This week, our Middle and Senior School girls have been writing their Term 1 exams. The process of preparing for and taking exams is a valuable learning experience, and our LINCWell department’s programming includes exam preparation strategies. Particularly at this time of the school year, it is important for our girls to understand that a healthy lifestyle (including proper eating, sleeping, and relaxation routines), accompanied by quality study time, and is a far more effective strategy than spending endless hours and late nights studying.
In the two weeks leading up to exams, LINCWell hosted Exam Jam sessions. In addition to the weekly Pilates and yoga classes offered through the department, Clementines had the opportunity to take a break from studying, practice mindfulness, and relax by participating in board game meet-ups, a smoothie and nutrition workshop with Greenhouse Juice, and colouring. The girls could also get crafty – one of SCS’s hallways was particularly sparkly following the lunchtime creation of Calming Glitter Jars! During exam week, LINCWell also hosted a designated chill zone for students to relax in before making their way to the gym to write their finals.
As exam week comes to a close, we wish our girls the best with their exam results and a well-deserved relaxing weekend!
