Junior Cycle Information.

Featured

There will be an Information Evening for Parents/Guardians of First and Second Year Students on the new Junior Cycle Programme on Monday 29th January at 7.30pm. This will explain the principles, skills, assessments and practicalities of the Junior Cycle as they apply to your son/daughter.

Due to the Department of Education and Skills’ current changes to Junior Cycle, Grade Descriptors have now been included in the Christmas Exam Reports for subjects currently working within the new Junior Cycle Framework.

The following is an explanation of the Grade Descriptors, in line with the State Examination Commission’s grading of the Final Examination of Junior Cycle at the end of Third Year. These Descriptors will also be used on school reports for Junior Cycle students where appropriate.
