In many cases the Higher School Certificate (HSC) is the cause for stress and anxiety in youth reaching the end of their secondary education.
If someone in your household is preparing for the HSC, practical help is at hand as the Lismore City Library is offering free HSC Tips & Advice sessions for anyone looking for extra assistance with their preparation.
The HSC is a stressful time for not only students but more often than not, their families.
The library’s Tips and Advice sessions offer practical assistance on preparation and study, as well as tips on structuring responses, from teachers who are also HSC exam markers. As students reflect on their trial exams, these sessions provide plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
Support crews are also welcome – Parents and carers who may have their own questions can come along and have these answered and discuss strategies to reduce the anxiety that HSC can bring.
The HSC Tips & Advice sessions are relaxed, free and yes, there will be pizza.
Sessions on PDHPE, Biology, Ancient History, English and Legal Studies are available on Thursday afternoons, commencing with PDHPE on August 24.
For information or to book one of the sessions call the Lismore City Library on 66212464.
