Dear Parents, Carers and Students of Year 11,
We are looking forward to you joining us next Monday, 5 February 2024 at 6pm for the Parent/ Carer and Student Information Evening on Study Skills with Dr Prue Salter in the College Gymnasium.
Parents/ carers and students should attend together as the session is very interactive. Students should wear full school uniform. Both students and parents also need to bring a pen. Handouts will be distributed during the evening.
The main areas that will be covered are:
- Making learning more efficient and effective;
- Organisation and time-management skills;
- Improving study notes and study techniques;
- Dealing with the obstacles and problems.
