History is taught as a core subject in St Joseph’s Mercy Navan from 1st to 3rd year, and is one of the Leaving Certificate subjects available to senior students.


The study of history enhances the development of the individual; it promotes an open-minded approach, an awareness of diversity, an understanding and respect for people of other cultures, languages and religions, and an appreciation of the interdependence of nations.


The skills acquired by students studying history include the development of critical thinking, the ability to assemble convincing material to develop an argument or point of view; the ability to write; speak and think with clarity and authority on many and varied topics.

Further information about the content of the Junior and Senior Cycle courses can be found on this website.  Should you have any further questions, feel free to contact the school through the menu at the top of the page.
