Year 7  Parents & Student Study Skills Evening with Dr Prue Salter

On Monday 9 April, 7:00pm – 8:30pm, Year 7 students and their parents are invited to the Deidre Rofe Centre (DRC) to hear Dr Prue Salter from   Enhanced Learning Educational Services  speak about how to develop effective study skills.

Dr Salter’s presentation will  focus on how to create an environment that is conducive to good study habits. She also addresses strategies on developing good communication between students and their parents so conversations about school work are solutions focused rather than fraught with tension. Dr Salter’s presentation is interactive and gives students and their parents an opportunity to talk about how the girls can organise their time efficiently so that they can work productively and avoid last minute stress. It is a refreshing and practical presentation that will give you plenty to build on with your daughters .

You can learn more about how to get motivated  through the  Study Skills Handbook website  by logging in with the details below and working through some of the units, particularly the unit on motivation. On the ‘Things to Print’ page are some useful handouts for parents and students about how to build motivation.
