This week we commenced our work with the A-Team Tutors and have had a very positive start. This is a service we are providing for those students who are seeking extra tutoring and prefer to access it on site. Our Year 7 and 8 students have the opportunity this year to attend study skills sessions and will be accessing these over the next three terms. There is a fantastic article in the Australian Boarding Schools Association’s latest “Light’s Out” edition that explains the vision of this company. Below is an excerpt from this article:
“At A-Team Tuition, we do not rely on the notion that intelligence stems from good genetics, luck, nor past experiences. In fact, we as a team seek to work collectively towards our overarching vision of providing every student in Australia with the right support, strategies and mindset to succeed regardless of the different dynamics embodied in each individual student”.
Whilst offering this service we continue to provide teachers who are available during Prep time to assist if a student is having difficulty with homework. Students are often hesitant to seek help during this time, but they are encouraged to find a way in which they feel comfortable to let someone know they require assistance.
Our Activities Roster has kicked off for Term 2 and we are looking forward to learning First Aid Awareness, basic car maintenance, knitting, competing in Nerf wars and obstacle courses, and continuing with gardening and craft.
