First Year
In First Year students are timetabled to do all subjects for the entire year. This is to ensure that they are in a position to make informed subject choices for the Junior Certificate. Both parents and students are given presentations in relation to 2nd year subject choices before any final decisions are made. Some students may have an exemption from Irish and others may be entitled to additional resource classes. The SEN Co-ordinator will assist any parents with queries and co-ordinate the allocation of these extra resource classes.
