St. Josephs have built up some extremely high quality DE links to their subjects in both Junior and Senior Cycle subjects, from languages and science to politics and religious studies. Transition Years are lucky enough to have the following to whet their DE appetite: European Studies, Politics & Society, Community, World Affairs and Future Voices. Some of the most interesting examples of DE in the curriculum in St. Joseph’s include: exploringinfographs in English, examining how war affects women, as well as powerful discussions on patriarchy. As part of coding, students are currently developing an app related to climate change, which we will eagerly await for them to complete. In religious studies, themes of debt, child solders and conflict minerals have been explored. And in Business Studies, students have studied ethics and social responsibility, environmental concerns as a result of globalisation, protectionism and barriers to trade.
