Years 7, 8 and 9 Program Leader | Mr Damien Coman
As we hit the mid point of the term it is important for boys to look ahead to their plan for each night, each week and for the remainder of the term. What assignments are due when? What parts am I going to do by which dates? Have I read the information including the criteria sheet carefully? What subjects do I have exams for? When am I going to revise certain chapters/topics? How am I going to revise? These are the questions that students should be formulating answers to as they prepare for the second half of the term.
There is no substitute for hard work, and consistency is the key for boys in these middle years of schooling.
We also consider possible distractions. The Year 9s that I teach for Formation were consistent across all four classes-the big areas that take their time are gaming/social media/You Tube clips/Netflix. On Wednesday 28 March we have expert Mr Cam Adair flying in from America to speak with all Years 8 and 9 about the pitfalls of the time spent on the types of activities where they are spectators rather than being the one ‘in the action’. He is also holding a parent information night at the College from 6-7pm that night. There is no cost for parents to attend - but please RSVP via the link below (more details available in College Events).
