First Year Subject Sampling


First years have commenced their sampling of options today, Monday 13th Sept. They were issued with new timetables and this process will continue for the duration of subject rotations. 


Sampling involves giving students a taster module of Junior Cycle subjects available in the school to help them make informed choices when making their subject choices later. Subject sampling may also expose students to new subjects that they have not experienced before. All students will sample ALL subjects over the month.  There will be repetition of certain subjects because there are subjects on two different Option Lines/Blocks. 


 At the end of the sampling period Students & Parents will then pick their subjects/options for the next three years. Where possible Mr Tynan , the school Guidance Teacher,  will try to give everyone advice on picking the right subjects. Parents will receive a report highlighting individual strengths & weaknessess based on CAT4 testing. More information on this will follow.

w2p logo

 Dear Parents,

Our aim is to become a cashless school over time and to this end we use Way2Pay, Ireland's fastest growing Parental Payment System. While Way2Pay is designed to help schools manage, receipt, track and audit school money, it also provides a comprehensive system for parents. Parents can enjoy the ease of paying by text, and/or an online dashboard with lots of information, receipt, history etc. 

The Student Contribution is an "all in one payment" of €150 for all Junior Cycle Students and 6th Yr students. The TY Student Contribution is €250 and the 5th Year & LCA 1 contribution is €110 reflecting changes to the book rental scheme. The Student Contribution includes book rental, personal insurance, locker rental , school journal, printing/admin charges and web text costs. Access to these resources will be given following full payment. I would ask you to make this “all in one payment” online at www.way2pay.ie by 1st October 2021. If there are financial difficulties, please contact the Principal to discuss an alternative payment plan.

The all in one payment can be paid in installments online, it does not have to be a once off upfront payment.

Way2Pay offers support directly to parents so if you are having any difficulty using any of the options above please get in touch directly with their help desk.
