In addition to this the Guidance Department is excited to host a Study Skills Seminar for parents on Tuesday 12th of November in The O'Reilly Theatre (7:30 pm). The seminar will be given by Student Enrichment Services and the aim is to equip parents with the skills and confidence they need to best support their son in his studies at home.  If you would like to attend this seminar please email to book your place by Friday 8th of November.

We thank you in advance for your support and we really hope that some of the talks and workshops will inspire students to get into a regular and organised study pattern early in the year.
