Transition Year

What is Transition Year?
Transition Year is a one year school based programme between Junior and Senior cycle. It is designed to act as a bridge between the two by facilitating the smooth transition from the more dependent learning of the Junior Cycle to the more independent self directed learning required for the Senior Cycle.

Salesian Secondary College Transition Year Mission Statement

In our overall school mission statement, “we would like our school to be a place where we promote the holistic development of young people in a happy, spontaneous and welcoming environment, in supporting our young people by the building up of positive and caring relationships with all those involved in their lives; “we shall endeavour each student to achieve his/her full potential”.

These are the founding principles and foundations for the Transition Year Programme in Salesian Secondary College. Through the involvement with the entire school community , we try to enable and encourage students to explore and develop their potential, to embrace other challenges and opportunities that life provides, both within Salesian Secondary College and in the lives that lie ahead of them all. We strive to enable them to recognise their talents and abilities, to always strive to do their very best, and avail fully of all of the opportunities and challenges that life will offer.
