Dr Prue Salter from Enhanced Learning Educational Services

On Thursday 28 June,  Dr Prue Salter from Enhanced Learning Educational Services will conduct a study skills session with Year 12, building on the work done with the students last year.  The session will examine advanced research about the brain and how that could be used to make their study more effective. The focus on the session is looking ahead to the approaching examination blocks in Year 12 and how students can ensure they are well-prepared. Steps to make effective study notes will be highlighted and students will also examine the study techniques they traditionally use, exploring new techniques they could try this year. The students will also be given guidelines as to how much time they should allocate to schoolwork during term time and the type of independent learning they should consistently be doing throughout the year.  Students will also be given guidance for planning their study time in the holidays prior to the Trial HSC Exams and HSC Exams.  The Year 12 Careers Conference will follow on from Dr Salter’s study session.
