On 21st January, a motivational speaker, Roy Leighton, visited Newquay Tretherras to talk to Year 11 in the hope of supporting and inspiring them during this, their examination year.
In a two-hour morning session, the whole year group were assembled for a thought provoking presentation that covered creativity, motivation, learning styles, self-esteem, confidence and communication. During the time, the pupils were also taught helpful memory techniques for them to apply to their learning and revision.
Later, Roy led smaller group workshops with the students and repeated these sessions in the evening with parents of Year 10, 11, 12 and 13 students.
Jane Hurley, Head of Year 11 commented, “It was great to see Roy once again at Newquay Tretherras. The workshops were really good and Roy spent time interacting with the students and getting them to think about their development and their independent learning.”
