HSC Success Day

On Thursday 14 June we ran a HSC Success Day for our year 12 students to help them with targeted study and wellbeing strategies. Earlier this term all students participated in Academic and ATAR workshops where they reflected on their performance in their half yearly exams. During these workshops they not only set goals set goals for their HSC year, but also identified areas with their study and time/stress management that they wanted additional help with.

During the HSC Support Day students were divided into groups and participated in four different workshops focused on both study and wellbeing.  Throughout the day students rotated through the four workshops and got to enjoy a BBQ lunch prepared by Mrs Noble and the SLA.  The workshops were very well received by year 12, who gained a lot of valuable tips about study and looking after themselves during their HSC year.  Students learned about:

  • Note taking, Memory, Process and Product goals: This workshop was delivered by Ms Dawkins. Students learned about efficient ways of summarising, memorising,   and goal setting  skills to help them make the greatest gains with their study.
  • Managing time, Distraction and Procrastination: This workshop was delivered by Mrs Kay. Students learned ways to overcome procrastination and distraction, developing a study plan and managing time in the lead up to the HSC.
  • Exam technique and preparing for exams: This workshop was delivered by Mrs Koukoutaris. Students worked through activities to help with their organisation in the time leading up to the Trial HSC exams, effective study techniques and how to break down questions during the exam.
  • Wellbeing: This workshop was delivered by Mr Liley . The focus of this workshop was a holistic look at wellness, combating stress and maintaining balanced lives. Students learned about  nutrition, relaxation, rest, study, work,  socialising and  exercise.
