Welcome to Virtual Induction at The Comp!
Hello, my name is Mary Costello, I am Principal here in St Patrick’s Comprehensive School and it is my very great pleasure to welcome you to our Virtual Induction programme.
In securing a place in St Patrick’s Comprehensive School you can now move on to the next stage in the process – modern foreign language and option subjects selection.
This is an exciting time when all the educational opportunities ahead of you become a reality.
Our unique Induction Programme offers students the opportunity to experience ‘a day in the life of a Comp student.’
The global COVID-19 pandemic in 2021 prevented us from running our traditional Induction programme however in true #CompStyle we have seized upon this challenge as an opportunity to develop this Virtual Induction programme.
In the links below you now have access to individual subject presentations for all our Junior Cycle option subjects and our two modern foreign languages – French & German.
I recommend that you watch each video, read the accompanying Junior Cycle Subject Prospectus and visit the Junior Cycle section of our school website. Review our Senior Cycle Subject Prospectus which is available on our website and explores progression opportunities for each subject.
These will provide you with all the information you need to make informed decisions about your option subjects and foreign language choices for Junior Cycle.
There is also a link below if you wish to submit any specific queries – they will be directed to subject teachers or Career Guidance as appropriate.
Please remember to:
- Complete all preferences from 1 to 8 – 1 for your top preference and 8 for your lowest preference.
- Submit your preference form on time.
All incoming first years must first fill in the 'update details' section here that updates their details on the school VSware system. Please click on the button here to update details and then download the application form or call the office and a form can be sent to you.
