It was a proud night for the TYs on Tuesday, 21st May as they were presented with their certificates at the end of year presentations. A trip down memory lane caused a few tears and a chorus of "Can we repeat TY?" The TYs showcased their work over the year, decorating the Aras with Junk Kouture dresses, wooden ornaments, and artistic artifacts fashioned over the last nine months. They finished with their own rendition of Riptide and The Fields of Athenry on ukuleles, which they admitted they'd been practicing quite a lot less than the performance suggested. The wee guitars went down a blast! Thanks to all pupils and staff involved in Transition Year for a wonderful year.

What a year! The pupils showcased their time in TY through a celebration of dance on Sunday 19th and Monday 20th May. 'Dancing to the Musicals' provided a platform for the TYs to apply their dancing moves and skills and they all rocked the Aras on both nights. Well done everyone.

TY Dance Show 2019

“Dancing to the Musicals“ is the theme this year for the TY Dance Show. From Mary Poppins to the Lion King it promises to be a night of surprises, fun and of course dance moves to rock the house. The show is on Sunday 19th and Monday 20th May at 8pm. Tickets on sale all week in CCS. See you all there. It has been an eventful, jammed packed year and I want to wish all the TYs and the TY teachers a fantastic summer. - Ms. Elaine Farren

Transition Year / Primary Schools Literacy Programme

TY Primary School Literacy

All TYs have been involved in a Literacy Programme with St. Patrick's Boys and St. Patrick's Girls National School. The TY students have guided the primary students (and sometimes the other way round) through a literacy programme which included Cloze procedures, comprehensions and the most popular A-Z quiz. Both groups benefitted hugely from this programme and gained many valuable skills along the way. A huge thank you to the 5th class students in the girls school and their Teacher Ms. Clare Doherty, and to the 4th class boys and their teacher Ms. Margaret McLaughlin.
