Assessment in Transition Year:

Assessment in Transition Year is based both on continuous assessment and Semester Examinations. Each Subject area has been allocated Credits – Credits will be awarded in most instances for attendance/participation with additional credits being allocated for assignments/presentations/examinations etc. At the Transition Year Graduation students will graduate will excellence/merit and participation certification.

PLEASE NOTE:

You will need at least two copies for each subject. Some subjects will also need hardback copies. It is a good idea to buy some ring binders and poly-pockets as well-this helps you keeps extra notes safe and organised.

  • You will need two whiteboard markers.
  • School journal will be available during induction week, paid for as part of your voluntary contribution.
  • Try to purchase A4 size copies with the plastic covers as these are not as heavy as the hardback copies.
  • Students will work throughout the year on their Transition Year Portfolio. This will be a combined digital and physical folder. So a folder/scrapbook needs to be purchased for this purpose.
