Dear Parents/Guardians of TY Students, I would like to welcome your daughter to this years Transition Year Programme. With the schools fully reopening and restrictions being lifted, we hope that the Transition Year Programme will provide lots of opportunities for your daughter to embrace. The scheduled programme is dynamic and varied and will allow the students to build on existing skills and develop new ones. It will also encourage students to be more independent learners and we are all here to support them along their journey. We have high expectations for our students here in terms of attendance, punctuality, and participation in all class work and in all activities. Students are encouraged to buy in to the programme and bring along an “I can do” attitude. Your daughter will be encouraged to find her own work experience placements and we would ask you to challenge her to do the networking and make the contacts. The work experience dates are December 6th to 17th 2021 inclusive and May 3rd to 13th 2022 inclusive.
Finally, I hope your daughter has a fantastic year and should you have any ideas, skills or suggestions to offer that might enhance the programme we offer, I would be delighted to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours sincerely Mary (Hayes) O Dwyer Programmes Co-ordinator
