Social awareness activities are an important part of the Transition Year Programme. Many individuals volunteer for a variety of organizations and charities during the year. In addition, each of the tutor groups organize an event in aid of a chosen charity which is selected by the full year group. Each year the students nominate two charities will all monies raised being split evenly between both (previous support has been given to Aware, Concern, Pieta House, Irish Cancer Society, SVP to name but a few).
Our students are given an opportunity to voice their opinions and show how mature they can be when discussing national topics.
