Holidays: A sensible balance

With the three-week holiday very much on the minds of our students it is a great opportunity to send a message to them to ensure they find time to relax, switch off their minds and engage in some activities that will help them return recharged for the next term of academic life.

For our younger boys, it may be a great opportunity to enjoy time outside, read a book for their own enjoyment or work on developing a hobby that has gone unloved during the business of term. It may also be an opportunity to clean up their laptop and set up digital files and return organised and ready for a great finish to the year.

For our senior boys, I do encourage a significant break. It is important to take the time to consider the first part of this year and reflect on what went well and what could be improved upon return to school.

Over the holidays we are supporting our Year 12s to re-engage in their studies by offering sessions as detailed below.

The OSC are offering the opportunity to receive final exam help from some very successful Old Scotch Collegians during the third week of the July school holidays. These sessions will occur on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 of July.

Tutors include:

Mitchell Atkinson, Bailey Banfield, Joseph Steinberg, Rob Pluske, Drummond Orr, Fraser Cull, Connor Smith and Aidan Read

There will be specific advice on Mathematics, Science, Humanities and English, with separate sessions for WACE and IB graduates. Please ensure you indicate your preference when you register.

The feedback from these sessions is always very positive and it offers an opportunity for boys to have a structured study environment during the holidays.

Please speak to Lisa Crofts or (08) 9460 6647 for more information.

Have a fantastic holiday, be safe, relax and spend some time doing what you want to do!
