In this issue we explore many of the issues facing HSC students and their families. We offer study tips and guidance on how to get through the next 5 months.
This is the time of year where we see HSC students and their families feeling an enormous amount of pressure. Everyone is on edge and nerves are frayed….stop…breathe in…breathe out.
Parents… let go a little… this is the time where you need to kick the little chicks off the branch and hope that they fly. Ultimately there life will not be destroyed if they don’t get a 99.5 ATAR. There are many roads that lead to the same destination.
Students… although the HSC is important… THE WORLD DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND YOU AND ONLY YOU. There are thousands of students in the same position as you are now and millions before you. We do understand what you are going through. We have all been there or at least in a similar situation and it is meant to be hard. Use the experience of those around you to help you. ASKING FOR HELP DOES NOT MAKE YOU WEAK! It shows strength and humility. The only way you will get through this is with the support of those around you. However, it will be hard to find someone to help you if you take anyone’s head off that is in your line of fire, as you are coming down from sugar high induced by 4 cans of ‘Red Bull’ and a packet of ‘Tim-Tams.’
