It’s that time of year – how about try some of the revision activities that have been provided to us by various members. Some great ideas here for your students – to use now or for that Friday afternoon lesson next year when it all is a bit much.
Maybe some of these activities will help the students to read, review and recall in time for the examinations.
Thank-you very much to everyone involved in the preparation for the Scholarship Geography workshops – the last one was held last night.
Special mention must go to:
Jane Foster (Marist College) for co-ordinating it all with the School of Environment.
Dr Ann E Bartos from the School of Environment for co-ordinating it at the university’s end.
Jade Thomas (St Cuthberts College) for creating awesome resources.

and Steve Smith (Takapuna Grammar) for videoing all of the presentations.
