There are several cookery schools across Dublin and Ireland running cookery programmes specifically designed for Transition Years as well as general courses where students of our age are encouraged to attend.
These cookery courses are so much fun and you learn new skills that will stand to you forever!
No matter what your schedule is like there is always a course that you can fit in, whether it is a one day course, afterschool course for a month or even for the full year!
We really recommend trying one of these courses and I'm sure you know they're not just for girls, boys can learn a lot from these courses too!!
