Finishing Year 12

Staying focused is important for all students as they work towards finishing Year 12. There are some simple things you can do.

  • Help your teen stay focused on their goals, reaching the end of the school year and starting the next chapter of their life’s adventure.
  • Resist society's narrow definition of success and encourage your teen to develop their own personal definition that is unique to them.
  • Talk with your teen in particular about your expectations; Students experience much less worry and stress about school work when they feel like they are meeting parents' expectations. Students will often assume what these are if they are not said. It also helps to have reasonable expectations.
  • Tell your teen you love them no matter what grades or ATAR or offers they get.
