The Fifth Year Leaving Certificate students at Collinstown Park Community College took part in the “Rayse the Game” study skills and motivation seminar with the presenter Ray Langan on Thursday last. The session focused on helping the students understand how their brain works, what type of learners they are and what type of study strategies might suit their learning style. Additional to this they were introduced to a new approach to studying based on study grids that showed them how to break topics into at most nine separate areas. The session also included some motivational and goal setting elements that should prepare the students for a successful run-up to their in-house and state examinations.
Well done to all who participated and to Mr O’Malley who organised the event.
