Learning and Study Skills - Senior Cycle

This workshop is designed for 5th and 6th year students, introducing them to the mindset to achieve and skills to succeed at Senior Cycle.
This study skills programme is designed to support students at Senior Cycle to prepare for the Leaving Certificate examination. Along with motivating students to engage fully in their study, they look at how to cope better with stress and develop resilience. The students are also brought through our unique study system – POKER.
To reinforce the learning after the workshop and assist students in organising their study, each student receives a copy of our Senior Cycle Study Journal.
