The Subject Choices for 5th years, which involves the 3rd years who are not doing TY along with the current TY class, will begin during the week of April 3rd. Teachers of the option subjects will speak to the students. A Parents’ Information Evening, which will also include information about LCVP will take place at a date to be decided.
LCVP is a very worthwhile programme which we offer each year to 5th years. It is in essence, preparation for the world of work. It allows a student to substitute the LCVP result (if they earn either Merit or Distinction) they receive in their Leaving Cert for their lowest grade when applying for CAO courses. Students do Work Experience which is the basis of some of their project. LCVP students will have completed both their Exam and Project before their Leaving Cert begins which is a great relief to them.
