Transition Year

The Transition Year Programme is a one-year optional programme following Junior Certificate. It provides a bridge to enable students to make the transition for the more dependent type of learning associated with the Junior Cycle to the independent learning environment of the Senior cycle. It encourages personal and social development and fosters academic achievement as students prepare for a Leaving Certificate programme, further study and adult and working life. Crucially, it seeks to promote maturity. The core subjects are continued throughout the year, and a wide range of interesting modules are developed by the staff, allowing students to explore individual areas of interest. All this is supplemented by an extensive non-academic programme of activities.

St. Benildus College T.Y. students sample the Great Outdoors.
The boys have had a great time making the most our local amenities over the past few weeks. They have hiked Ticknock, had a refreshing swim at Seapoint and have enjoyed the views from the Hellfire Club. They have also been to Deer Park, Airfield, Marlay Park and Fernhill Gardens. We are so lucky to be in an area that has so much to offer. Hopefully, these experiences will inspire the boys to get out and about at the weekends.
