Junior Cert/Cycle 2020

As you are aware the Junior Cert/Cycle 2020 has been cancelled. The Department of Education & Skills will issue a certificate to all students stating that they have completed three years of study in their particular subjects. Schools have been asked to assess the students and to issue a report which would complement the Department’s certificate. All subject departments in the school have drawn up an assessment criteria which will be published on Google Classroom next week. Criteria will vary depending on the subject but they all follow Department of Education guidelines. Many subjects will include an end of year exam/assignment/project and we would ask that all students are made aware of this. We appreciate the support of both pupils and parents in this difficult teaching and learning environment.
