A Study Skills Workshop took place in the school for our 1st Year Students on 7th February. The students were introduced to the whole concept of learning and how it links to their brain and memory. The programme covered various study skills including time management, organisation and effective homework habits. A corresponding ‘Parent Power Workshop’ was held on the same evening for parents of all year groups. Feedback received was very positive from both workshops.
