As a live-in teacher at a very expensive boarding school I was charged with keeping up the spirits of poor mites who were away from their parents some for the first time. One year 10 girl would rise at 4am each day to put in two hours extra study before breakfast to achieve her aspirations (or those of her family) to become a doctor. I tell this anecdote to local students when they think they are working hard!

In two weeks' time I teach my next study skills series to year 10 boys at the nearby private grammar school. Anybody have any questions or words of advice for me or the boys - how hard should they work, for instance? What is a good balance of study and sport, do you think?
