As part of national “stand up week”, Arklow CBS organised a “rainbow day” on Friday November 19th. This was a non-uniform day where all students and staff were encouraged to wear colourful clothes in rainbow shades to celebrate our inclusive school community. The pride flag flew proudly outside our school for the week. Well done to all involved.

We had some extremely productive first, second and third years at our study skills workshops last week.

The workshops were delivered by Claire Cummins from Study Focus Limited. All the students found these workshops highly beneficial as they learned many new skills outlined below which will enhance their study techniques.

  • Listening techniques.
  • Note taking techniques.
  • Reading techniques.
  • Creating an ideal study environment.

  • Study timetables.

All students received a workbook and notes to compliment the workshop. The students now have all the necessary tools and information to study more effectively.
