We extend a very warm St Louis welcome to our incoming first years. Year Head Ms Siobhán Higgins, along with Class Teachers will be on hand to ensure the transition from primary to secondary is as painless as possible.
The girls will follow the New Junior Cycle Programme in all of their subjects and will also receive tuition in Wellbeing, which focuses on the development of the whole person, in keeping with our school ethos. Search for a Star takes place every other year and this lends itself beautifully to Wellbeing, developing all six areas of focus through group work in the Class Act category. Time is assigned to this during the Wellbeing hours.
The girls are also assigned to Fifth Year Cairde to offer peer assistance as well as staff support in this exciting but sometimes overwhelming period of adjustment to secondary school.
Some of the many experiences open to the students in their first year are Cáirde led activites in September, as well as a Geography Field Trip, a History Field Trip, participation in sporting and musical activities at lunchtimes and after school.
The Guidance Department offers the opportunity to the girls of visits from speakers on various topics and workshops on mindfulness and other aids to enhance their learning environment in St Louis.
