UNIVERISITY LIFE SKILLS

The last year of school life is a very stressful period for both students and their families. While preparing for admission tests, writing the best possible personal statement, applying to universities, and appearing for the grade 12 final exams all fall in place with time, one thing that students are underprepared for is 'transitioning into university life' and the skills one must possess to embrace it. 

Most university first-years settle down very well but what they miss the most is home and home-cooked meals. For students on a catered meal plan, everything goes well for a couple of months but afterwards, either monotony or health issues settle in. So, here is a very special 4-day program designed purely for schools leavers where they are introduced to the following:
