Glendowie College is currently closed to all students and staff. Please go to our COVID-19 page for the latest information.
As at school, we want our students to self-manage their learning and well-being. They are now (young) adults and part of that is taking responsibility for themselves.
A good way to think about this is to imagine that they're an 'apprentice' adult. They have the ability, but not the experience. The role of teachers and parents/whānau is to give advice, ideas and encouragement ... but not to do the work for them.
For example, we'll share ideas about how to set up a study plan at home. Share these with your child(ren) and get them to develop something that they think will work for them. Then check in with them 2-3 days later and see how it's going for them.
Students should know what work they have to do and by when. Get your child to have a diary or list of what they have to do, and by when.
Below are some examples of study plans that students and parents have shared with us. Remember, everyone is different. No one plan will work for all students.
