Space Hopping

Dear Grade 11 and 12 Students,

This week I am prototyping Space Hopping with Grade 11 and 12 students. This is an idea to provide supported independent study in the Library during time you would usually be studying in the lounge and, for Grade 12 students between mock exams.  This means that you can work independently in the Library with a member of staff available to support you. The aim is to help you be more productive and focused during school study time. Interested? The prototype will be happening at these times this week:

Monday 10.40am  Tuesday 11.45am  Thursday 8.10am

You can only attend if you would usually be in the lounge or taking an online course at this time. I will meet anyone interested in the lounge at the start of the block.


A Monday morning joke for you….

Why did the teacher write the assignment details on the window?

She wanted the homework to be very clear!

Speaking of homework:

Homework Club will be held this Monday and Wednesday from 3:15-4:15 in the LSS area. It is open to ALL grade 6-12 students. Multiple teachers will be there to help with anything that needs to get done. Come check it out!
