26/03/2013 LORETO COLLEGE YEAR 11 STUDENTS LEARN TO ‘LAUGH IN THE FACE OF EXAMS’

Year 11 students from Loreto College Coleraine attended a Study Skills workshop entitled ‘Laugh In The Face Of Exams’ on Tuesday 26th March.  Presented by Ben Best of local organisation Tree Of Knowledge, the workshop sought to prepare and motivate the students for the fast-approaching examinations season as the Easter holidays began.

Designed to help students prepare for exams, the Laugh In The Face Of Exams session equips students with tools and techniques to cope better with the pressures of sitting exams. It is an interactive workshop, which aims to encourage students to adopt a positive attitude, deal effectively with stress, aim high to improve their results, take an emotionally intelligent approach to learning and set goals for the future. 

Mrs Jane Nugent, Head of Year 11 at Loreto College, commented that the workshop had been highly motivational in preparing the students for the busy and demanding months which lay ahead for the Year 11 students.  Mr Stephen Gallagher, Vice Principal, paid tribute to Mr Ben Best, who led the workshop, for his energy and enthusiasm in inspiring the students, and to the Year 11 students for their active participation in the workshop.
