THERE are just two weeks of
school left before year 12 students
on Yorke Peninsula start their final
exams. The first exam for many
local students is English Studies on
Monday, October 29.
Principals are reminding stu-
dents to be organised and keep a
balance of study and relaxation in
these final weeks.
“Students need to ensure they
are looking after their personal
wellbeing by maintaining healthy
eating habits, drinking lots of water
and ensuring they are getting
enough sleep,” Harvest Christian
School, Kadina, principal Sandra
Yorketown Area School princi-
pal Liz Wilson said students are on
the home stretch.
“They should be consolidating
their learning and making sure
they have clarified any outstanding
questions with their teachers,” she
“They should make sure they
have organised their study pro-
gram and handed up any final
work to be marked.”
Kadina Memorial High School
principal Andrew Quin said it is
important students stay focused.
“The best preparation for exams
is to refer to past exam papers and
test their exam techniques,” Mr
Harvest students Mathew Brand
and Madeline Simpson have four
and three exams respectively.
“I’ve been going through all my
notes and using a lot of high-
lighters,” Mathew said.
Madeline attended study semi-
nars in Adelaide during the holi-
days and said they were really help-
ful for learning revision tricks.
“I’ve also been studying in
groups which has been good to get
other ideas ... but it still feels like
there is so much to do!”
Final preps for year 12 exams
ACCREDITED dietitian Geraldine
Georgeou and website themainmeal.
com.au have devised a healthy study
diet with nutrient-rich protein foods to
help students fuel their brains as well
as handy tips for parents, including:
T Eat breakfast: skipping breakfast
can make your student feel
light-headed and lose
concentration. On exam day,
prepare a healthy breakfast packed
with protein and low GI, for
example, eggs on grainy toast,
porridge with reduced fat milk or
fruit and nuts.
T Get active outdoors: make sure
students have time to relax,
unwind and recharge. Regular
physical activity releases
endorphins which help improve
mood and reduce stress.
T Encourage good sleeping patterns:
aim for a minimum of eight hours
sleep. Eliminate food and drinks
which contain a lot of caffeine in
the evening, for example, soft
drinks and chocolate.
T PLANNING... Harvest Christian School, Kadina, students Madeline Simpson and Mathew
Brand plan their study timetable before exams.
ABBY Muller, of Bute, will participate
in the Westpac Stair Climb in honour of
her best friend Shanae Lyall who died
in a car accident last October.
Team Panda, Abby as well as Josh
and Annette Clasholm and Kira
Bromely, will climb the 607 stairs on
October 19 to raise money for the
Childhood Cancer Association.
“Shanae and I were very close friends
and it would have been her birthday the
day after this event and her anniversary
is coming up,” Abby said.
“Shanae was a beautiful life lost and
too many lives are lost from accidents
we cannot prevent, but if everyone
shows a little compassion imagine the
difference we could make.
“I have had relatives who have passed
away with cancer so I know about the
pain and suffering and want to help.”
Initially, the team’s fundraising target
was $500; however, they surpassed that
in just two days and have increased
their target to $2000.
“I have always wanted to put money
towards a charity and do something
great but nothing ever caught my eye,”
“Shanae and I always wanted to work
with children when we were older and
she had a really big heart so she would
be proud of this.”
Abby is encouraging people to open
up their hearts and wallets.
“It’s easy to donate, just visit
er96 and go to donate now; it takes just
two minutes of your time and a little bit
can go a long way,” she said.
The team is also looking for a busi-
ness to match its fundraising dollar for
Stair climb to honour best friend Shanae
T FUNDRAISING CLIMB... Kira Bromely, Annette Clasholm,
Abby Muller and Josh Clasholm will climb the stairs of
Westpac House, Adelaide’s tallest building, to raise money
for the Childhood Cancer Association.
