One of the other frequent feedback messages from my Year 8s from their self review on self-awareness and self-management was to get organised. Not to leave things until the last minute. To think out their decisions, thoughts and work requirements. It is always easier said than done. These are students in their first year at high school so there is a lot of organising to be done. They lead busy lives and are involved in a number of activities as well as their subject choices. The School Family site has plenty of good tools and resources to help students and their families cope with the demands of a busy school schedule. Most of them are downloadable pdfs. Then there’s Maria Gracia’s Get organised now site which covers literally everything so that anyone can become organised with anything. No chance of any excuses now!
