Student Newsletter Name Winner: ALG CONNECT!

Thank you to all who voted for a fantastic newsletter name! Keep your eyes peeled for all our updates on this newsletter. You will also be able to access previous newsletters in the archive section below.

A LITTLE REMINDER; Make Time For Yourself! ✨

Studying and working can get overwhelming fast, remember to eat regularly, drink lots of water and keep a regular sleep pattern.

Take breaks and let yourself do something fun! You’re human and need rest, but also let yourself get out there and be creative! Don’t feel like you have to work and study all day every day, let yourself relax and just be you. Catch up with friends or family with a phone call and schedule in some de-stress time.

Remember to do little self check-ins every so often, even when not studying. Does your back hurt? Have you eaten? Are you sad or stressed? Don’t put anything before your physical and mental health, you are your top priority! Let yourself breathe, and take utmost care.

Stay as healthy as you can and if you ever need someone to talk to, someone who’s not a friend or one of your Student Services members, we have a free counselling service, click here to find out more.

PERTH

RELAX AND ENJOY THE SUN ☀️

Take a much-needed mid-term mental health break with the sun shining and even more warm weather to come, King’s Park in the heart of Perth City is perfect for a chill hangout with friends.

King’s Park is home to blooming wildflowers & and native bird species, with plenty of open grassed areas. So, pack a bag of snacks for a quiet little picnic with gorgeous views of our city and Swan River. Have that well deserved mid-term breather!

Or maybe, before it gets too hot and if you’re down south, test your stamina with a hiking adventure at Bonyowla Regional Park. This stunning nature reserve can be a bit of an intense walk, but the view from the very top is so very pretty. Connect with a little bit of nature to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city!

SYDNEY

STUDENT OPERATIONS


CANVAS UPDATE!

Did you spot an error with your learning resources?

If you see any errors or opportunities for improvement in your learning resources, click the help button in Canvas and then click on the ‘Student Course Feedback’ link. This is a place to let us know if you see spelling or grammar errors, anything that doesn’t make sense or instructions that need improving. Your feedback will be reviewed and updated regularly by ALG.

 

IT’S WEEK 6!

We’re well and truly underway with this term and assessment deadlines are fast approaching! Please remember to turn Canvas notifications on so that you won’t miss a thing when it comes to updates from your trainers!

If you are having any trouble with submitting your assessments or if you have any questions about how to use canvas or your Student Portal, please contact your Trainer or Student Services and we will be happy to help where we can.

Language, Literature and Numeracy Class Update!

LLN Classes will soon have all new resources free for student use, to provide you all with the means to help improve communication and academic skills in your own time on your own terms. There will be links to a number of FREE TO USE third party sites and short videos on specific skills to help you develop more in specific areas. The goal of putting this together, is for students to be able to access these resources at any time and to pick and choose which area you may need the help in, it’s all up to you!

No stress of having to attend more classes, or having to submit anything by a certain time, this is all up to how you wish to study so you can feel free to go at your own pace!

HALLOWEEN COMPETITION


On the week of Halloween we ran a Jellybean guessing competition in each of our campuses. We had 4 lucky winners who got to take home their yummy jar of jellybeans. Thank you to all of our students who got involved this Halloween and keep your eyes peeled for our next competition!
