Pre-Tertiary Mentoring Program for HSC Students

2 months ago

College is thrilled to be able to support a new initiative developed by current Paulines Jake Slaytor and Max Glanville; threefourfive.  threefourfive is a completely free online mentoring service for Year 12 students to help them navigate their way through the disruptions caused by the outbreak of COVID-19. The HSC is hard enough on its own, let alone when there is unprecedented disruption to all aspects of daily life. The program takes place on Skype or Zoom, and each high school student is paired with a volunteer university student mentor who leads a short, regular and meaningful one-to-one conversation which encourages motivation, goal setting and planning. By having mentors who have recently completed the HSC and are practically the same age as themselves, students are able to feel more comfortable talking about their progress and work, as their mentors are relatable and can provide relevant advice. Importantly, all of our mentors
