School Time-tabled Week

Over the past number of years there have been increasing demands on schools to introduce a range of courses / programmes to educate young people on such issues as substance abuse, information technology, education in sexuality and citizenship. New programmes such as CSPE, SPHE, Pastoral Care and Computer Studies have been introduced.
Our timetable week of 40 class periods allows us to meet these needs.
