High School Weekly Update

Now that exam season is upon us, we know that many of our students will be in preparation mode so that they can demonstrate their best skills and achieve the best results possible. For our seniors who are taking IB courses, they will begin their IB Mock Exams on Monday, December 9. These exams are designed to put the students in similar conditions to what they will experience when they sit for their actual IB Exams in May. All other students should be preparing for their semester exams starting now! Please encourage your children not to wait too long before studying, helping them understand that cramming and studying are not the same thing. 

 

In that time of exam preparation, we also know that some students will start to exhibit higher levels of stress than they may normally display. As parents, you will see and feel the effects of this increased stress more than we will at school, so we want to provide you with some strategies to help your children navigate these last few days (via ReachOut.com). 

 

Parents and Caregivers are encouraged to do the following:

  • Give children time off from chores and non-urgent family stuff.

  • Encourage children to keep doing the activities they did before exams.

  • Help children set up a study space and make sure the rest of the family understands

  • Chat with your children about what they want to do after exams finish.

  • Remind your children to go to bed at a good time each night.

  • Go on study break walks with them and try to cook wholesome meals

  • Make a time to chat to them and let them vent.

 

Teens are encouraged to do the following:

  • Stay organized with to-do lists and study timetables.

  • Take regular study breaks

  • Have a dedicated study space

  • Have a long-term goal

  • Get as much sleep as possible

  • Remember health: eat well and stay active

  • Talk to people around you.
