Study Skills Seminar

Study Skills is a new initiative in Scoil Dara set up to assist first year students with studying. It is run by teachers, free of charge, who will create a relaxed and informal atmosphere where students can explore new ways of studying. We will help students to identify their preferred method of study and introduce them to various study techniques (e.g. MindMaps, Flow Charts, Concise Note-taking, etc) which can be used in any subject.
