Transition Year Overview

It is designed to act as a bridge between the two by facilitating the smooth transition from the more dependant learning of the Junior Cycle to the more independent  self-directed learning required for the Senior Cycle

BT Young Scientist 2019

What a year it’s been at the BT Young Scientist Awards for Coláiste Muire. Shane Williams was highly commended for his study on sexual orientation and drug and alcohol abuse.  Rachel Cotter and Jack Mullen have been chosen to represent Ireland in Copenhagen at the Danish young scientist, and took second in their category ( biological and ecological intermediate group) for their study from fish to fork, ingestion of microplastics by commercial fish off the Irish coast. Peter Lehane thought his work was done when he won 1st place in his category, intermediate individual social and behavioural. But it wasn’t, he won the best overall project in all of social and behavioural for his study media meddling with memory – an investigation into how it affects your recollection.
We are so proud of all students who represented Coláiste Muire this year; Olivia Gavin, Róisín Duffy, Shane Williams, Jack Mullen, Rachel Cotter and Peter Lehane.
Most importantly of all, a huge thankyou to Ms McMahon and Ms Lehane who devoted countless hours of their time to help our students.

Transition Years Driving module

TY students visited the Munster Driving Campus on Thursday, 22nd November.

Students were given a preporitry course for the Driver Theory Test. They tested their reaction times for stopping in an emergency. Best times were Patrick Cotter, Ben Ward and Sally McCarthy.

Every student got the opportunity to drive a car around the off-road track. A presentation on the workings of an engine was given. Student raced each other in changing a wheel.

This was an excellent introduction to driving for Transtion Year students. The importance and implications of road safety were continually stressed. We wish the students the best in a long and safe driving career.
