Here's a snapshot of what some of our participants say...

Mr Paul Fiorentini (Principal)

“The whole event was very organised. The facilitator was excellent and had a great rapport with all the students. Each session was extremely well structured with a very impressive use of visuals and both interactive and individual learning experiences. Student and parent feedback on the programme was very positive. Students felt they had developed new study skills and revision techniques and many commented that for them the use of memory techniques and mind maps were especially effective”

Carndonagh CS CARNDONAGH (DFR)

Geoff Dunn MBE (Principal)

“I was very impressed by the content, delivery and activities which our senior pupils enjoyed. Indeed, the underpinning growth mindset philosophy was clearly impressed on the pupils in a variety of ways and matched our ethos and desire to promote aspiration to all pupils in an inclusive and fun way. I feel this programme has been a further beneficial strategy to help P7 pupils overcome fears about transferring to their post primary schools.”
