- Extra Curricular
Transition Year is a one year programme between the Junior and Senior cycles. It gives students an opportunity to grow, develop and learn free from the pressures of State Examinations. A wide range of subjects is offered that present a stimulating intellectual challenge and enrich the learning experience. From September 2014 Transition Year in Coláiste Muire has been compulsory for all students.
During this year the students are introduced to the Leaving Certificate and at least 40% of the timetable is devoted to the study of the academic subjects. Every subject offered for the Leaving Certificate is on the Transition Year Programme. Students must adhere to the transition year programme. Each student has the opportunity to experience a selection of options before making his final subject choice for the Leaving Certificate.
