Next week in Tækniskólinn
Next week there will be only three days of classes – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. These days are followed by winter break which lasts from Thursday the 22nd of October until Monday the 26th of October. During the winter break the school buildings will be closed (and student access cards to the buildings will not work).
Classes will be run the same way next week as they have been this week apart from íslenskubraut and starfsbraut – where more students will be attending in house classes. Students in íslenskubraut and starfsbraut that are supposed to attend in house next week will get a special e-mail about that. As before it is important to check Inna and your e-mail regularly.
I encourage you to work hard on your studies for the next days and then enjoy the winter break. Towards the end of next week you will be able to see your midwinter assessment in Inna which is supposed to help you evaluate how you are doing in your classes. We use 4 letters for midwinter assessment:
A = Ágætt. The student is doing well in class
B = Í lagi. The student is doing ok
C = Ábótavant. The student needs to put in some hard work to pass
X = not enough information present to make an assessment
I want to repeat my thanks to you for your hard work and resilience this term. If you are having any problems don‘t hesitate to contact a student counselor, a supervisory teacher, the psychologist or your skólastjóri.
My final words this week: don‘t give up – we will finish this together!
Have a good weekend!
