Our School is signed up to the study skills website provided by ‘Enhanced Learning Educational Services’ and students access the site at various time during their pastoral care programme. It is also accessible for students and parents at any time and currently they have a lot of information regarding working from home. The website is www.studyskillshandbook.com.au

Please login and check the latest resource available on the site: Guide to Remote Home Learning. Here you will find tips from setting up your space at home for learning, to templates for daily checklists and strategies for maintaining focus at home. This guide is being updated on a daily basis and is a great resource for students and parents. There is a lot of information out there about working from home, but it is often not tailored specifically to the needs of secondary students. You will also find links to lots of online learning resources as well as resources for stress management, such as this great video from Human Connections: https://humanconnections.com.au/blog/dealing-with-the-stress-and-anxiety-of-coronavirus/
