Let’s get underway!
It is already the start of Term 2, 2021!! Make note of all your due dates as early as you can, so that you can organise your study time and plan ahead for the rest of the term.
As always, time to put together your weekly routine, including sleep schedules, study time and of course much needed down time. The earlier you get into the groove of studying and staying healthy throughout the week, the easier it will be to maintain it throughout the term! Once you’ve got your routine sorted, it will help your brain to maintain all the information you will be soaking up throughout the term which means less cramming at the end when it comes to exam time!
Winter is so close now! It is already getting darker in the mornings and we have a higher chance of rainy weather this term. Make sure to allow to the little extra time it will take to travel to campus. Set your alarms, get enough sleep and plan ahead!
Now that it’s getting colder, please keep yourself as healthy as possible, take your multivitamins to keep your immunity up this cold and flu season, and for our fitness students please ensure to warm up correctly before your practical classes!
IMPORTANT: UPDATED ATTENDANCE PROCEDURE!
Please note that starting this Term, students are responsible for their own attendance and signing into each class. There are QR Codes on the outside of each classroom door so please scan this code and enter in your details prior to the commencement of each session. Where your class is allocated to an external venue such as the Gym or Yoga Studio, the Trainer will mark your attendance manually themselves.

TERM 2 ENGAGEMENT EVENTS
Every term ALG hosts student engagement activities during the term that all students are invited to attend. Our goal for these events is to get everyone chatting and mingling.
There are other students on campus who you have maybe only passed in the hallways or outside of campus, but never had a chance to talk to. We want to bring everyone together and let everyone have a chance to meet everyone else because you might make lifelong friends.
Be on the lookout for any upcoming events in the term you may want to participate in! More details to come!
