Our Year 7 and 10 students have dedicated Study Skills lessons timetabled where they learn different study techniques, how to develop their own study technique that suits their learning and how to organise their time.
One way this is happening is through the Study Skills Handbook. As a school, we have subscribed to this online learning platform and students have participated in some of these lessons in class. We have now placed this on our website so all students and parents can access the lessons and activities that demonstrate a variety of ways to enhance study. There is a particularly useful section for parents with tips on motivating students, setting up a good routine and organising a study space.
We hope you take advantage of the advice and ideas that are presented in this website.
The Study Skills Handbook can be accessed by logging into www.studyskillshandbook.com.au and using the log-in credentials that have been emailed to parents.
