The subject choice talk for parents of students going into 5th Year which was scheduled to take place on Tuesday 24th March is now postponed due to the school closure.

School Routine
31 Mar 2020, 1:00 AM
A reminder to all our students of the importance of sticking to your school routine/timetable and setting aside the school hours during the day to do school work. It is also good to stick to the school hours so that you have a fixed time to finish up, relax, get some (socially distant) fresh air etc. It is important that everyone looks after themselves at this time! Teachers have been reporting some students missing scheduled online classes during the day. When you have online video classes scheduled you will be notified on Google Classroom and they will be during the time you would normally have that class. This means that you must be logged onto Google Classroom each morning. We have only one more week to the Easter holidays when you can take a break!
