9 Study Tips

If you want to excel this year, this is how the ‘boffins’ do it!

But you have to put in the time. As they say, no pain, no gain!

  • Pay attention in class and take good notes.
  • Each day, go through your notes, review, rewrite and highlight key points. Make this part of your homework plan.
  • Post-It notes are useful; use as flash cards.
  • When you have to read a book, write a summary.
  • Find a quiet place to study where it is comfortable, free from distractions (switch off your phone).
  • If you repeat something several times you are more likely to remember.
  • Study a little each day and don’t cram before a test. Set a schedule – study for 45 minutes and then take a 5-10 minute break to eat, drink or walk around. Your mind is not fully receptive when you are tired.
  • Test yourself frequently. Make up some questions, close your book and see how well you answer them.
  • Don’t leave assignments to the last minute. The longer you wait, the more stressed you’ll be.

Check out these healthy lunchbox ideas…..

No-Bake Oat and Peanut Butter Bars

Makes about 12


1¾ cups rolled oats

½ cup dried fruit

½ cup syrup

1½ tablespoons chia seeds

a few dashes cinnamon

½ cup peanut butter at room temperature, softened

To Make:

1. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl.

2. Mix well until the dry ingredients are well coated in peanut butter and maple syrup.

3. Press into a greased dish. The size of your pan will alter how thick your bars are. A good thickness is about 20mm.

4. Chill in fridge until firm enough to slice.

5. Slice into squares and wrap in plastic wrap for to-go bars.

Apple ‘cookies’ make the perfect snack!

Slice apples into rings and remove core.
Dip the apple slices in lemon juice to prevent browning.
Spread with peanut butter, top with shredded coconut, nuts and chocolate chips.
Apples are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fibre.

Pickle roll-ups

8 slices cold meat
100g cream cheese
4 medium dill pickles

Spread cream cheese onto a piece of cold meat and lay another on top and spread again with more cream cheese.
Position a pickle and roll meat around the pickle, then cut each roll into four equal parts.
Secure with a toothpick. You can make these the night before and put in the fridge. Just pop them into the kids lunchboxes.
