At St Joseph’s CBS, we offer all our 1st Year students a taster programme for the full school year. They experience every subject on offer for their Junior Certificate so that they can make an informed decision at the end of their first year. In the Spring of 1st Year, they are asked to select the three optional subjects that they wish to study for Junior Certificate examination. These are studied along with their core subjects.

The school hosts an Information Evening for 1st Year Parents to help with subject selection. The Career Guidance teacher, together with the Principal and Deputy Principal will be in attendance on the night to help with any queries parents may have. Parents are asked to sign off on their son’s final subject selection. The subject option bands are directly influenced by the students’ requests each year.
