Transition Year Retreat

Recently Transition Year students attended a retreat afternoon on the school campus facilitated by Mary O'Brien, Kathleen Quirke and Fr. M Liston.

It was an immensely enjoyable way to spend an afternoon together.

The theme of this years retreat was encouragement and how this finds expression in prayer and supporting each other.

Reading Initiative

Innovative Joint Initiative between Co. Limerick V.E.C. & National branch of JCSP (Junior Certificate Schools Programme) - 2011/2012 Academic Year
All Coláiste Íde agus Iosef first year students are taking part in this initiative in response to the "National Strategy to improve Literacy & Numeracy among children and young people 2011 - 2020".  Currently underway as and from Monday 16th January 2012 is a six week "Reading Challenge Programme" where first year students are challenged to read a book per week, purely for pleasure.  With the support from voluntary involvement by the local community and a further initiative applied for under the JCSP Programme the Abbeyfeale Active Retirement group are coming in to our school for an hour per week to provide one to one reading to selected 1st year students.This is an initiative lead by the JCSP team in the school, ran by the English department and supported by all staff.   It is envisaged and hoped that reading levels among all our first year students will see an improvement and that we will collectively develop an interest and desire for reading among our students.  This is just one of the many initiatives being run as part of the JCSP programme that has at its heart "that all young people are capable of achieving real success in school".
