Waiting For Results From Exams

We all understand that exam time can be a difficult period of the year – so well done to all school students. However, waiting for your results can feel worse than the exams themselves! So keep the following tips in mind. They’re all reasons why you shouldn’t waste time thinking about exams and tests that are already done and dusted!

Get Active In The Sunshine!
Working hard at revision and homework is always important. However, by the time exams are over, you’ve probably spent a lot of time indoors, sitting at your desk. But now, that’s over – you’re free to do whatever you want for the next couple of months!

Spend Time With Friends And Family
A big part of unwinding is spending time with those nearest and dearest to you. So when you’re off to try out new activities and so on, you should ask people to join you! Especially if you’re new to your community, school, or the area you live in, this is a great way to get to know new people.

Make Time For Your Favourite Hobbies And Past-times
What hobbies do you have? If you’re still learning what you love to do, then you should try lots of different activities. There are all sorts of things you can try in your local area, without too much cost or planning – the following are just a few:

  • rock climbing
  • pottery and ceramics
  • painting and drawing
  • football, or similar sports
  • swimming

Just ask your foster carers if you need help getting involved in these kinds of activities.

Enjoy Your Holiday
If you’re very lucky, your foster parents will take you away on a trip somewhere! And if they do, be sure to thank them for the lovely thought.

If you’re a foster parent reading this, be sure to share it with your foster children, to give them some ideas. Also, please let us know if we’ve missed anything out?

We care so that you can.
