S1-S3 Parental Study Skills Evening

Parents of pupils in S1 to S3 were invited to a study skills evening on Thursday 28 September. The aim of this event was to help parents to support their children in preparing for class tests and assessments in the early stages of secondary school.  The workshops focused on simple study techniques which may be of benefit to pupils such as mind mapping, the use of study cards, effective note-taking and literacy skills.  The workshops also introduced parents to a range of online resources that pupils can use to assist them in their studies. A copy of the booklet issued to parents last night can be found here.  A copy of some of the materials used can be found here:
