Study Tips revisited as Term 3 Draws to a Close
Once again, we are nearing the end of another term. Many students complete assessment tasks at this time of the year and notably our VCE students are nearing their final exams. We remind all students that good study habits are not something that they should only consider at the end of a term/semester. High achieving students learn to study and revise topics consistently throughout the whole year.
The following links are worthwhile to give you some guidance as you are developing good study habits and might be a reminder for those just about to sit exams.
The first is BrainPop – this is an application that most boys in years 7 – 9 have used before. It includes very short, sharp concepts to consolidate an idea/topic.

Relieving Stress – https://www.brainpop.com/english/studyandreadingskills/stress/
Test taking skills – https://www.brainpop.com/english/studyandreadingskills/testtakingskills/
We have curated a variety of sites and listed them on our Study Centre website and VCE Resources page. Students of any year level can access them, however, VCE students should certainly be encouraged to develop the many good study habits highlighted.
Good luck to all students and families as they navigate final assessments for Term 3. We hope you all have a lovely Term 3 break! We are particularly keeping in our thoughts the VCE students as they prepare for their upcoming exams; may they prepare well and reap the rewards of their good study habits and hard work over the year.
