First semester is already in full swing! You and your child may still be adjusting to the hustle and bustle of primary school or secondary school. Succeeding in semester one is not only important for your child’s self-esteem, but also preps them for the semesters to come.
It is time to ditch the bathers, beach towels and the pool for new textbooks and most importantly, an exciting new semester! Going back to school after a long holiday is both exciting and anxiety provoking. Sometimes the back-to-school transition can be quiet tough for parents and kids; we all must get back into school mode and adjust to the busy pace the school year brings.
Many of us remember having a tutor during our school days. They may have been a friend of the family, an older sibling's friend or perhaps someone sourced from the local paper or community notice-board. Whilst some of us were lucky enough to develop a great rapport with a tutor, chances are that such instances were few and far between. Unfortunately, kids often find themselves being tutored by someone they just don't get along with, and this can have serious implications for their learning.
It is getting warmer, and this can only mean one thing: Summer is just around the corner! However, before we can enjoy Summer’s longer days and pleasant sunshine rays, we have one hurdle to overcome: Term 4.
