Tertiary Preparation for Year 13 students

As part of the Auckland Central Community of Schools initiative a team of
seven teachers at Epsom Girls Grammar School have been working hard to
develop a series of workshops for our Year 13 students that prepare them for a
transition into tertiary education.

Recent research has shown that the transition from secondary school to a
tertiary environment is challenging for many students; even students that
experience high levels of success in their secondary education can fnd the
tertiary environment tough.

The EGGS Tertiary Prep. workshops seek to help bridge this gap and prepare
our girls for this next phase in their lives. In the workshops we will be looking
closely at the diferences between secondary school (EGGS life) and a tertiary
environment. We will also be focusing on enabling students to become more
independent in their ability to manage themselves (time, living situations,
social-life, money, health, etc), information, resources, research and study. Year
13 is the perfect time for students to be thinking about preparing themselves
for tertiary education, and what students learn in the workshops can and
should be applied to their learning now.

Our frst workshop begins in Week 9 on either Tuesday 28th June in the EGGS
Stafroom (2:15-3:15pm), or Friday 1st July in the EGGS Hall (7:30-8:30am) -
students can choose which workshop time best suits their schedule and
we encourage all students in Year 13 to attend.
