Learning Journals

Learning Journal

Each week as part of the homework in Core Subjects students will be instructed to complete a Learning Journal.  This part of the homework is best completed over several nights for about 10 minutes at a time.  The Learning Journal is a tool to help students remember what has been covered in class and to help with revision for tests and later for exams. 

The following are guidelines for completing a Learning Journal:

Step 1

Read through the pages completed in class in the last one to two days.

Step 2

Carefully make notes (summarise) the work covered in those one or two days.  This only needs to be a few short points (usually 5-10 points).

Step 3

Read back through the notes and highlight the most important information.

Steps 1 and 2 can be done in a few minutes on one night.  The next night can be spent highlighting and revising these points.  If this task is completed on a regular basis, it will only take a few minutes. 

The Journal will then contain all the major information needed for revision for tests and exams; of course more study is always needed before a test or exam but this will make it less stressful.  The completion of the Learning Journal on a regular basis will help students to remember the topics studied in class.

It was a great day at the MARC for the 2018 Senior Swimming Carnival. Staff and students had a ball as the fierce, but friendly, faction rivalry inspired all. As usual, the BBQ was fired up for lunch and students swam before a packed parent gallery.
