WILL THE SCHOOLS REOPEN 2021????
User317 Junior Cert English11

Hey Everyone, Will the schools reopen and whats your thoughts? Will the Mocks still go ahead? I'm just curious as the government hasn't said anything if the schools are reopening and the cases in the Hospitals are very high. Does that mean we will reopen? Thanks

I genuinly think the Mocks will be cancelled for both jc and lc but they are very flexible so i wouldnt underestimate. My prediction is that we will reopen by March or we could go the whole year.

i think our school is planning on going back on the 22nd of february (the week after midterm) because they rescheduled the pres to start on the 22nd instead of the 1st :)

Yeah st. paddys day now and I heard a few thing about after Easter. My guess is that mocks will deffo be cancelled (even doe our school says they will yake place two weeks after we go back) and I think they might scrap the Junor cert in order to focus on the leaving

I genuinly think predicted grades is the best option for Jc cause this doesnt go for any colleges it just essentially shows how mich yoive done in 3 years

@Joberts03 in short, they take into account your class test grades and your schools average grades for that year and give you a grade based on that. Your teacher will give grades they think you will recieve and the DOE take all that info into account and give you a grade

I think schools are not gonna open because of Covid and its just uneccasry of putting 30 kids into a room that is as big a garden shed and not learning properly as there is more distractions in school than at home instead of kids acctuly taking their time. if School opens when silage season starts, i am gonna lose it!!!!! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::tractor:
