Wellbeing services for students during remote learning

July 22, 2021

by Deputy Principal, Mrs Elizabeth Ryan

As Lockdown No 5 extends into next week our boys are again forced to manage the uncertainty which lockdown creates:

  • Will we be going on Year 8 camp?
  • When will footy resume?
  • Will the GAT be rescheduled?

From past experience we know that this uncertainty creates a degree of anxiety in our boys. In order to support your son should you observe signs of anxiety or stress please find below a list of the resources available in our community to support your family during this time.
