Dear Students,
I hope that you and your families are all keeping safe and well. In the week that has passed since the last newsletter, the Minister for Education, Joe McHugh TD, has announced that the Orals and some of the practical examinations in the State Examinations have been cancelled. I prepared a Factsheet on this announcement for the school’s social media channels on Twitter @stkevinsdublin and on Instagram @st.kevins_college. It is included at the end of this newsletter. Importantly, the Minister stated clearly that there are no plans to cancel the June exams at present.
Schools are now officially closed until Sunday 19th April.

St Kevin’s College Guidance Department assists and encourages students to work towards achieving their potential by making informed choices about their lives in all respects – personal, social, educational and vocational. It also provides sensitive care and support to students when faced with life’s challenges and endeavours to empower them to accomplish their goals.

The Guidance Department offers students both one-to-one counselling and careers advice. We operate an open door policy throughout the academic year. Students can ask for an appointment with the Guidance Counsellor at any stage throughout the school day.

Parents/Guardians are also encouraged to contact the Guidance Counsellor to discuss any matters or concerns relating to their child or to arrange an appointment. They are also encouraged to meet with the Guidance Counsellor at information evenings.

Guidance Counsellor: Ms. Laura O’Flanagan
