Junior Cycle

The syllabus drawn up by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) allows flexibility in regard to the actual presentation of its content according to particular Christian denominations and faith traditions. The opportunity, afforded by the syllabus, for the study and reflection of Christianity is most important for the faith development of our catholic students. Junior Cycle Religious Education (JCRE) can be taught from three approaches: 1. Following the JCRE syllabus and presenting students for examination 2. Following the JCRE syllabus and not presenting for state examination 3. Junior Certificate Schools Programme.
