Our academic year will be starting on Wednesday September 1st this year, welcoming 96 students. We all hope everyone had a nice and relaxing summer and that our students are ready to learn. Emerging from the haze of the holidays, it can be tricky to get your mindset back into ‘study’ mode.
Making resolutions for the new academic year
You might not realise it, but it’s not really the ‘reflection’ itself that helps you become a better student. Rather it’s the new goals/targets that you set for yourself based on your reflection that will help determine your future success. There’s no easy way to properly set yourself effective personal targets, here are some things to consider in setting out your new goals/targets: don’t be too hard on yourself; remember that this is a learning process; don’t be afraid to try out new things (go outside your comfort zone); and don’t be afraid to ask for help/advice (from other students, teachers or JFK staff).
The new goals/targets that you set for yourself based on your reflection that will help determine your future success.
As we plan and prepare for the future, our aim is to enthuse, engage and inspire a generation of critically aware global citizens, ready for the challenges and changes that lie ahead. Throughout this year, we encourage you to join us in school and participate in the wealth of activities and opportunities available here, so we can truly work in a home – school collaboration with your child’s education and welfare at the centre.
Have a great year!
