On the 11th September 2023 during period 1 and period 2, the 6th years partook in a Study Skills Workshop in the dining area. The workshop was run by Shane from Inspire Education. He started the morning with a self reflection of students' hopes and fears of the Leaving Certificate. Shane then progressed onto studying techniques. Many different areas were covered such as repetition, planning, habit building, positive mindsets, knowledge organisers and even learning about sleep. The students also participated in different activities such as memory games and a pop quiz. The main aim of this workshop was to encourage students to study more effectively and help them perform to the best of their abilities academically. It was a very beneficial workshop with lots of practical tips for their upcoming exams.
