Last week, students from Newcastle Bridges School had the pleasure of meeting Dr Rebecca Wright (Senior Specialist Educational Psychologist for Social, Emotional and Mental Health). Rebecca is an Educational Psychologist who came to meet our Year 11 students and deliver an Exam Anxiety Workshop. The overall goal was to support positive outcomes for children and young people. Rebecca shared some very useful strategies to use during exams including:

  • ‘The Blob Tree’
  • The Stress Bucket
  • Stop the WASP - Wait Absorb Slowly Proceed
  • 5 Finger breathing
  • Positive self-talk

Hopefully our students will be able to adopt these useful strategies in the run up to their exams! Good luck for your January exams Year 11!
