Junior Cycle

The Junior Cert course offers a great variety of subject matter, with the opportunity to develop a broad range of knowledge and skills. In physical geography, you learn about the earth's surface and the workings of our life support system, atmosphere and climate. Under social geography, you examine issues of population, settlement patterns, and urbanisation. In economic geography, you will learn how there are different sectors in our economy and how inequalities emerge. Ordnance Survey map reading and interpretation of aerial photographs may be linked to any part of the course.
