Senior Cycle Options Information Evening

On Wednesday 7th March Mr. James Williams and Ms. Siobhan Landers hosted an information evening to 3rd year and Transition Year students and their parents outlining the options that are available to them in Senior Cycle at Scoil Ruáin. Information was given on Transition year, Leaving Certificate Applied Programme (LCA), Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP) and the subjects available at Senior Cycle. There was an information booklet distributed to all in attendance that outlined the individual subjects and their relevance for 3rd Level entry. Feedback from both parents and students was very positive and it proved to be a very worthwhile and thought provoking evening.

On Wednesday March 7th, 20 Junior Cert History students from Scoil Ruáin travelled to Coláiste Phobail Ros Cré for the Tipperary ETB Junior Cert History Quiz. Scoil Ruáin and 7 other schools from across the county competed and made up a total of 28 teams of over 110 students. The teams battled through 5 rounds of themed history questions. Beating close competition, the winning team comprised of Scoil Ruáin’s Jack Trehy, Kyle Shelly, Eabha Fitzgerald and Luke Fox. Well done to the winning team and to all involved. A huge thanks to Coláiste Phobail Ros Cré’s History Department for organising and hosting.
