The aims and intended outcomes of junior cycle emphasise the importance of students experiencing a broad, balanced and coherent programme of study across a wide range of curriculum areas in order to prepare them for transition to senior cycle education. Currently this is achieved by ensuring that students encounter an educational programme that covers a number of areas of experience.
Here at Chanel college we offer 1st year students the opportunity to sample subjects before they have to choose them. Sampling of a number of subjects will take place between August and the October mid-term break when students will choose two subjects from the list below.
I French I Spanish I Material Technology I Wood I Technology Graphics I Art I
