Work For Mr. O’ Brien’s Classes Due To Continued School Closure March 30th to April 3rd
First and Second Year Religious Education:
There are a variety of Worksheets (10 in total) posted here on the school website. They are a mixture of quizzes, a true or false exercise and colouring pages. The colouring pages, if you wish, are a good way of taking a break from the book learning and if you decide to use them, please keep them and bring them back to school when it reopens so that we can display them on the classroom wall and celebrate your work.
Test your knowledge of religious education with the quizzes. They are a good test of your general knowledge also.
Transition Year Young Social Innovators (YSI):
A Message from YSI:
We are delighted to see YSI teams across Ireland continue to connect digitally and share the projects that they have been working on throughout the year. It is also wonderful to see some adapting their innovations to respond to the new reality we are all facing.
You may be aware that our annual celebration, #YSIweek, is taking place from 30th March – 3rd April.
This year, as is necessary, all #YSIWeek activities will be virtually-based. We want to make sure that YSI teams who have put in tremendous effort over the year can get involved, share their stories, and inspire!
You are invited to participate in #YSIWeek.
Some activities that you might think about doing over the week:
- 1. Tell Your YSI Story
We are encouraging teams to share pictures, videos, GIFs, doodles, animations and graphics on social media that tell the story of their YSI projects. We know lots of teams were not able to speak out at a local event but why not consider speaking out virtually?
- Share your most positive/inspiring YSI project experience
It might be being featured in a local paper, hosting a successful event, meeting a TD or producing a resource or publication and seeing it in print for the first time – whatever it is – we’d like to hear about the best moment that was a cause for celebration.
- Share the big message of your YSI project
What do you want to happen as a result of your YSI project? Share the key message of your project any way you’d like and we’ll help you to amplify it.
- Run a social media campaign
There are many ways to raise awareness about your chosen project issue on social media platforms. Use #YSIWeek as a good time to set up an account, if you haven’t already and link with us! Remember to stay safe online!
- Join our digital discussions
Throughout the Week, the YSI team will be asking young people about the issues that matter to them across our social media platforms. This is an opportunity for young people to discuss their experiences of being a young innovator, share tips and amplify youth voice.
The easiest way to join the conversation is to use the hashtag #YSIweek on any posts and tag @YSINow on any posts. Don’t forget to tag your school too! @stannescck
We want to make sure all students have the opportunity to collaborate and connect during the Week – if your team does not have a social media account and would like to be involved, you can send any content for sharing to us at email@example.com highlighting your school and project name.
