We now have a well deserved holiday coming up but hopefully what the week has highlighted to our students is that their story starts now in terms of the University they choose and ultimately the career path they follow in their working lives.

So I encourage you to do two things 1) Really engage with Unifrog and 2) follow these steps for advice on how to use your time to develop skills and attitudes that you can take forward on your journey.

  • Get together with your family as you are going to need that strong bond for your journey.
  • Learn a new skill and put yourself ahead of your peers.
  • Join a club/group and don't let boredom set in your mind.
  • Get a part time job and start to experience what life may be like after University.
  • Volunteer and put your existing skills to good use for service to the community.
  • Keep fit and remember a healthy mind needs a healthy body.
  • Plan for next term by buying your stationery and sports kit for P.E lessons.

But do take time to relax and let yourself daydream for a few moments and enjoy the wonderful country you live in - Brazil or perhaps somewhere else over the holidays!
