Transition Year

The Transition Year (TY) is a One-Year programme that forms the first year of a three-year senior cycle. All students are expected to complete the Transition Year programme. It is designed to act as a bridge between the Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate programmes. Transition Year offers learners an opportunity to mature and develop without the pressure of any State Examinations. It also provides an opportunity for learners to reflect on, and experience, an appreciation for the ever-changing demands of the adult world of work. Some of the courses that our students study and experience as part of the Transition Year Programme include:

  • Work Experience
  • European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL)
  • Charity Fundraising and Collections
  • TY Truck and Tractor Run
  • Young Social Innovators
  • First Aid Course
  • School Musical – Drama
  • Variety/Talent Show
  • GAA Future Leaders
  • Car Safety and Driving Simulation
  • Driver Theory Test Preparation
  • President’s Gaisce Award
  • TY Retreat
  • Field Trips
  • Cookery
  • Yoga
  • Coding
  • Enrichment Activities
  • Diocesan Trip to Lourdes
  • Hillwalking
  • Surfing
