Go for it!  But realise that its not going to be easy and things take time and there are LOTS of sacrifices to make. Also make sure you learn from your mistakes - because you will make them. It is really only a mistake if you don't learn from it.

Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Classical Studies




 

Junior Cycle - Classical Studies

Subject Group: Humanities
These subjects explore the ways in which humans live and communicate in the world. Human life is examined by looking at our past, our present and into our future. These subjects help people to express themselves clearly and develop their reasoning ability.

Brief Description:

In Classical Studies, you will study the classical civilisations of Ancient Greece and Rome, which continue to inspire and stimulate today's generation as they have every generation since classical times. You will learn how they continue to help to shape the Ireland you live in today.


How will Classical Studies be useful to me?

Classical Studies will be useful to you in:

  • helping you solve problems and thinking for yourself when working with others
  • giving you a broader understanding of Europe and Ireland
  • expanding your vocabulary and general knowledge.

You can also continue studying Classical Studies at third level when you leave school.



Note: From September 2017, first year students will take a combined single subject called Classics, in place of the current subjects of Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Studies.
