Senior Cycle Options


TY/Senior Cycle Options Information Session

On January 31st we held an information session for parents/guardians of students moving on to senior cycle.  We covered all options available to our students, Transition Year, Leaving Certificate, Leaving Certificate with LCVP and Leaving Certificate Applied.  There were a number of presentations explaining all the options.  We also distributed information booklets and application forms.  If you missed any of the above or would like to take a look at the information again, please see the links below.

Ms. Nunan delivered a very informative presentation around LCVP.  As there is often confusion around exactly what LCVP is, we would strongly encourage you to revisit the information below before your daughter makes her final subject choices.  LCVP is in fact an extra subject taken with the traditional Leaving Certificate (it is nothing to do with Leaving Cert Applied as is often thought).  It offers students an opportunity to earn points applicable to CAO through work other than academic study, such as project work, group work etc.  They also gain valuable life skills for entering the workforce such as how to put their CV together and interview skills.  Please take a look at the presentations below for more information:
