๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽ“MAKING THE PERFECT STUDY PLAN๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽ“

1. Use a TEMPLATE with big squares so you have space to add enough details. Be neat & tidy. Have a slot for homework each day and then one for study.

2. Be REALISTIC with your time!! First of all fill the slots you know you can’t use eg extra curricular activities, grinds, other events or commitments. This may change from week to week which is fine. Choose time slots that suit you and your life. Try to start into your homework soon after school- the longer you leave it the harder it will be to get started. The one below is catered to DSA members and is available on all resource shelves for students in our study.

3. When filling out the study slots, BE SPECIFIC. Don’t just write ‘Biology’ – write the exact topic you plan to study eg ‘Osmosis’ and the exam questions you plan to do. Use @studyclix for specific exam topics and questions.

4. Use PAST EXAM RESULTS and tests to find your weaknesses. Tackle these topics head on. Start with these areas on your study plan. Don’t just study what you are good at. .

5. CHANGE IT UP daily. Don’t study the same subject all week. You will lose focus and interest.

6. PRIORITIZE- if you have exams or assignments coming up, factor these into your weekly study instead of extra topics. Don’t overload yourself.

7. CHECKLISTS-Have a checklist of topics for each subject and mark then off as you do them. This will show you that you’re getting through them and build your motivation and confidence. Also highlight your timetable as you finish topics and Q’s-no better feeling!

Set yourself a GOAL

GOALSย ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿ’ช

As we move closer to exams it is normal for stress to increase and, in some cases, motivation to decrease. How do we alleviate this?

Over the next 4 weeks you have to have a GOAL to work towards.ย โžก๏ธโžก๏ธโžก๏ธ
Visualise your future. Ask yourself where you want to see yourself in 6 months time. Why are you doing this? For yourself, to get to college, to travel?
Most importantly, what do you need to do in the next 4 weeks to reach this goal? Write down that goal. Make it real.

Work on your strengths and add to them; if your mind focuses on your weaknesses and negatives you will never succeed.

To grow and progress it takes:
70% effort/ hard work
20% attitude
10% ability/ intelligence

Visualise your DREAM, set your GOAL, PLAN your study for the next few weeks, work hard for the last slog and make it REALITY.

๐ŸŒŸย ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸDSA- Building Young Entrepreneurs๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸย ๐ŸŒŸ

We had a wonderful afternoon with the students ofย St. Mochta’s NS, Louth Village. Such a colourful school with the hallways lined in artwork!๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ

We talked everything business and even got round to the important topic of transitioning from primary to secondary school. I think we put their minds at ease on some curiosities and worries.

Thanks to the principal Mr. Martin for inviting us in! He even jumped in for a wee boomerang at the end!ย ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

What a day!
We got to be the Dragons for once!ย ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜‚

These AMAZING 6th class students of St. Francis NS Blackrock pitched their business ideas to us today in the exact format of the Dragons’ Den TV show and OMG did they blow us out of the water.

Company Names:
“Slick Wicks”
“Smooth Dudes”
“Just Incase”
“C- Chains”
“CATS Jam”
“Scrumptious Delights”

Not only were their business ideas so well thought out and innovative, they were able to answer difficult questions about profit margins, unique selling points, marketing and packaging- questions that would stump adults. They did themselves, their parents and their teacher, Ms. McKevitt, so proud!
Unvelievable talent.
