TY Tour Guiding Programme

On the 9th November twenty of our Transition Year Students visited Glasnevin Cemetery and learned the basics in becoming a tour guide. This programme is designed to give students an experience of the real life  world of tour guiding. Students have the opportunity to develop skills in research and public speaking while building self-confidence.Students were taught the 6 rules of customer service and gained an invaluable insight into how tour guides operate. The students will revisit Glasnevin Cemetery in the coming weeks and will present a tour of Glasnevin to their teachers and classmates. They are really excited about undertaking their research and preparing for this next trip.



History and Health at UCD

On the 19th October eighteen Transition Year students attended the launch of the newly established History and Health competition in UCD.

This competition takes an interdisciplinary approach to examining the fields of History and Science and requires that students work in cross-curricular teams. By working in this manner it is expected that students will gain a greater depth of insight into both fields.

Speakers during the day included Donal O'Shea, of 'Operation Transformation' fame, and the students concluded their day with a tour of UCD campus. The campus was hugely impressive and many of the students are now researching courses at UCD.
