It is two days before school resumes for the 2014 second term. Yes this is the last weekend to get rid of those funky hairstyles and some of the piercing that most teens were donning at HIFA and the Dairibord rugby festival.

It is that time again to be close to your books, back-pack and obviously the lunch-box.

Going back to school after the cool break can be exciting, nerve racking, and hectic for students and teachers.

Winter time is a time for refreshment and renewal, though not a favourite of many but some researchers have concluded that it is the best season for proper studying.

Again going back to school gives students a chance to make small adjustments or significant changes depending on where they are heading.

But how prepared are you for the second term?

Zengeza 1 High student Anesu Nyumba said he is ready for school.

“I have been revising what I did first term and waiting for the school opening.

“To me second term means being given a second chance in 2014 to adjust your understanding on books,” he said.

Makanda Ropafadzo (17) of Gutu High School said second term will be a busy season because students will be picking up from where they have left.

It is a new term

Never come into a school or classroom with preconceived notions.

Every student who walks into a classroom deserves the chance to come in on a clean slate. Remember every class and every student is unique, and a different teacher may provoke other behaviour patterns.

The first few days and weeks of school will often set the tone for the entire term. We aise you to start planning for it the minute you step your feet in the classroom on the first day. The reason being to avoid being loaded with much work.

The new term also comes with its package such as extra-curricular activities.

For those who are sport fanatics then use your talent wisely but remember all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

Some might say that starting a new term is never easy, and it’s especially tough if you’re transferring to a new school.

A survey conducted by CLS revealed that the first few days of school are often only half days, so make the most of this spare time. Pick up any textbooks you failed to buy over the summer, and research extra lessons by talking to people who have taken them or give them — it’s never too early to start planning.
