YEAR 7 PARENTS AND STUDENTS TOOLS FOR SUCCESS STUDY SKILLS EVENING

This week Dr Prue Salter from Enhanced Learning Educational Services  ran a study skills evening with Year 7 parents and students.  The evening helped families put systems in place to help students work towards achieving their personal best in an efficient and effective way. Students examined their home study environment, the way they organise and manage their resources, how to work effectively at home and deal with distractions, how to manage the workload in high school, and the steps to studying in high school: making study notes, learning the notes by testing yourself and doing as much practise as possible.

Parents are encouraged to review the handout from the session with students and discuss the main areas identified where changes need to be made. Parents can also find extra study skills tips on this  website.

All secondary students at our school also have access to a great study skills website to help students develop their skills.

NAPLAN – PARENTS OF STUDENTS IN YEAR 7 AND YEAR 9  

Parents have been emailed the following information regarding NAPLAN testing.

As you know we use a range of diagnostic tools to gather information about your daughter’s learning. NAPLAN testing forms a part of this process and allows teachers to learn more about the students they teach. This email includes a letter from the Board of Studies, Teacher and Educational Standards (BOSTES) that includes important  information about NAPLAN testing.

Please do not hesitate to contact me via email  if you have any questions or concerns.
