, subject to DES and Public Health guidance on travel at the time. The definitive decision on this will be made in early September. EARLY INITIAL PAYMENT OPTION The initial instalment payment (€200) will be available on our school app later today and can be paid in a lump-sum or in 3 equal instalments between now and the end of August. Please remember this early payment is not compulsory and parents can defer this initial payment until early September and pay in one-lump sum of €200 if they wish. This early payment option is simply to provide parents/students with the opportunity to begin saving towards the trip. If the trips do not go ahead or if a student changes their mind at the start of September this payment will be refunded in full. Once the trips are fully confirmed in September and the 2nd payment is made at the start of September this amount is no longer refundable. Any subsequent payments will also be non-refundable. PASSPORTS A few parents have been in contact in relation to out-of-date passports. There is no need to email the photo page of out-of-date passports. However, due to the expected backlog in issuing passports we strongly urge that new passports are applied for immediately if your son/daughter hopes to travel on one of the 2nd Year trips next February. Once you receive the new passport please email a photo or scan of the photo page to the relevant email address below. paristrip@presmilltown.ie or skitrip@presmilltown.ie Please note that these email addresses are for document gathering purposes only and not for communication. All communication should be sent to office@presmilltown.ie as normal. Thank you. .........

cebook page and school app at 7.30pm on Tuesday 25th May. During the school day on Tuesday 25th May our 6th Year students will be presented with their graduation certificates, booklet, and year group photo gift in their base-class groups. The Department of Education and NPHET have asked schools to remind 6th Year students to act responsibly over the coming days and weeks and not to attend any social events/gatherings or other events leading to large congregations or smaller events in houses which greatly increase the risk of spreading COVID-19. Accredited Grades will be provided to any candidate, eligible to receive them, who are unable to attend for any of their examinations for COVID related reasons set out above; due to other medical emergencies including hospitalisation; or in the event of a bereavement. There will be no alternative sitting of any of the examinations at the 2021 Leaving Certificate for any circumstances including bereavement. This contingency measure applies in the case of a candidate being unable to attend for their examinations and equally in circumstances where it might not prove possible to provide examinations such as if there is a more significant disruption such as a school closure or a local, county, regional or national lockdown. .........

t we are still not allowed to gather students in large groups. Unfortunately, this means that we will not be able to hold our graduation Mass in the usual way again this year. Instead, we will be remote streaming the graduation service via our Facebook page at 7.30pm on Tuesday 25th May so that all students, parents and their families can share in the celebration safely from home, as was the case for graduation last year. Unlike last year we are fortunate enough to have our 6th Year students on-site with us every day. This means that we will be able to have far more student involvement in the graduation ceremony as well as students being able to be in school with their friends for their official last day (25th May). During the school day on Tuesday 25th May our 6th Year students will be presented with their graduation certificates, booklet, and year group photo gift in their base-class groups. We know that this is not how students might have imagined their last day and graduation to be, but we are acutely aware of how important it is for us to keep our students and their families safe by following all of the government restrictions that are in place until the final Leaving Certificate exams are finished. Despite the change in format, our 6th Year students have been enthusiastically preparing their graduation prayers, speeches, artwork, and music and to make the ceremony uniquely theirs. We welcome you and your families to join us remotely via the link that will be posted on our Facebook page and app at 7.30pm on Tuesday 25th May to celebrate our Class of 2021. .........

Junior Cycle 2021” is attached (Click “View Pdf” below or see post from 11/3/21). As was the case for Junior Cycle 2020 there will be two elements to students' certification for Junior Cycle 2021 1) A State Certificate of Completion of the Junior Cycle from the Department of Education. 2) A School Report - detailing the learning achievements of each student during their Junior Cycle Programme - the assessment of students' learning will be provided by their teachers and will reflect learning over the course of the Junior Cycle programme. For the school report each subject teacher will determine a grade based on a combination of the following. (a) A percentage awarded for the November exams (b) A percentage from elements of coursework/project work/best work etc (c) A percentage from one or two class tests/assessments that may take place in class between now and the end of the school year. From a student's perspective they do not need to change their approach or do anything new. They should simply continue to engage positively and to the best of their ability with their learning. As always, please make contact through the school office if we can do anything to support your son/daughter. https://d50adfe6df36c7bceba2-914c455a73d068384f0e16181ce1b7cf.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/pdf/9939_20210416092328.pdf.........
