Optional subjects through Irish for incoming 1st Year Students

Optional subjects through Irish for incoming 1st Year Students

Dia duit / Hello,

CBC are proposing to give the option for our incoming 1st year students 2020-2021 to do PE, SPHE (Social Personal & Health Education) and History through Irish. PE and SPHE are not examination subjects at Junior Cycle Level. We currently have the teachers ready to teach these subjects in Irish. In this current school year, one of our 1st year classes are doing PE and SPHE through Irish.

If interested, please complete survey below.

Buntáistí / Benefits:

  1. The students will all be mixed in every other subject with other students except PE, SPHE and History.
  2. Class size in these classes will be smaller. Greater teacher to student ratio. This will benefit the student.
  3. Their written and spoken Irish will improve. This will benefit them where 40% of their Irish Leaving Certification Exam is based on their spoken Irish.
  4. We will employ a language assistant in the classroom for these subjects to support the students with their learning. This teacher will be additional to the main subject teacher.
  5. Scholarships to Irish colleges
