Pre Leaving Certificate Summer Course (16 – 18 year olds)

Great option of a Dianchúrsa (more class time) for Senior students in Coláiste Néifinn. Coláiste Néifinn offers a Dianchúrsa option for Senior Students. This means instead of doing the 3 morning classes alone, students can do 3 additional classes in the afternoon. This has been extremely beneficial to those students who want to do a Pre-Leaving Certificate Course. It covers oral work, essays, poetry, prose, comprehensions and the listening. Students cover double the material in this option and also cover more grammar. Students grasp how to answer exam style questions. The start time for the course is 10.00am and finishing time is 4.00pm.
