Leaving Cert Applied Programme

Leaving Cert Applied Programme

At Baltinglass we understand the objectives of students who take the physical activity for leisure and recreation module in the Leaving Cert Applied Program (LCA).

Our Explorer Programme is designed to provide the setting for those who choose the physical activity for leisure and recreation module. Our hope is that students achieve a new sense of themselves, and their abilities in a new and exciting environment. Outdoor Education will deliver all the situations requiring teamwork, leadership, and progression.

Skill acquisition is a fundamental part of all our programmes, however we place equal emphasis on enjoyment and thus the desire to include outdoor pursuits as a leisure choice for the future.
