Our Study Co-Ordinator's Welcome,
At St. Caimin's we feel that it is important to support all curricular activities in the fullest way possible. To aid teaching and learning in the school we place a strong emphasis on the role of study. We offer after schools study programmes for all students. We believe that having this in place can be helpful to students but we also recognise that students also appreciate some of our study skills initiatives also. Here we endeavour to guide students on strategies that can be employed to structure their study activities.
