Tips for Student’s Beginning High School

Beginning high school doesn’t have to be daunting- it is a new experience that can be exciting.

Here are Pixel’s top tips for student’s beginning High School:

Be yourself 

It is often too easy to succumb to the pressures of high school and change who we are, however, you must become comfortable with who you are and remain true to who you are.

Stay Organised

Staying organised in Year 7 can help you, not only throughout the rest of high school but also throughout your career, as it helps you to remain on top of all tasks and takes the stress away. Organisation is helpful when studying and handing in assessments on time.

Challenge Yourself

Thrive to be the best that you can and push yourself out of your comfort zone by enrolling in extracurricular activities.

Use your School Diary 

Use your school diary to write down homework or important events.

Speak Up

If you are not understanding a task, ensure that you speak up, and receive support. Teachers will often go out of their way to support their students if they are showing initiative and a willingness to learn.

Get into a Routine 

Plan homework or assessment tasks early and try to finish them a day or two before the submission day.

Embrace a Bad Report or Grade

At some point, you may receive a bad grade or even a bad report. Instead of giving up, let this fuel your hard work and use it to recognise what you need to focus on to do better.
