2020 Term 1 Week 9

From the Counsellors

The implications of Remote and Online Learning are now a reality for many parents and adult carers as our nation acts to implement strategies in the prevention of COVID-19. The daunting task of establishing new routines and schedules, whilst juggling work responsibilities and other uncertainties is challenging for families and schools.

Some young people will transition seamlessly, whilst others may struggle. Therefore, it is vitally important for parents and caregivers to be vigilant in monitoring their children’s wellbeing. In addition, parents must continue to reassure and support their children in this time of change, and acknowledge this may be a stressful time for people of all ages.

The College is working hard behind the scenes to ensure each child’s academic needs are met, however, in addition, parents and caregivers will play a key role in providing students with the structure and groundwork for success. Young people will continue to look to their parents and other family members to keep things in perspective and help ease the transition to the different learning environment.

In this Special Report, parents and caregivers are provided with some guidelines on what may assist in navigating this time of transition with minimal disruption.

If you have any concerns about the wellbeing of your child, please contact the College for further information or seek medical or professional help.
