1st to 2nd Yr Options Information

Despite the current school closures - we must look ahead to September 2020. Our 1st years must choose what optional subjects they want to take next in Coláiste Bhaile Chláir.

Students can choose to

  1. Keep their Modern Foreign Language (Spanish, German, Italian or French)
  2. Choose 3 optional subjects from Visual Art, Music, Home Ec. History, Geography, Business Studies, Religious Education (Exam), Graphics(New name for TG), Engineering(New name for Metalwork) and Wood Technology (new Name for Woodwork)
  3. then choose 2 reserve subjects as it may not be possible to offer everyone their top subjects. Most get them and very few do not get their last choice and end up with one of their reserves.

In lieu of the parents information evening we were due to have in early April; we have included the presentations here for you - with detailed information on each subject. Also email your optional teachers if you require any further information.

1 Key piece of advice: Pick subjects you like as you will do best in these.

For Leaving Cert you will do Maths, English and Irish, normally your language and at least 1 science subject (this is 5 subjects) and normally 2 more. So it is your First 3 choices including the language that are most important.

Remember also that PE and CSPE are options for LCert also as examination subjects through Politics and Society and the new LCert PE exam subject.

So you will have lots of options come 5th year.

Closing date for completing the options is Monday 13th April.
