I would advise them to get themselves physically fit and to maintain it. I would also say that a sense of humour is very important and the ability to laugh at themselves. They should have self discipline and be prepared to accept imposed discipline. Punctuality is very important as is respect for others. If they had sporting interests that would be a help.

Jewish Studies




 

Junior Cycle - Jewish 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:
Jewish Studies seeks to promote an understanding of Judaism as a major world religion and to give students an appreciation of its historical, literary and cultural contribution to the world.
How will Jewish Studies be useful to me?
Students taking Jewish Studies will develop an understanding and appreciation of different beliefs, peoples and cultures and a tolerance and respect for the values and beliefs of all.

In today's increasingly diverse culture, it is important to have an understanding of the different cultural and religious traditions found not just in Ireland, but in Europe and the wider world.

Jewish Studies also contributes to the development of skills such as historical and literary investigation, working with evidence, information processing, argumentation, critical thinking and analysis. It has links with other subjects such as Civics, Social SPHE, Religious Education, and History.
