By Larissa, Year 11.
This morning, Year 11s were either pleased or worried after opening a sealed envelope with predicted exam results enclosed inside. An interim results day was displayed this morning to allow the Year 11s to understand where they are concerning their grades and what their teachers think they will receive when it comes to the potential horror of the real results day.
The intention was to allow the students to realise that they only have 36 school days till their first exam and for them to act upon this by deciding what they need to do to improve some grades they weren’t happy with, or to carry on with their excellent work and with that they will receive the grades of their dreams.
Mr Robinson shared to the Year 11s a quote from the famous Albert Einstein to try to encourage them even further: “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”. This explained that if the students haven’t got the results they want then they need to do something different to achieve grades that will affect their lives forever.
So to all Year 11s: with all of this circling around your restless mind, what will you do to ensure you are thrilled with the results printed on that A4 piece of paper that holds your future?
