Welcome back to Term 1 of 2018 at Sum of Us. We hope everyone is feeling refreshed and looking forward to a wonderful year ahead.
At the end of last year, several parents asked us to provide a
Study Skills Workshop for older students Years 10 -12.
For all interested students, this workshop will now take place at
1040 North Road Bentleigh East on Saturday 3rd February at 3pm
The facilitators for this workshop will be Sara Trethewey and our highly regarded guest speaker Joy Brown. Joy has a great wealth of experience helping students develop their study skills as part of her role as Head of House at a large Grammar School.
The objectives of the workshop are
• To provide practical ideas and advice regarding ways to study.
• To enable students to manage their workload effectively.
• To develop healthy and effective work habits,
• To provide guidelines for revision etc.
During the workshop students will be actively involved in: reflecting and improving on their current practices; setting SMART goals; managing their time to meet those goals; and becoming familiar with a range of methods of study that may be required for different subjects.
At Sum of Us we hope that mentoring our students in this way will help them become more adept at managing their work and help them to achieve even better results. (Our joint dux achieved 99.75 this year Congratulations Akila and Anthea!)
If you are interested in your child attending our Study Skill course please email email@example.com or ring Sara on 0411 588 085.
Please be aware places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
It is expected that the workshop will last between 60 -90mins.
Parents are invited to attend the first part of the presentation. After this the students will be asked to independently plan for their first terms study. We will then encourage students to share their study planner with their parents on their return.
Towards the end of the first term we will follow up and provide an evaluation opportunity where students can reflect on their goals and their progress and make any necessary changes for term 2.
Cost $50 per family.
