JCSP Initiative

Junior Certificate School Programme (JCSP)

The Junior Certificate Schools Programme is an intervention into the Junior Cycle. All our Junior Cycle students participate in the JCSP programme.

The JCSP Programme attempts to help young people experience success and develop a positive self-image by providing a curriculum and assessment framework suitable to their needs.

The programme aims to ensure that students actively participate in their learning, make progress and build on their achievements. The programme also aims to develop students’ literacy, numeracy, communication and group work skills.

On completion of the programme, students receive a profile which is an official record of their achievements from the Department of Education and Skills.

Participating in JCSP enables students to benefit from the many funded initiatives.. 

Blood brothers 

JCSP English students from 2nd and 3rd year took a trip with their English teachers to the Bord Gais Energy Theatre to watch a production of Willy Russell's Blood Brothers. It was a very enjoyable trip for all the students who got to see a play they were studying on the big stage. 


Butlers Chocolate Factory Visit

Second and Third Year JCSP Business students paid a recent visit to Butler's Chocolate Factory in Dublin as part of their studies on enterprise. It was an informative and beneficial experience for the students to see what is involved in setting up and running a business.

Shannon River Adventure Centre

JCSP students from 1st and 2nd  went on a team building outing to Shannon Rive Adventure Centre in Rooskey last year. They got to try out water sports such as kayaking and paddle boarding and also dry land activities like archery and wall climbing.
