Transition Year 2015/16

Ms Nollaig Sheehan, Transition Year Co-Ordinator and her students have been very busy over the past weeks with lots of planning and preparation for the year ahead. In keeping with the Catholic ethos of St Augustine’s, mass was celebrated by Fr Gerry Horan OSA with the TY class of 2015/16 in St Monica’s Chapel. Work experience for all students began last Friday; Ms Sheehan wishes every success to her students with their work experience for the coming year.

Transition Year students enjoyed a fun day on a climbing wall supplied by Ardmore Adventures.
