Geography Project Winners 201703 Feb 2017
All Second Year students at St. Joseph’s CBS Secondary School Nenagh undertake a Farm or Factory Project, in which the students, with guidance from their teacher, research and compile a detailed project about a Farm or Factory of their own choosing.
The standard was incredibly high this year with some very detailed projects on many of the farms in the North Tipperary area and factories both from within Ireland and overseas. Every student put a lot of effort into their project and improved their IT skills by typing the project and including photographs and maps of the Farm or Factory on which they had undertaken the study.
Each student who completed a Farm/Factory Project receives a Certificate to acknowledge the time and effort they put into this worthwhile project. It is great practice for those students who will be keeping on Geography as a Leaving Certificate subject as LC Geography consists of a Fieldwork component worth 20% of the overall marks. Furthermore, there were prizes for the top five students from each second year class group.
A 1st prize winner was chosen from each class, they were, James Meagher, St. Christopher’s, James Finn, St. Canice’s, Níosa Minogue, St. Cormac’s.
