With the holidays rapidly approaching we wanted to let our parents and students know about our upcoming holiday programs being run at BrainFOOD Education. There are several ctivities to keep your children occupied throughout the school holidays. The weather is lovely this time of year, so we completely understand if studying does not make the list of things to do throughout the holidays.

Selective school exams are also rapidly approaching so we will also be running a selective school preperation course which will span 3 days throughout the christmas holidays. Details below.

Does your child struggle with writing a great essay? The ideas are there, as is the knowledge, but the structure is lacking?

Essays underpin almost every subject in the school curriculum, so if your child can get the structure right, half the battle has been won.

These holidays we are focusing on essay writing structure. How your child can plan, compose and pen their thoughts in a structure which will guarantee better results across all essay based subjects.

Our Essay workshops will cover 4 topics and run for 4 hours (2 x 2hr blocks) and will cover the following

Session 1

  1. The introduction Template
  2. The Body Paragraph

Session 2

  1. Thesis writing and writing a conclusion
  2. Applying your template and what you have learned to exam and assignment questions

The above skills will give your child the knowledge and confidence to write great essays in school and beyond.

Our essay writing workshops are run by one of our amazing tutors, Mary, who has previously run essay writing workshops with rave reviews. The classes are both fun and informative, run in a structured manner and are small groups to ensure a tailored approach.

Each student will be provided with a take-home booklet which will outline what they have learned and also serve as a guide for future essay writing challenges.

Whilst this is not for everyone many students and families throughout NSW have found themselves with 8 weeks of school holidays, so it isn’t a bad idea for a quick refresher before school commences in the new year.

Due to demand we will re-open on Monday 6 January 2020 for Casual Bookings. Classes are available during the day as well as regular afternoon sessions. If you wish to get a head start before school returns with a few extra lessons please email us with your date and time requests.
