Ireland game

It's not great news but it's not bad news

I have just got 40 or so tickets for the Ireland game. It will probably be an open draw for who goes. I will give you permission slips on Monday. Draw will be on Tuesday when permission slip and money must be in. No permission slips or money = no entry into draw (unless there is a very valid reason). It will probably cost a total of 20 euro.

Hope everyone is happy with that

Shoe Box Appeal

Anyone interested in the shoe box appeal - I will need 12 students to go to Letterkenny on Monday 6th Nov to pack boxes.
All for charity. Get involved. May have to draw names out of a hat if there is too many.

Names to me by Friday of this week - please email me if you are interested


Please note - as a requirement for taking part in the above you must bring in your own shoe box to the school when they are collecting - think this is only fair!!

Please bring an old pair of clothes as they will get ruined. Check it out. Search on Facebook clonmany equestrian centre and scroll down to see some of the pictures .... I did it before .... Great craic .... hopefully you will enjoy!
Hopefully this will be a great start to the year. 

Msg from the Centre for Tuesday trip - The kids need to wear old clothes and foot ware in case they lose a shoe in the bog challenge. They need to also bring a change of old clothes to change into after the bog challenge. They need to bring a towel and a plastic bag/black bag for their wet clothes. The kids will get hosed down after the mud-run but showers are not available.PLEASE DO NOT WEAR GOOD CLOTHES AS THE CHANCES ARE YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO WEAR THEM AGAIN .... I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE!!!

PE work for the year - please take note

Money issues!!

As I mentioned on Tuesday last please see me if you have any problems with regard to money - please do not avoid trips due to money - these are the trips that you will remember most from TY

If there are any issues at all (money or anything else) - please see me and I will do my best for you - we will work out something together - payment plan - payment at a later date - please don't worry about things - come and speak to me - in confidence - My door is always open - please remember this throughout the year!


Use of pictures - please read and take note

There is a folder (TY) on the Loreto school facebook page for TY 2017/18 - we will get photos and put them up there from now on - I hope that this is okay with everyone

If there is a problem and people do not want their pictures up please see me asap and I will take care of this - if people do not have access to facebook - again please see me and we can arrange something

Please be very careful with the use of photos and if in any doubt about certain pictures .. then don't post them - be very mindful of your friends and of others - and what they would like or not like

Many thanks

Please be signed in properly

Please make sure that when u are trying to click on the links on the blog pages that u are signed into your google schools account - u can obviously do this from home - if u do this I think that you will have no problem in seeing the material - let me know but hopefully this will work for u

You will need your school email address that you were all given - any problems with this - please see Mr Curley.

You will need to be on this (school email system) all the time anyway as a lot of the teachers will be using this to send you through assignments and different pieces of information - so get using this system

Portfolio work - very important

Please remember that there are examples of portfolios and scrap books in where u have computers - have a look and be aware of what u have to do


Check out these videos

Please check out these videos - this is from the end of year presentation last year - you will be required to complete a 3 minute presentation like this - if not better - at your end of year interview. You can start working on it now at the start of the year and you can add different bits in then as you go along. There will be different teachers along the way who will help you. This presentation will be in addition to your portfolio, scrap book and any other activities that you will complete along the way. So get working and I expect to see some excellent presentations at the end of the year - your presentation can take any format - but it true to say that you would probably have to complete it on some kind of computer format.

Best of luck

Work Experience

Any students intending to start their work experience on Friday, Sept. 8th will get the necessary attendance record sheet and information for the employers from Miss Corless before then.  
If you are still finalising such a placement then make contact with your employer to inform them of your start on Friday, Sept. 15th.  
Preparation for Work classes will start next week.
All Ty students are expected to be in their first placement on the 15th September

Miss Corless
