Signing up: Students sign up to supervised study at the beginning of each school year.
PLEASE NOTE: As there is limited space available in the 2020/2021 school year due to Covid-19 restrictions, supervised study is currently only available to Leaving Cert students.

Study is supervised by teachers and study rules apply to all students attending. Attendance is marked on study cards which are issued to each student. Students may only leave study with the permission of a parent/guardian.
Think of study as an investment in your future. A vision of success is a powerful motivator. Never be afraid to try anything, you will be amazed at how good you can be. It is essential to plan your study. There is no point in having a vague idea that ” I’ll do some study tonight” or even worse “I must start studying”.
There are three elements to study:
Junior Certificate students should be studying for 2-2½ hours per night, 5 nights a week.
Leaving Certificate students should be studying for 3-3½ hours per night, 5 nights a week. Over the weekend time should be spent reading novels or plays, updating notes or revising for upcoming tests.
Boredom is an attitude of the student, not the subject content
The teacher is responsible for teaching – text notes, visuals, board work
The student is responsible for his own learning
Homework is easier if you concentrate in class
Stop blaming others – other students, the teacher etc
This is your life. Where to you want to go?
