TY Information - Thursday march 26th

  • 26th Mar 2020 8:33 am
Good Morning to all Transition Years and your parents and guardians. Firstly may I compliment you on your active engagement with the new reality we are all getting used to since schools closed last week. The feedback from staff has been overwhelmingly positive. In a year where you are constantly being asked to ‘step outside of your comfort zone’ no one could have imagined this. However, now is the time to put your new maturity and personal growth to good use in embracing the many new challenges facing you. It is also a time to think about putting Community before Self, something we spoke about often, in the lead up to your Social Placements, last November. Yours will certainly be a Transition Year to remember, but hopefully not all because of the Covid-19 Pandemic. The spread of the Coronavirus however is, and may continue to have, an impact on the programme we had planned for you. So, as of today, March 26th: - Any and all activities and trips due to take place during this period of school closure have been cancelled. - In particular, The Outdoor Education Trip to Petersburg OEC in Galway, which was planned for Saturday 25th April, is now also officially cancelled. We know that this will come as a huge disappointment to everyone but the health and safety of you and your families is paramount at this time. -There will be adjustments made to TY expenses to reflect these cancellations. These will be made when schools re-open. Thank you for your understanding and take care. Ms Rodgers
