Homework, Homework Club & Evening Study

In O'Connell Secondary School we understand that it is a lot easier for students to continue their studying in school rather than when they get home. Home offers distractions and options that are not present in school. Our students can avail of homework club here. We provide a hot drink and a snack for the students after school. Then Homework Club begins which is supervised by a qualified teacher and an SNA. These two members of staff are on hand to help any student with questions they may have about their homework.

This is a great way for students to prepare themselves for school the following day. When we surveyed students about Homework Club, they mentioned the feeling of happiness when they come to school with all their work done. This service is such an easy one to provide and yet means so much to our students!
