As Term 3 begins

Year 12

 

Year 12 are rapidly facing the culmination of their time as students, with the Trial HSC Examinations scheduled for Week 4 and Week 5 of this term.

 

As parents, it can be challenging to know how to best support your child.  I would encourage your to be supportive at home without becoming overbearing. Little things can make a big difference  -  bringing them a snack or a cup of tea or helping them study using flash cards, shows that you are there for them and understanding the stress they are facing. It’s important to ensure they have a quiet place to study (free from distractions like younger siblings), that they are eating well and getting a good night’s sleep. Some light exercise should also be encouraged.

Year 9

Year 9 are now a semester into Stage 5. The skills they are now developing are crucial to future success whether for their future career. Students would be experiencing a greater quantity of homework. Students should be working on their homework and assessment tasks for 1 to 2 hours each school night. An important way you as a parent can support your child is to ensure he/she has a quiet, well-lit, distraction-free place to study that has pens/paper/calculator. Try and make this space distraction free with no phone, TV or websites other than homework-related. Check in on your child from time to time to ensure they haven’t got distracted. Also, it’s a good idea to set a specific start time for homework each night. Finally encourage your child to ask for help when it’s needed.
