T2 have been enjoying the Shared Education programme with Rosstulla. Last term we went bowling to Glengormley Sportsbowl. This term we are going to Monkstown Boxing club. We are enjoying making new friends and learning new skills.
T2 is a hard working class with 8 young men and 2 young women. Our aim is to develop functional life skills. We will be using public transport, handling money, managing and working on the extended school fruit and gardening projects and completing paid work experience.
In T2 we aim to promote independence and one of the ways in which we do this is by allowing the pupils to manage a personal bank account and a savings account. These accounts will belong solely to the pupils. It is important to the pupils to learn when and where money is spent throughout the week and what is it spent on. We will be working hard on our budgeting, estimation and developing functional skills.
Our motto is “Work hard, Play Hard!”
