Exam preparation workshops through the CFL
The boarding program is so very fortunate to have such dedicated staff members assisting boys as they prepare for the December examinations. Kathryn Barnes and Jody McLean offered a dozen workshops over the last month to assist students from Foundation Year (FY) to IB2, as they prepare for challenging written exams. Many of the workshops have occurred during the lunch hour but McLean has also been offering workshops in the evenings to accommodate the needs of our boarders.
For some boarders in FY and IB1, this is their first set of IB exams; for some boarders this is also their first set of exams where the language of instruction is English. The Wernham and West Centre for Learning staff members draw upon years of experience when preparing students for exams. The boys all come away with a calendar that will help maximize efficiency into their study plan; there are also good discussions about sleep, exercise and healthy diet. IB2 exams begin Friday, Dec. 9. FY and IB1 students will begin on Thursday, Dec. 15.
Thanks so much to Barnes and McLean for doing such wonderful work helping the boys create a routine that will serve them well at UCC and beyond.
