Second/Third Year Planning

There are 3 active circulars relating to prescribed material for Junior Cycle English:

Circular 32/2014 for current 3rd yr students

Circular 64/2017 for current 2nd yr students

Circular 37/2018 for students who commence junior cycle September 2018 - Sept 2020.

These circulars are available  at http://education.ie 

From September 2017 onwards, all teachers are entitled to a reduction in teaching time as outlined in DES Circular 0015/2017. Here, we provide some suggestions for things you might consider as part of the range of individual and collaborative professional activities you will engage in during this time.
