What a great day. We are just back from working with students at Tregonwell Academy in Bournemouth, helping them manage exam stress.
Throughout the day we worked with groups of year 11 students to find the best ways they can prepare for and take their forthcoming mock exams without being stressed. During our workshops we first gave them an introduction about the root causes of stress and then information on how it can be combated.
The combat came in the form of showing them simple breathing techniques, aided using visual on screen data through the Emwave stress machine which highlights when an individual is in positive coherence or in other words ‘stressless’.
The end result: The students felt more confident and optimistic about taking their exams, giving them a better chance of obtaining the grades they want to achieve.
Thanks to IAG Lead Holly Andrews at Tregonwell Academy for helping to organise the workshops. We are looking forward to returning again soon.
