Transition Year 2021

This year the students of Transition Year each produced a website to reflect the learning and achievements, that they completed this year.

Below is a selection of links to some of the websites the students produced.

Well done to all the students and what they achieved, especially in a challenging year to be a Transition Year. So much of much of Transition Year is about interaction and exploration, much of which was curtailed and restricted this year. Despite these difficulties as you can see from below, the students were still busy and hard working.

3rd Year Options 2021

Normally at this time of year we would meet with all the 3rd year students and their parents to discuss the next steps in their educational progress. Unfortunately this year due to the ongoing pandemic it is not possible to meet in the usual way.

Below you will find a video outlining the options available to 3rd years as they progress to Senior Cycle.

Mr Burke will be in touch with the parents of the 3rd year classes in the coming days to outline the steps that need to be taken to select a course for Senior Cycle

The competition is heating up and the classes are outdoing each other each day… with a week to judging the pressure is on ..,, Watch this Space …. don’t forget each member of the class must be represented on the door
