11th May 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians/Students,

We hope that our students and their families are continuing to stay safe and well during these difficult times.

As you are aware, there was an announcement on Friday from the Department of Education and Skills (DES) stating that the Leaving Certificate will not take place this summer. Instead, The DES are replacing this summer’s Leaving Certificate with a system of Calculated Grades for students and you can access this guide directly here:

https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/1afce4-a-guide-to-calculated-grades-for-leaving-certificate-students-2020/

I would ask that everyone takes the time to read this document. At this moment in time we do not have all of the answers to the particular questions you may have.

There is a useful question and answer piece available here: https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/2f07eb-leaving-cert-2020-information/

I hope Friday's announcement brings some degree of clarity for our 6th years. You have been very much in our thoughts throughout this situation.

Many of the supports available to students on this link may still be relevant:

We will be back in touch with you when we have further information and clarity on certain issues.

Kind regards,

Ronan Coffey

Principal
