Creating New Habits for Study Success

It’s one thing to know you need to use certain study strategies and techniques (e.g. create mind maps, break your work down into small chunks and review your notes regularly). But knowledge of these strategies is only the starting point.

Next you have to apply these strategies. You need to build these strategies into your daily routine.


How to ace Year 12

Year 12 can put a lot of pressure on you, but think about this: ‘whatever your goals may be for the future, keep in mind that there are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is the same’. That’s some pretty sound advice from Phil Newnham, a teacher and careers practitioner in a large government school in Melbourne’s east. Phil also recommends you ‘plan for your future but don’t let it get in the way of a successful Year 12 – nothing is final; there are always other options.’


World Challenge

World Challenge builds the life skills young people need to live a life of courage, kindness and adventure. Today we are 30 years young, proudly travelling to over 40 destinations with over 8,000 students every year. We’re not shy in saying we lead the way in safety, quality, ethical community engagement and learning outcomes.
