Year 5 to 12 Families – A special invitation
Feedback from parents and teachers is that student anxiety is higher than pre COVID and that lockdown has impacted students and families in unexpected ways. The importance of the wellbeing of our school community means that we are hosting an evening Parenting Seminar on the 15th June at 7:30pm.
Clinical Neuropsychotherapist and Wellness and Behavioural Consultant, Karen Ferry, will speak to Year 5-12 parents to address some of the more common challenges that families are facing around the issue of anxiety and online behaviour.
Karen speaks to families with practical and insightful strategies. Her holistic Christian perspective is very much in line with our school values and culture.
To remain COVID safe, families will need to register and places will be limited. Click here to register.
