The purpose of our TY music module is to introduce and foster the study and practice of where the technology and music worlds collide. In transition year music, students will learn to manipulate music by exploring the concepts of electronic music composition, and sound engineering.
Students learn about the four stages of professional music recording projects: recording, editing, mixing and mastering, gaining some of the skills needed to work in the music industry.
Our transition year music module explores the fundamentals of creating and organizing music in a project-based class in which students will use different software to create and arrange music for a variety of different platforms including film, media and video games.
The art department offers a unique creative space for TY students to explore, discover, experiment and express themselves while learning about real careers in the creative industry.
Through art, students can learn how to understand the visual culture of the world around them and develop problem solving skills.
Students will work both individually and in groups completing innovative projects in animation and graphic design.
MUN: model united nations
Model United Nations (MUN) is the simulation of the activities of the United Nations, with the Security Council, the General Assembly and its Commissions. It is a “learning by doing” method of studying the United Nations. Participants of MUN assume the roles of representatives of member States of the United Nations and consider items from the vast agenda of the United Nations.
The MUN programme is a great way for students to learn about international relations and to gain a better sense of what a varied and fascinating world we live in.
Participation in MUN is an unforgettable learning experience that not only immerses young people in the study and discussion of global issues, but also encourages the development of skills which they will find useful throughout their lives. It enhances student’s capacity to engage in problem-solving, teaches aspects of conflict resolution and communication skills. Furthermore it creates the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.
During this module students will learn how to prepare for a “conference” in Dublin or further afield.
Students will research the United Nations, research their allocated countries and stances on numerous topics depending on their committees; learn how to research and produce a position paper and most importantly a Resolution.
Students will also develop their public speaking, communication, collaboration, risk raking, principled and Knowledge skills throughout this exciting and fast paced module!
