Rc Timetable change
When we began grade 10 we were put in spiritual life classes and we told we would be with these people all throughout senior school, that we could rely on each other and support each other and grow together. This is going to be one of the many changes starting in 2017 as Redlands college has decided to change it’s timetables. Each period is now going to be 50 minutes long and with most subjects being a double students will have to sit in class for 100 minutes. And let’s face it; even now with shorter classes students struggle to keep engaged in a double. Studies show that teenagers have an attention span of 20 minutes, these new changes will disengage students, take away their much needed study halls and give them less opportunity to stretch and walk between classes which is a health concern. And to top this off students who are sick or who have sporting commitments representing the school will miss ample amounts of work covered in class during their absence due to the longer periods. Your voice can be heard through this petition so stand up for your future at Redlands College and sign this petition against the time table changes as students and as future leaders of the college.
