Dear Parents/ Guardians/ Students,

This is definitely not how we imagined the last day of the 2019/20 school year. For many families and students it has been a challenging time since schools closed on the 12th March. Many thanks to all of you for engaging with distance learning over the last nine weeks.

For our 3rd and 6th years it has been a particularly challenging time. There have been many changes to contend with on top of the normal anxiety the occurs around the State Exams. We will be issuing our own Pipers Hill College Junior Cycle Achievement Report in the next week or so.

At the moment our teachers of 6th year are working through a National process to calculate grades for our students so they can move on to the next stage of their lives in September, be it college, apprenticeships or the world of work. We hope to have the school part of the process completed the over the next few weeks.

You should all have received an email regarding an opportunity to clear out lockers next week. Ms. Coleman will be in touch to organise that. I do hope there are not too many March 12th sandwiches discovered!

During the week of the 8th of June, Ms. Mulvihill will be in touch with students who have book schemes books to return and we will organise for that to happen safely also.

As a result of a two year process and much consultation we are ready to move to one hour classes in September. This means your son/ daughter will have 6 rather then 9 classes per day and 4 on a Friday. We see this as an opportunity for students to engage in far more in-depth enquiry based learning.

On a practical note, and with the probable restrictions in place at the start of the new school year, it means students will move around the building on 6 rather than 9 occasions.

We have also spent the year working on and consulting with all stakeholders on our Mission Statement, Code of Behaviour and Mobile Phone Policy. Time will be spent in the new school year communicating these to the whole school community.

We are currently finalising a transfer/ welcome pack for out incoming 1st years. That should go out in the next week and will hopefully fill in some of the gaps we would have addressed with our new students had the schools been open.

1st year and 5th year option letters have been sent out. We will also be sending student information forms for completion by email.
Book lists have been finalised and are on the website.

If you have any questions or queries regarding the new school year please contact us at Info@phcol.ie.  and we will do our best to help you.

Finally, as we wish our 6th years well and extend a warm welcome to our incoming 1st years, I wish you and you families a restful, safe and healthy Summer.

Kind regards,
Caroline Herity
