Practical advice for students

To be successful, you have to be well prepared! What are good places to study? :

  • You will learn best in a quiet place like your bedroom or the school library.

  • Noise, such as television, people talking, loud music, impairs concentration and makes studying more difficult.

  • It is best to always study in the same place.

  • You must have on your work table all the necessary materials (pencil, notebook, ruler, manual).

  • You must remove from your work table all objects that could distract you (comics, material from other subjects, games, etc.).

  • The room where you study should not be too hot but it should be well lit.


What are the best times to study? :

  • You should start preparing for an exam at least two weeks before.

  • The day before the exam, you should only have to do one last review; not start studying.

  • It is essential to plan your study periods in advance.

  • It is much more profitable to study when you are rested.

As a parent, what can I do?


First, communicate
Take a break and talk with your child about the importance of completing high school. You could change his future…Having a discussion with him about the importance you place on his studies is essential. Take the opportunity to remind him that you are there to help and support him in case of difficulties.

Help him get organized
By being well prepared, we face difficulties more easily. Help your child complete the school year successfully:

  • Make sure he has all the necessary school supplies.

  • To follow the rhythm of his weeks, make a copy of his schedule.

  • From the first days, agree with him study periods at home to better manage this time essential to academic success.

  • Find out regularly about work to be submitted, upcoming exams, oral presentations to prepare.

Periods are often more conducive to dropping out among young people: at the start of the school year, after the holiday break and during exams in June.


Identify the source of demotivation:

  • A strained relationship with a teacher, heartbreak, bullying, etc. What seems trivial to you may be out of all proportion to your child.

  • Experiencing repeated failures is enough to shake a student's self-confidence and convince him that school is not for him.

  • The lack of long-term vision, which characterizes many teenagers, makes it difficult for them to project themselves into the future. They have few ideas of what they want to do later; no wonder getting a degree is becoming less urgent.                                                                                                                                                         

  • Increase your motivation

Je m’appelle Edwige Aimée, apprenante au CFPF Sorawell de 2002 à 2005. J’ai beaucoup apprécié mes années de formation, particulièrement l’ambiance de famille et la façon dont nous étions formées. Je me souviens que je recevais toujours des encouragements lorsque j’étais découragée, les monitrices étaient vraiment gentilles.

J’ai reçu à Sorawell la formation professionnelle mais aussi humaine et spirituelle. Cela m’a été d’un très grand apport dans ma vie professionnelle. J’ai connu Dieu à Sorawell et j’ai aussi appris à avoir confiance en moi. Je garde de très bons souvenirs de Sorawell.
