Today marks the beginning of our Wellbeing Week in CPPS. The theme for March from our wellbeing calendar has never been more important. A programme of activities and events has been put together to help students and staff become more aware of ways in which they can look after their wellbeing. Although our junior cycle classes remain engaged with learning from home; the pogramme enables them to reconnect and feel part of the whole school community. We start with 'Mindful Monday' where the day focuses on improving our understanding of what it means to be mindful. 'Thankful Tuesday' will highlight the benefits of practicing gratitude and make some suggestions as to how we can use this in our day-to-day life. St Patrick's day will be celebrated on Wednesday and so suggested activities of how we can all have a Covid-Compliant celebration will be shared. 'Top-Tips Thursday' will focus on stress and advise on ways in which we can deal with stress in a positive way. We end our week on 'Feel Good Friday' with the focus being on healthy eating and exercise and their direct links to our wellbeing. There are lots of things happening across the week. Activities will be shared via the Teams Wellbeing Areas and so students are advised to check in with their class wellbeing room daily.
Please see link below to a Candidate Self-Service Portal (CSSP) Step by Step Video Guide which has just been published. The content of the video mirrors that of the CSSP 'Before You Start' Guide published earlier in the week.
Your Leaving Certificate students may find this useful as an additional form of guidance. It would be appreciated if you could please share this video link with your students.
An Irish language version of this video is in preparation.
A Phríomhoide, a chara,

Message from State Examinations Commission
As you are aware the Candidate Self Service Portal (CSSP) opened at 12 noon yesterday to allow Leaving Certificate candidates to confirm their subject and level entry details online, and to indicate whether they want to take the examinations, or to receive SEC Accredited Grades, or both.
We are receiving communications from candidates who registered on the portal yesterday to inform us that they have omitted or made errors in their selection on the portal. We are working through the emails that we have received from these students or their school, and we will be following up on these as soon as possible. There is no need to make contact with us again. We will confirm that these changes have been made in due course.
I would be grateful if you could remind the candidates who have yet to register of the following before they hit the Submit button on the portal:
When they have made their choices for each subject and BEFORE they hit the Submit button, they should carefully review their selections to ensure they are correct.
When they see the Warning do not ignore it; check the page again. They will not be able to go back to alter their choices on the portal at this time.
