Whilst we have now come out of remote learning (and fingers crossed it is for the last time), the information below is still very relevant. The Lockdown Survival Guide was put together by Amy Donaldson, one of our new Mental Health Practitioners.  It has useful tips for students and parents to better manage the ebbs and flows of life and school.  

As we say to students daily, we care about each one of our students and their wellbeing. Your child’s mental health and wellbeing is our priority and we want to continue to provide quality welfare support to them. If you have any concerns at all about your child, please contact your child’s coordinator or myself and chaplain Gill Van Der Ende. We are available to parents via phone or text. Your child can also contact us directly by knocking on the door of our office. We are here to support you!
