Year 12 stress is rising as we come to the end of Term 3, which is inevitable as our highly motivated students approach deadlines to complete assessment tasks and final exams.
Ms Prnich and I have spoken with the Year 12 cohort over a pizza lunch, as we discussed planning strategies and targets to meet over the last few weeks of their school lives. We want to help our Year 12s as much as possible, so they can achieve the best possible results. I would like to encourage our school community to pray for our Year 12 students in the coming weeks.
In many cases, the heightened levels of stress that comes into all of our lives is caused by our failure to plan adequately. It has been said that “failing to plan is planning to fail” (Allen Lakein). We make a commitment to continually work with our students to assist them to plan for learning and completion of learning events. Likewise, our College staff also need to plan, so we can ensure that Prescott College will continue to provide excellence in education. In order to plan for the future, Prescott College recently asked our families to complete a parent survey. I would like to thank our parents and guardians for taking the time to give us feedback via the Parent Survey. We value your feedback and will make the results available as soon as possible.
We now ask you to help us again, by updating your details with the College through the Confirmation of Enrolment form. A letter regarding the form has been sent home today with each student. This information is important to us, allowing us to offer you efficient service, communicate with you promptly and plan for your child’s education
Whenever we plan for the future, Prescott College desires the best possible outcomes for each student. We also ask that God blesses our College and students, and so we do our best to commit our plans to God, as advised in the Bible (Proverbs, chapter 16, verse 3).
