Good morning to all our lovely 6th class girls,
Can you believe that today is your last Tuesday as a pupil of OLV!?
For today's task, I have uploaded onto our Padlet Page a special reflection task 'A letter to myself' for you to complete. Using this webpage www.futureme.org/ you can write a letter to yourself which will be then emailed back to you! You can choose to send it to yourself in 1, 3 or 5 years!
What should you write?
Well you are all creative and talented authors but here are some suggestions if you stumble upon a 'writer's block':
1) Give advice
What sort of an secondary student to you want to be? What skills and attributes that you have acquired in OLV do you want to take with you and continue to develop in 1st year? How can you remind yourself to stay true to what is important to you now?
What are your goals for secondary school ?The more specific you are, the more likely you are to keep on adhere to them and keep on track.
3) Write about your mistakes and worries.
What have you done wrong? What is your biggest regret? What causes you the most anxiety about your future? What can the future you do to help herself alleviate all her concerns and worries?
4) Tell about your joys.
What makes you happy? What things excite you about going into secondary school ?
What does your ideal school day look like?
5) Remind yourself about yourself.
Who are the 5 most important people in your life, and why? What was your favourite book this year? How did it affect you? What are your interests? What do you believe in?
Type up all of the above out and send it to yourself! It's that easy!
Just imagine in a year's time reading back and realising that all your worries didn't come to pass and discovering how you have grown and developed as a teenager. Also you will come to learn that some things will not have changed as these are the special unique characteristics that make you.....YOU!
Wednesday 24th June
By now you will have all received a text from the school with a time slot for the collection of your graduation certificate and gift which takes place tomorrow. Please adhere to the 20 minute time frame that's been assigned to you. We have worked hard to put together a timetable to ensure that everyone can arrive and leave the school safely but we need everyone to adhere to social distance guidelines. As building works are taking place across the campus everyone will enter the school ground via the side pedestrian gate and make there way through the Infants yard into the girls' school yard. From there, keeping two metres apart from your peers you will wait until your name is called. You will then enter the school via the yard door beside the Parents Room and will be directed straight into Room 1 (Ms. Cassidy's Room). On entering the room you will be greeted by your class teacher who will show you where you can deposit you school books before collecting you gift bag. A one way system will be in operation where by on exiting Room 1 you will make your way down the hall to the exit door beside Room 5 (Ms. Holden's Room). When you exit the building you are to immediately leave the school grounds ASAP to ensure that your classmates are afforded the opportunity to enter and exit the school in a safe manner. Although our encounter will be brief one, we are both very excited to see you all again. We promise that you will LOVE your gift!!
If you have any questions or queries please contact us via the comment section below or privately via email. Remember we are working in school this week so we will try to respond as soon as we possibly can.
Have a lovely day girls,
Ms. Cassidy and Ms. Farrell
