Surviving High School

High School

It’s that time of the year again when school ends and massive changes happen whether it be starting a new year, moving to a bigger school or leaving education forever. It’s scary, change is always scary but there are some things that you can do to make the whole process run smoother.

Organise // Organisation is key because ensuring that you know where you’re meant to be, when and with whom can limit the levels of stress that you might otherwise feeling. Use a diary to ensure that you keep up with your homework and try not to leave things until the last minute.

Hit a work-life balance // Of course school is about education, it would be silly for me to point out otherwise but it’s also about learning crucial life skills and that includes social skills, so seek out opportunities to meet new people.

Order // This tip definitely goes along side organisation but keep everything in order so that it’s easier for you to organised. Have a draw or folder that is specifically for education and use this to store all your educational tools. On that note, ensure you sort your bag out the night before because that is just a recipe for disaster.

Do your homework // These days it seems as if people are giving more and more homework to do and I’m going to come out and say it, some of it even seems pointless. Yet most of the homework you’re given will have a purpose and getting it done could help you get ahead of the game in class.

Make the most of it // Education ends to quickly and when it’s over I can guarantee that you will miss certain parts of it. I hated school from age 7-16 but I LOVED sixth form and education and I miss it pretty much every day. I miss the structure, I miss the people and I miss the constant stream of knowledge that I received. So make the most of it while you can.
