Ballymakenny College News

Transition Year Fees

We want our first ever Transition Year to be a fantastic experience for every student. Our research has told us that €375 is excellent value for money compared to other schools. Unfortunately your child will not be able to participate in Transition Year fully if this fee is not paid.

The closing date for the TY deposit of €150 was the 1st of May, 2017. A reminder to those who have not yet paid their deposit, please can you do so at your earliest convenience. A trip has been organised in the first two weeks on our return to school. We will not be in a position to send your son/daughter on this trip if this deposit has not been paid.

The outstanding balance of €225 is due by Friday 27th of October. You have the option of paying online through VS Ware or by dropping the fee into Susan in the office. We would recommend you use our online facility. The convenience of the online facility is that you can make payments in instalments. If you do not know your VS Ware password, please get in touch with Susan and she will text it to you immediately.

If parent(s)/guardians have issues concerning this fee they can contact the principal directly.

  • School jumper with blue strips
  • Pack of t-shirts (red, blue or white)
