Welcome to the Transition Year 2014 -2015 page

YSI

YSI (Young Social Innovators) enables young people to grapple with difficult social issues, advocating reform and advancing change. Every year we try to get our TY students involved in this competition as we feel it is important for our students to be able voice their opinions on topics that affect them.

This year our TY classes are taking the topics; gender inequality in G.A.A., the pursuit of happiness, sign language and communicating with deaf people and the awareness of your road number, they are exploring these topics in order to make a change in their community.

All of the classes attended their first competition in Cork on Wednesday the 11th of March. This included a speak-out that lasted two minutes which highlighted the ideas and actions made to change their community.
