Transition Year in St. Peter’s is an action packed year that balances the academic and the non academic aspects of school life.


Transition Year Activities

Transition Year is compulsory for all students in St. Peter’s. The academic component involves taking senior Leaving Certificate subjects – the compulsory subjects of English, Irish, Maths and French which works in harmony along a carousel system for the option subjects. This means that all Transition Year Students have the opportunity to try all the option subjects during the year before they choose their option subjects for the Leaving Cert.

Transition Year students can also look forward to work experience. This takes place in a two week period before the Christmas Holidays. Students work in an area of interest and explore the opportunites that their chosen work experience provides.

Some of the many educational, interesting & diverse activites involved in the busy year include:

  • Young Enterprise Mini-Companies
  • Public Speaking
  • Gaisce Awards
  • Music and Drama Production
  • P.A.L. Programme (Public access to Law)
  • Sports
  • Life Skills and Health Education
  • Communications Module
  • School Bank
  • Programmes e.g.
  • Drive for Life,
  • GAA Coaching
  • Road Safety Road-Show.
