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.
Scoil Dara's Autumn Awards ceremony took place on the 30th of November last.

The language club is for Scoil Dara students who are not native English speakers and want to practice/improve their English skills through games and speaking with others in a fun, informal setting
The French club will be a fun way for Scoil Dara students to learn a little more about the French culture through songs, games, movie clips, social media and much more. It will also give students a chance to share their knowledge of the French culture and practice their French language skills.
