JCSP Activities Feburary 2016
Our 2nd Year JCSP students will be participating in the Make a Book project from now until March. Make a Book is an annual celebration of reading, writing and the creative imagination of students and teachers involved in the Junior Certificate School Programme. The first exhibition was held in the Writers’ Museum in 1999 with just 22 schools. Since then the project has gone from strength to strength, exhibiting in Dublin City Council’s Civic Offices on Wood Quay. When the students have finished the project they will be given the opportunity to view their finished book in the Civic Offices (9th -11th March). The project can range from writing one big book or everyone writing their own individual books. There can be huge, three-dimensional books or small beautifully crafted books. The project this year will be based on the 1916 Rising. We are very much looking forward to what the students come up with!
Our 3rd Years took part in a study skills up until the Mocks. They have done a study timetable and are learning various ways of studying accross a range of subjects. This initiative will continue after the Mocks until May. We aim to give the 3rd year JCSP students the best possible preparation for their Junior Cert. We are sure they will do themselves proud!
