Nenagh College Business teacher, Catherine O’Keeffe, has been selected by National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) to advise on assessment work in Junior Cert Business Studies. Ms. O’Keeffe submitted some samples of her student’s work for publication on the NCCA website.
The publication of the work, by Nenagh College students, will enable the NCCA to identify and demonstrate the possibilities and approaches to Classroom based assessments and are intended to identify and indicate national standards. These examples, of Nenagh College students’ work, will be used by teachers, across the country, as part of their professional development.
School Principal, Damien Kennedy, acknowledged Ms. O’Keeffe’s work in this area and congratulated both her and her students’ for the selection of the work, as exemplars of best practice on a national scale. He further noted that the enthusiastic engagement of all Nenagh College teaching staff with new Junior Cycle was reflected in this recognition.
