Intensive Leaving Certificate Course

February Mid-Term 2022

We understand that for a lot of students the annual Coláiste Chamuis experience is an important rite of passage and a highlight of their year. Unfortunately, this was not possible in 2020 or in 2021. We do not want these students to miss out. We have therefore come up with a solution we hope will temper their disappointment – a unique course that gives students the opportunity to return to Coláiste Chamuis one last time prior to sitting their leaving cert exams.

Subject to Government COVID-19 guidelines, Coláiste Chamuis is intending to deliver our residential exam focused Leaving Cert Course in February 2022 starting the first Saturday of the mid-term break (arriving Saturday the 19th February and departing Tuesday the 22nd February) at our Ros a’ Mhíl, Teálta Campus.

The timing of this 3-day residential course is ideal to help students prepare for the Irish Oral Exam. It will be of immense help while preparing for the 2022 Leaving Certificate. The course is designed to provide students with a comprehensive and thorough preparation for their Leaving Certificate examinations. Furthermore, it will also give them another Coláiste Chamuis and Gaeltacht experience to relish in.

The intensive course will primarily focus on preparing for the Irish Oral exam. Specialised classes will also be provided on certain aspects of the written papers and optimal exam technique. Comprehensive notes will be given out to students during the course. Our teachers are highly experienced teachers and State examiners with a proven track record of excellent results. Our staff also includes teachers who train and prepare the teachers to deliver the Oral Exams on behalf of the department of Education.
