Kilkeel High School is becoming riddled with positive Covid-19 cases meaning people having to isolate and have exams rescheduled. Exams that’s I’ve been told by staff members are “useless” if so why are students being made to go through with them? 

Kilkeel High School has never had as many positive cases as they do right now, This is making students feel unsafe and not feel comfortable going in to sit exams. I understand Kilkeel High can’t call the shots but they aren’t doing anything to help us! Why aren’t they fighting to get these exams cancelled? 

Teachers have informed us that CCEA need three pieces of work evidence if we have another wave of Covid-19 in September-June of the next academic year to be able to give us a final grade. Why can’t we use December 2020, December 2021 and work quality? The chances are we will all be vaccinated and not even need our grades to be predicted because we will be able to sit our real GCSE exams. My point is why can’t this be worked around us the same way it was for the last years GCSE students. 

We haven’t had a proper year of learning, We have had to homeschool in October 2020 and January- April 2021 that’s nearly half of the school year being homeschooled. How does it make sense to examine us on topics we have had to teach ourselves because some teachers seem to think Lockdown 2021 was a furloughed holiday, so for some subjects they have been completely taught from home with little to no help.

Please work this around us and hear our voices, this isn’t an excuse to sit back and relax this is now a matter of students not actually feeling safe in fear that they will catch Covid-19.
