Would you like to meet other students through a drumming program at school? DRUMBEAT is a program that brings a small group together each week for 10 weeks for an hour. In this program you will: • Learn simple hand percussion rhythms • Talk about different things like peer pressure, identity, dealing with emotions, building self confidence through music and teamwork • Have Linda Kwok (campus psychologist) and Feonagh Cooke (campus chaplain) hope to run this program on a Thursday at school if YOU are interested. If you’d like to be a part of this group, please let the front office know your name and contact details before Friday 1 June. We look forward to drumming with you. •North Lakeʼs stand at the Careers Expo on the weekend was a popular place. Lots of ex-students and future students dropped in to say hello. Semester one exam preparation by Peter Hamilton THE exams start in week seven and continue into week eight. That means you have four weeks left to prepare for the exams. What should you do? That depends on what you have already done. But, first of all you need to allocate some timeslots for the next 4 weeks to exam preparation. Maybe one night, afternoon or morning just for exam preparation. Select a time and keep it free from all interruptions. How to prepare yourself 1. Review the WHOLE course as the exam will cover the WHOLE course 2. Identify the important topics where you spent a lot of time. You will get questions on these topics 3. Get past papers and get familiar with the structure of the exam 4. Practise under exam conditions – write answers in the allocated time. Get used to working fast! 5. Practise interpreting essay questions and doing essay plans in 5 -10 minutes 6. Never just be reading notes/texts, you must be testing yourself Good luck and don't forget to see me if you want some individual help Thereʼs action in the library Looking for assistance?
