Second Level

Second Level and Further Education

We offer a second level education to students with physical and multiple disabilities.  As well as class teachers, the school has three part-time teachers of specialist subjects – home economics, music and PE (swimming).

Since September 2014 students in the 12-14 age group have commenced Junior Cycle, Level 2 Learning Programmes (L2LPs). Designed by the NCCA for students with particular special educational needs the programmes are designed to suit both special school and mainstream settings. The L2LPs will build upon prior learning and are designed primarily around 5 Priority Learning Units (PLUs) that focus on the social, personal and prevocational skills that prepare students for further study, for work and life. For further information see parent leaflet here

We also offer the Junior Certificate Schools Programme (JCSP) to all of our students who are encouraged to participate in a number of JCSP initiatives e.g. Drop Everything and Read (DEAR); Word Millionaire; Maths Laboratory Initiative; Visit to an Art Gallery; Christmas and Summer Celebrations and Make a Book Exhibition.

As part of the Junior Certificate Programme students may sit the Junior Certificate examination in one or more subjects.  Some students may require scribes and/or readers in order to participate in these State Examinations.

Our specially designed QQI courses prepare students for the transition from school to specialised Adult Education setting. Currently we offer QQI level 1 courses

Gaisce Awards

The President’s Award is the National Challenge Award from the President of Ireland to young people between the ages of 15 and 25 years of age.

Since 1998 over 26 students in school have undertaken the President’s Award (Gaisce). As a result, they have been presented with a Bronze medal and certificate.

It is an individual challenge, whereby students challenge themselves to improve skills in 4 areas:- Community Involvement, Personal Skill, Physical Recreation, Adventure.  Under the supervision of a P.A.L. (Presidents’ Award Leader) – challengers are set and completed over 26 weeks. Once achieved, the medal is then presented – usually by a well known figure.
