Parent Seminar: Tools for Success: Study Skills For Years 7 & 8

Study Skills for Year 7 and 8 students and parents

An interactive evening for parents and students outlining tools and techniques for students to achieve their personal academic best.

The main areas that will be covered are:

  • Managing homework and assignments effectively by efficient time management.
  • Learning to be more organised for school and at home.  
  • Working and studying effectively in high school.

Parent/Guardian(s) and students should attend this very valuable seminar together. As the session is very interactive, the session will not be of full value unless both the students and a parent attend. Both students and parents also need to bring along a pen each (and one highlighter for the family) and the school diary. 

Dr Prue Salter is the founder of ELES (www.enhanced-learning.net) and an expert in the area of study skills. She has conducted over 4,000 study skills seminars across Australia and Asia, has written 20 study skills resource kits for schools and is the creator of the online and interactive study skills website used by more than 120,000 students (www.studyskillshandbook.com.au).

Not only is Prue an expert in helping students develop the skills they need to be effective and efficient with their schoolwork, but her past experience as a secondary teacher and Year Coordinator means that she has an insider’s knowledge about the struggles students face. Prue‘s PhD explores whole-school integrated approaches to developing students’ self regulated learning skills.

We highly recommend all Year 7 students and their parents attend this important seminar.
