Dear Year 11 Students and Parents,

If you missed the study skills evening this week, or felt there was too much to absorb in one go, we have good news for you.

We have arranged for you to be able to access a filmed version of Dr Salter’s study skills session at home.

The study skills seminar has been broken down into bite-sized chunks, so if you do not want to do it all in one go, you can work through the session at your own pace. You can also watch any of the videos again up until Tuesday, 5 March 2024.

The video page will prompt you to download the handout for the session and show you at the end where you can then access all the slides from the session shown in the video. Students should use the handout and then complete the reflection after the videos.

The link to access the session form is: https://www.pruesalter.com/videos/waverley11.php

Our school also has access for the year to https://www.studyskillshandbook.com.au/

Please take advantage of these opportunities to learn strategies to become a more powerful learner.
