Have you taken a moment to look back on what a long way you have come so far?

How about preparing a nice fresh smoothie with 3 fruits of your choice (banana makes them really good) example: - 1 banana, 1 kiwi and 2 strawberries. We recommend that you avoid citrus.  All you need is some kind of food processor and some ice or leave it to cool for some time in the fridge.  When ready, take it with you on the roof.  Here's some background music for you to enjoy whilst taking some time to look back on what you have achieved so far!! -



We know you're not done yet so here's a prayer for you as you continue this journey of studies ... but take heart, you're almost done!!

Prayer for Exams

Help me lord, to be able to pass the test, to run life’s race and never give up. To do my best – for you. And, when swamped by a pile of books and confused by countless questions, then help me to pause and to give thanks that in all the stress, the work and the pain, I have at least the opportunity to try to do well. Thank you, lord.


10 Concentration Tips


1. Create a distraction to-do list

To stay on task, whenever something you want to check out pops into your head, write it down and promise yourself you’ll be able to look it up once your focusing session is over and your break time has arrived.

2. Sing Out from Social Media

3. Counting Exercise

An exercise to increase concentration is: count backwards in your mind from hundred to one. Once you have mastered this, move on to counting backwards from hundred to one but this time skipping three numbers such as 100, 97, 94, 91, 88 etc.

4. Physical Exercise

5. Drawing & Colouring

6. Listening to or Playing Music

7. Mindfulness & Prayer

8. Games

9. Games

10. Go for a walk
