Engagement & Wellbeing

Thursday 6 August

Highvale Primary School is Committed To The Victorian Child Safe Standards

 

Student Leaders

Last Friday, I held a Google Meet with our school leaders to explore how they would be able to undertake their leadership roles during remote learning. We explored a few ideas and will meet again this Friday to create an action plan. I think there is great potential to think outside the box and I look forward to seeing what our leaders come up with. Watch this space!

Supporting your Children and Adolescents during Home-Based Isolation

Resilient Youth Australia have listed some great tips and ideas for parents during remote learning. I know in our house, the daily timetable of activities is useful as everyone has meetings at different times and it is easy to lose track of the day's activities. I will attach the PDF here for you to read. I hope you find it useful.

 

Parent Support

During this time of remote learning, one major focus is on the wellbeing of students and families.
