We are delighted to announce that Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh has been chosen to offer Politics & Society (September 2016) as a subject in Leaving Certificate. 
A new specification for Politics and Society will be introduced in September 2016 to a small cohort of schools who have the capacity and interest to introduce the subject as an optional Leaving Certificate subject. Politics and Society aims to develop the student’s ability to be a reflective and active citizen, in a way that is informed by the insights and skills of social and political science.
Our dearly departed and much loved Board of Management Chairperson, Mr. Frank Prendergast would be very proud with this development. 

The introduction of the specification is part of the Department of Education and Skills commemoration of 1916 and its commitment to education for sustainable development.
