Secondary School Curriculum/Booklists
2017 – 2018
Our curriculum focuses the student on their own learning and personal growth. From the Junior Cycle, through Transition Year and on to the Leaving Certificate, there are rich and varied opportunities for success in The Teresian School.
Group and personal advice on career choice and vocational guidance are provided throughout the school. We assess students in a variety of ways and seek to acknowledge and reward student achievement in all areas. We promote assessment for learning. There are in-school examinations at the end of the Autumn and Summer terms as well Mock Examinations for 3rd and 6th Years at the end of January.
We report regularly to parents. There are detailed reports in December, at Easter and at the end of the Summer Term as well as summary reports at Mid-Term in October and February. Parents may meet with teachers to discuss their daughter’s progress at any time and there is a scheduled Parent/Teacher meeting.
