Subject Choice Information Booklet

While there is much uncertainty around many aspects of our lives, it is necessary for us to plan ahead and look forward to your son’s transition from primary to secondary in Marist College.

We are keenly aware that the last few months have resulted in great upheaval and change for your son, many of the normal occasions, traditions and ceremonies that we associate with finishing primary school have had to be paused or cancelled. We will be very mindful of this when your son starts with us and we will be tailoring or induction process to reflect this.

We had intended to continue the Subject Option Taster Programme for the first 7 weeks of First Year. Normally, your son would then have picked 2 subjects from a group of 5 to continue along with the rest of his subjects to Junior Cycle.

Unfortunately, due to the uncertainty created by the Coronavirus we will not be able to proceed with the Taster Programme. 

The purpose of this page is to provide you with information that should prove useful in making decisions regarding Junior Certificate subjects. To complete the process for Junior Cycle subject selection, please follow the steps below:
