Supervised Study

Supervised afternoon study sessions each weekday and on every other Saturday is mandatory for boarders. This year, we are delighted to welcome to Mr. Gabriel Casey as the supervisor of evening study sessions. Gabriel who has 14 years teaching experience himself, moved his family from Co. Clare in 2011 when his daughters, Hannah & Nóra, enrolled in Coláiste Naomh Eoin for a year-long once-off experience. Fortunately, they loved the island and the school so much that they decided to stay.
