Thank you to all of the Year 10, 11 and 12 families who joined us online for these interviews on Wednesday, 29 July. From all accounts this was hugely successful, and a great way for teachers to connect with families to discuss their daughter’s learning. Families who participated in the online interviews will receive a survey shortly and we would be grateful for your feedback as we continue to ensure we are responsive to the needs of our times, and to the needs of our students and their families.
Year 7, 8 and 9 interviews are scheduled for Wednesday, 26 August and you will receive information regarding these interviews in coming weeks.
Wellbeing Resources for Parents and Carers
As we find ourselves yet again in remote and flexible learning, we recognise that this can be challenging for both students, and parents and carers. New Department of Education and Training resources for parents and carers can be found by following the links below:
- Wellbeing activities and conversation starters – secondary
- Managing screen time, health and wellbeing.
The first is an easy to read and use resource targeted at particular age groups that supports parents and carers with suggestions for activities you can do with your daughter(s). The second has resources related to managing screen time, especially for our students and daughters who are in remote learning mode once again.
For those of you who are football fans, the Department of Education and Training and Melbourne Football Club have developed a new series of wellbeing videos. Featuring both AFL and AFLW players, the videos provide students with tips on resilience, managing stress and anxiety, gratitude and staying active.
Protecting Everyone’s Wellbeing and Safety
I would like to assure all our families that we continue to be mindful and vigilant about protecting the health and safety of our students and staff who are onsite. I would like to acknowledge the cooperation we have had from our Year 10, 11 and 12 girls who are on campus and wearing their masks. While I know they are uncomfortable, I would ask that over break times these masks stay on and that all girls remember to be physically distant from one another. I would be grateful if you could remind your daughter(s) about our expectations.
