2015 Year 12 stu­dents could learn a lot from the 2014 batch of high achievers. Stu­dents in­ter­viewed by this news­pa­per’s re­porters last week talked of get­ting plenty of sleep, reg­u­lar ex­er­cise and con­sis­tent study­ing rather than cram­ming. They also made time to so­cialise with friends and ate a healthy diet. Few ad­mit­ted to be­ing stressed dur­ing exams, just when they were ac­cess­ing re­sults. There’s so much pres­sure on teenagers out­side of their school­work, it’s good to hear them try­ing dif­fer­ent meth­ods to re­main calm, live a bal­anced life and suc­ceed. Th­ese are the stu­dents this year’s classes need to hear about. They are the role mod­els that present Year 12 stu­dents can and will learn from. Teach­ers and pro­fes­sion­als are backed up by stud­ies and past ex­pe­ri­ence but this bunch of high achievers are armed with fresh knowl­edge and ex­am­ples of what re­ally works.
