The Lane Cove Library is holding a series of free workshops in September to help students prepare for the 2018 Higher School Certificate. To book into any of the workshops, email library@lanecove.nsw.gov.au or call 9911 3634.

Answering the Question
Wednesday 12 September, 6:00pm – 7:00pm

Being able to skilfully think and respond ‘critically’ about a question is important for your academic success at school, higher education and in future employment. This workshop examines the descriptive terminology used by NESA, and how to read, interpret and respond to exam questions.

Organisation in Exam Preparation
Wednesday 19 September, 6:00pm – 7:00pm

Some students simply do not prepare effectively for their exams. It’s all about studying smarter not harder. This workshop shows you how to revise for your exams and structure study blocks.

Managing Stress & Anxiety During Exams
Wednesday 26 September, 6:00pm – 7:00pm

Many students feel overwhelmed as they feel the pressure to succeed and meet their own personal expectations. This workshop discusses the role of mindset and positive self-talk as a mediator for perfectionism, stress, anxiety and academic procrastination.


Sometimes some extra help is needed to give a HSC student confidence, here are some local resources.
