Transition Year is an important part of a Blackrock College education and takes place in 4th Year, the academic year after the Junior Certificate and before the Leaving Certificate Programme, which runs through 5th Year and 6th Year.
During Transition Year, students are encouraged to develop their knowledge and skills in a range of areas including community awareness, entrepreneurship, environmental awareness, social interaction, languages, computer skills and so on.
This is done through a range of activities, many of them charitable or community outreach in nature, including participation in the President’s Gaisce Award, the Goal/Aidlink St Patrick’s Day Badge project, Blackrock College Radio, Chinese Language Classes, ECDL, Dragon’s Den, the Green School Committee and many others.
