Transition Year in St Louis Secondary School is one where our students get to enjoy all sorts of exciting new experiences. Although we are living through Covid times at present, Year Head Ms Galligan is working with staff to make sure that the girls have as normal a TY year as possible.
Activities such as Gaisce, the SVP monthly workshops and Create the Great have continued. In place of the annual musical, which at present is on hold, the students are creating their own scripts which they will then produce, film, edit and present for the rest of the year group.
Enterprise mini-companies continue and the girls will have their annual Trade Fair on December 18th 2020, as is usual each year, albeit with fewer visitors.
Academic subjects are part of the programme in TY in St Louis. Maths, Irish and English are given time to maintain standards for Leaving Cert. Students get the chance to try out all subjects, in a modular model, in order to ensure subject choices for Leaving Cert are carefully made.
At present the girls have researched and engaged with employers in order to organise work experience, which will go ahead if possible.
