Where can I order textbooks?

Textbook lists are provided after registration and can be ordered from the many online shopping platforms.  We also provide a textbook ordering service for you to order textbooks at publisher’s prices.

What support should I provide to my child?

We believe, “It takes a village to raise a child.”

Whilst we see our role as academic specialists, it is important that you are involved and support your child in their learning journey.

Parents can assist their child in the following ways:

  1. Provide a clear structure. Decide on the times your child will study for each subject and ensure that they stick to the schedule.
  2. Provide the necessary resources and help them organise their workspace and materials. Provide a filing system that works for your child and print their work schedule so that they can tick off the work they have completed. Please assist them to print their material if they prefer using a hard copy.
  3. Discuss their work with them and review their progress every week to make sure they understand all the work. Ask us to arrange subject specific tutoring when you see they require tutelage.
  4. Praise their effort and encourage them when they find any topic challenging. Remind them to embrace challenge and to see effort as the path to mastery.

Use Growth Mindset LANGUAGE:
Add ‘yet’ to your statement: I can’t convert decimals ‘yet’.
Tell yourself to stop when your mindset is negative. Clear your mind before continuing.
Talk to yourself as ‘you’ instead of ‘I’: You can do this!
