Director of Student Wellbeing Mrs Angela Sole
As we commence the school year, all students have now spent quality time getting to know their Tutors and Year Advisors and have been encouraged to nominate a “person” who is there for them to turn to when they have any issues of concern. Our students are encouraged to seek help and support from their teachers and parents.
Our students all have access to a dedicated Moodle site called “Student Wellbeing@ NEGS” which lists strategies, tips and websites that have been carefully selected to assist teenagers in all manner of Wellbeing concerns that may arise.
In Week 2 all took active part in a Study Skills Session run by Elevate Education on Monday 6th February.
Year 7 engaged in the “Study Skills Kick Start” session to support them in their transition to Senior School. They covered how to organise their time, make effective notes in class, summarising skills and how to stay on track of their work.
The Year 8 session “Junior Time Management” helped the girls organise their weekly homework timetables as well as planning ahead to manage handing in well researched Assessments on time.
Years 9 and 10 worked on learning the more detailed skills required when carrying out research work in Stage 5 courses.
Year 11 investigated “Student Elevation” including the beliefs of the peak performing student, adopting a growth mindset and goal setting.
The Year 12 topic “Ace your Exams” was well received by our HSC students- comments heard about this session included “This has helped me to re-focus on concentrating on my plan of attack for this year of study” and “I feel more motivated to plan effectively this year to relieve any stress!”.
