Years 7, 8 and 9 Program Leader | Mr Damien Coman

Week 7 often sends the ‘alarm bells ringing’ once boys realise that every day counts and time is running out for Term 3. The mistake that can be made is that 100% is placed into assignments but the exams that are fast approaching are ignored. Students need to juggle the three academic areas each night:

  1. Homework
  2. Assignments
  3. Revision

Students should be revising by using the checklist booklet that was provided to every Year 7-9 student in the first week of term. The Head of Faculty for each exam subject has highlighted very specifically what should be revised. This helps provide direction when students study these subject areas.

A variety of study techniques are taught directly in our Formation Program such as Roll Call, Work the Corridors, how to memorise effectively, mind maps, flash cards, flow charts, recite, re-read,

re- write highlighting, end of chapter reviews and setting self-tests.

The countdown is on!

Year 8s and their parents are invited to the subject selection information evening in the Campbell Centre tonight at 6pm.
