The sun was shining as we finally got to celebrate our student’s JCSP achievements. All students have completed this program in school, and by distance learning at home during school closure due to Covid. Their resilience and ability to adapt and learn at this time is worth commendation.
Every year we normally have a big celebration and we invite parents, house parents family, and friends. However, this year we had to keep the celebration small due to the current pandemic situation.
We were delighted to use our outdoor classroom for this presentation. The JCSP Graduation was a lovely celebration where we got to acknowledge and celebrate all of the amazing achievements the students have achieved for the Junior Cert School Programme. The long list of achievements includes; Performing with Holy Family Deaf Choir, a committee member of Green School, Newsletter initiatives, Woodwork initiative where our students created a beautiful, bespoke victorian wooden rocking horse, a Picnic Table for the schoolyard, a Film Making initiative, Fundraising for charities, organising events such as Maths day, Pi day etc.. Active members of the school sports team and the Challenge Cup.
Each student was given a student profile, a letter of reference with positive comments from all their teachers, certificates for their achievements, a sign language ornament with the ISL alphabet G to represent ‘graduation’ and ‘greatness’. We are very proud of them and we wish them every success in the future. Well done students and to all our hard-working teachers and to JCSP Co-ordinator Maggie Owens. Thank you Caitlin for taking all the photos and to JOhn for the JCSP Poster.
