Final exams will soon be upon us! As we enter into this busy time of year, it is important for Middle and Senior School students to manage their time effectively, use active study strategies, and be as prepared as possible in order to reduce the level of stress often associated with taking exams.

On Wednesday, April 19, the Centre for Learning hosted a parent/child exam preparation workshop. Topics covered in the workshop  included scheduling time for exam preparation, active study strategies, tips for answering different types of exam questions, and strategies to use on the day of the exam.

During the month of May, the Centre for Learning will also be hosting exam preparation sessions for both Middle and Senior School students during lunch recess. Students are invited to bring their study materials to the Centre for Learning and use it a quiet place to study, or they can work with a Learning Support Specialist to examine different approaches to studying. Times for these exam preparation sessions will be posted in the DIS, on the Middle School Hubs, and also on the bulletin board outside of the Centre for Learning (Room 220).

SJR Parents and Students, please visit the Centre for Learning’s website at www.sjr.mb.ca/cfl for more information about study strategies and exam preparation
