Fifth year students @ SVSS attended a study seminar in CIT recently. As a result, the students gained a valuable insight into the world of study and how the mind works in processing and disseminating information. A series of fast paced workshops enabled the students to explore a range of topics associated with improving their study techniques. They learnt how to maintain a healthy body and brain, and how the brain remembers information. They used assistive technology to enhance their learning. All agreed it was an invaluable insight into developing study skills which will stand them in good stead for their Leaving Certificate and for study at third level. Students were accompanied by their Study Skills teacher, Ms. Dodd.
