The REACH Foundation have been providing several workshops so far this term to help support peer connections, develop emotional intelligence and improve overall mental health and wellbeing. They are a significant contributor to the overall student wellbeing program at the college, providing workshops for our year 7, 9, 10 and 12’s. For more information please visit their website https://www.reach.org.au/
Another supportive partner of our Student Wellbeing Program is Felstead Education. They have delivered a variety of mindfulness and positive mindset workshops to our senior school students. On Friday 12 August, the year 10’s will attend a presentation on the power of sleep. This is one of our favourite presentations – Brad – the founder of Felstead Education will take year 10 students through the science behind sleep and how it will support their academic progress.
Jemima Montag is an Australian Race Walker. She is a Commonwealth Gold medalist, an Olympian and recently finished fourth in the world in the 20k walk at the World Athletic Championships.
