Dear Parents, Carers and Students of Year 7,
We are looking forward to you joining us next Tuesday, 28 February 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. Both students and parents also need to bring along a pen. Handouts will be given out during the evening.
The Main Areas that will be Covered
- Managing homework and assignments effectively by efficient time management;
- Learning to be more organised for school and at home using structures and routines;
- Working and studying effectively in high school and becoming a more powerful learner.
Also, just to remind you that our College is a subscriber to the study skills website www.studyskillshandbook.com.au
The Study Skills website will help you develop essential skills for academic success. There are units of work on improving time management skills, how to study, research skills, summarising, technology use, brain and memory and much more.
Everything you need to know about becoming a more powerful learner and improving your marks at school can be found on this site. For example, learn how the colour of your room affects your ability to study, what the best study techniques are for your type of brain, how to improve your handwriting, and useful software and apps to block yourself from technology distractions.
You will also see lots of useful handouts, grids and planners at the bottom of the THINGS TO PRINT page.

The more of this website you can work through, the more you will set yourself up for academic success.
