New opening times for Scoil Dara's School Library

TY students (4C) recently completed a short film for entry to the FTA French film competition. Well done to all involved for their engagement and hard work.
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.
To aid students’ understanding of democracy and the Irish government, Fine Gael Deputy Bernard Durkin recently visited Ms Cooke's 2E CSPE class and provided a most informative account of life as an Irish politician.
