‘Going Home’

Remembrance Evening.

This year our annual Remembrance Service was recorded and will be shown to Religion classes next week. The theme of the service is ‘Going Home‘. In the recording, the theme is explored through music,prayer, reflections and poetry. Each of us is on a journey, in the same way, our loved ones who have passed were on a journey and have made their final journey home to God. Many thanks to all who prepared the service so that our school community can remember their loved ones who have passed.



‘Almighty God, guide us, guard us and keep us safe. Comfort our losses and lessen our grief. We ask this prayer in your holy name and in the names of our loved ones who have gone home to God, to their eternal resting place.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord

May perpetual light shine upon them,

May they rest in peace’.


Study Skills

All 6th year students recently attended a Study Skills Seminar provided by Inspireeducation.com.  Each student received a Leaving Cert Study Skills Guide and attended an online seminar where they were introduced to a five–step guide to exam success.  In addition, they were introduced to a range of study and revision strategies that should enable them to make informed decisions about what is an effective and efficient approach for them.  Students also devised an exam countdown planner as part of an exploration of effective time management tools.  They were also shown how to prepare psychologically for exam time and how to maximise exam techniques. Inspire education have also provided us with an online parent support seminar which covers:

  • The Science of Learning
  • Practical Homework and Revision Strategies

  • Student Wellbeing

This link was sent to all parents on Wednesday via email.
