Study Skills Seminar with ‘Learn 4 Life’
23 Aug 2013
The Study Skills Seminar for Year 11 that took place on the 21st August proved a great success. The aim of the seminar was to provide students with valuable skills for study by equipping them with time management and stress relief skills and providing them with new and varying study skills to utilise in their Yearly Examinations later this term, as well as better manage their HSC year starting next term.
The seminar covered the following:
How to be motivated and how to increase independent learning
How to effectively manage an increased workload through revision
Increase confidence and preparation for study
How to cope with stress
Here are some testimonials from the students themselves:
