We have commissioned motivational speaker David Hyner to create resources for students to enjoy and use. We suggest that students start their day with David's video about motivation and goal setting and finish the session with the Memory Techniques video. We will share the links to these videos with you directly prior to Thursday 2nd July for your use.
