THE JUNIOR CERTIFICATE
Aims and Principles
Breadth and balance
At this stage of their school careers, all students should have a wide range of educational experiences. Particular attention must be given to reinforcing and developing the skills of numeracy, literacy and oracy. Particular emphasis
should be given to social and environmental education, science and technology and modern languages.
Curriculum provision should address the immediate and prospective needs of the young person, in the context of the cultural, economic and social environment.
Every young person should be challenged to achieve the highest possible standards of excellence, with due regard to different aptitudes and abilities and to international comparisons.

The JCPESS is facilitating an electronic mailing or discussion list, to facilitate the exchange of opinions and ideas among physical education teachers. The idea is to provide a supported community where teachers learn from each other, can share resources, expertise and other benefits.
