From the Principal
We have focused as a College this week on our wellbeing.
Schools are now one of the few organisations that have the community, focus and time to stop and have genuine conversations about the wellness of our society. It is a great opportunity but also a great responsibility. As you will know from our communications to you and the actions we put in place, we take it very seriously.
Wellbeing, whether it be physical, mental or emotional, is not just NOT being sick. It is best defined as a state of being healthy and happy. A physically unfit adult can feel they are 'well' if they don't have something like a cold or cough. The goal though is for 'wellness'. The focus in our College on wellbeing is aimed at being the fist line of defence for our entire community in having the resilience, positivity and grit to encounter and overcome the challenges of growing up with the complexities our young people face.
We don't do this alone. In 2022 we will be increasing the number of Parent Workshops aimed explicitly at supporting child and family wellbeing. Please do keep a look out for these, and remember that we are willing and able partners in supporting your child's wellbeing in a really intentional way.
Please do not forget that the College will be represented in the 2021 Hike for Homeless. You can sponsor the hikers or join the team by clicking here.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support. Please remember our year 12 students as they complete their ATAR exams over the next few weeks.
