Preparing to go back to school

starting a new grade a little early

Your thoughts (23)

We all know that the schools have closed now but there are things you can do to keep yourself busy. How about preparing yourself for school when it opens?

The best way to do this is to have a list of things you want to do in 2019. Have a wishlist of things you want to improve. This will be things like having extra lessons at school or having more time to study that subject you find difficult.

By doing this you will be ready when the school opens.

1.Wishlist

Write all the things you would like to achieve in 2019. The subjects you want to improve on.

The hours you would like to spend on the subject you find challenging.

Starting a study group. Learning with other learners will help you. This will be a chance for you to ask questions which you don’t understand.

Being friends with people who are serious about school work. Friends who support each other when it comes to school are good friends.

2. Read books.

Reading books is very good and it will keep you busy.

3. Do a revision

If there is a subject that you find difficult. Find time to do some of the exercises again with friends. This will prepare you for the next grade.

Let us know in the comment section below what you do to prepare yourself to go back to school.

Thank you so much... Looks like I've implemented a few of your tips already. I have set up wish lists, I am already looking to have friends who will motivate me academically. The hard part will be consistency in the level of dedication I put into my studies. Ohh and I've arranged with my friends to have a girls trip this December, we're looking to open a savings account, I also have fixed accounts of my own. I'm super excited about my 2019 resolutions honestly...

He's 32 now and he left school at starndad 5 but he want to go back to school but he doesn't know how

Hi Carol2, we'd suggest you let your friend know that you are willing to help, but see if you can ask him where he needs help and how you could help him. It's always a good idea to be honest with your friends and let them know of the things you are unsure of. Once you know what he is struggling with, you'll be able to help him better.

He/she must go straight to the headmaster nd ask for administration,maybe something will come out

Hey Ree Thank you for reaching out. There are different options that you can take if you want to finish your schooling. You can apply for the Amended Senior Certificate. You need to be over 21 to apply for this certificate. You can apply for this certificate because you have passed grade 9. You will need to provide proof that you have passed your Grade 9 and the year that you were in grade 9. There are different places that are available for you to study towards your Amended Senior Certificate. Good luck Ree. You will do well.

Hi MamaAdi Going back to school is a good thing and it is never too late to do that. Unfortunately, we can't tell you what to do but the good thing about this is that you can always do distant learning. You will not have to be at school every day. There are also classes that one can do online. We advise you to talk to people close to you and explain to them what you would like to do. We hope this helps Springster.

Hi Zenathi We are glad you like the subjects. Making friends can be challenging but it can start with just saying that someone's hairstyle is nice. We hope this helps Springster.
