Wellbeing and Covid-19

By Aidan on 03/04/2020

This week would have been our Wellbeing Week in Adamstown Community College. As we prepare for the Easter break, please read through the information and links on the this document for recommendations on how we can look after ourselves and our mental health during this time. 


Our TY Mentors have also been busy preparing some fun activities for students to take up over Easter. Why not use this time to learn a new skill?

The student contribution for 2020/21 is due.

By Aidan on 02/04/2020

The office in the school is closed at the moment due to the restrictions set down by the government. Parents are asked to please pay their contribution of €100 for next year as soon as possible. Payments should be made via our MIT system which is accessed through the website. This money is used to cover the cost of a locker, a school journal, photocopying, insurance cover for the pupil, swipe card, credit on the student’s swipe card for photocopying, contribution to the cost of bus hire for extra curricular activities, text messaging, VSware, Anseo, etc. 

For students who will be doing State Examinations in June 2021 there is a Mock Examination Fee of €100 in place of the contribution. The fee covers the cost of the purchase of mock papers and the correction of mock scripts as well as the items listed above.

Parents of those students who will be doing Transition Year, next year, need to ensure that the full payment of the Transition Year fee is made before the 1st June 2020.


Please note that the school is not in a position to supply the above mentioned services to students where the contribution has not been made.


If there is any difficulty making payment please engage with the school. A payment plan can be put in place.

School Closure until 19th April

By Aidan on 12/03/2020
 

In line with recent updates, Adamstown Community College will remain closed until 19th April.

As a Google school we are in a very strong position to continue teaching & learning. 


If your child has not done so already we strongly recommend that they join the  GOOGLE CLASSROOM for each of their classes. 


To do this the student must log into their Adamstown Community College Gmail account and go to the Classroom Icon

            

Once you have joined a Classroom for each of your classes work will be posted here over the closure period where possible.



Practical considerations:


1) We have advised Students to bring their textbooks home before the school closes.

2) Please be aware that many of their books come with a free ebook - these can usually be accessed by means of a code found on the inside of the paper version of the book.

3) We will communicate any updates via our website so please check it daily.
