The Make it Happen Day is a customised, motivational and study skills seminar for senior cycle students who have previously participated in the Learning and Study Skills programme for examination students.

This programme consolidates the core study strategies along with including extra elements supporting students in their studying such as learning styles, active reading and well-being. Examples from across the range of Leaving Certificate subjects are used to support the learning.
