Tree of Knowledge

On Thursday 5th March 2015 Years 11, 12, 13 & 14 received GCSE Module Results. Well done to everyone!

Also on this date Year 12 benefited from a Tree of Knowledge event, Laugh in the Face of Exams’, led by Ben Best.

This event focused on motivating and inspiring our Year 12 pupils to achieve their potential. The approach was one of humour and theory set in a context which supports everything we are trying to do at Ballyclare Secondary School.

The pupils quickly engaged with Ben Best and enjoyed the sessions leaving happy and aiming to fulfil big dreams.

On reflection this interactive workshop certainly helped pupils to:

  • Adopt a more positive attitude
  • Learn to deal with stress
  • Aim high to improve results
  • Understand the importance of emotions in learning
  • Set goals for the future
