Dear Parents,

Our 5th Year Subject Choice Seminar for parents of TY students & 3rd Year students (progressing straight to 5th Year) takes place on Thursday 12 January at 7.30pm. Our Career Guidance counsellor Mr O Leary and our Deputy Principal for Senior Cycle Mr. McGrath will provide parents and students with advice on how to make informed decisions around subject options for Senior Cycle. You will also receive guidance on how best to access relevant information around subject specifications and requirements for 3rd level courses. GCC is proud of the range of subjects we offer our students at Senior Cycle. This helps to ensure that students are studying subjects they are interested in and enjoy, and promotes strong engagement from students in their programmes of learning.

The link to the meeting and the relevant codes to access the meeting were texted to parents on Tuesday 10 January. This was also shared with students via their Google Classroom.
