The Living Well platform is targeted at students from Years 7-12 with specific programs and experiences strategically chosen for our students at their age group.
Our students experience weekly workshops led by their Dean of Year, focusing on wellbeing activities linked to the year group theme:
Year 7 Awe and Wonder
Year 8 Growth
Year 9 Story and Challenge
Year 10 Vision
Year 11 Community and Leadership
Year 12 Gratitude and Legacy
This platform also has a number of resources for the entire College community: students, staff and parents.
SchoolTV provides valuable resources and information from Dr Michael Carr-Gregg (Child and Adolescent Psychologist). SchoolTV provides informative articles and small video clips educating parents and guardians of issues confronting our youth and tips to help you as parents.
A number of excellent articles can be found on this page including resilience, raising boys/girls, trauma, grief, blended families, body image, mindfulness, gambling, sexting, bullying and much more.
Vaping, Drugs and Alcohol Report
Recently we had Paul Dillon speak with our Years 10-12 students on vaping, drugs and alcohol. This special report is very informative and provides educational viewing for parents in regard to understanding vaping, similar to what our Senior School students heard.
YSafe are great at providing information on online safety. Partnering with YSafe for the last five years, YSafe has worked with the College to provide our Online Safety Hub https://swan.cybersafetyhub.com.au/ for parents to use.
A great resource which is up to date and relevant for any parent in our community. Please feel free to share these resources with your family and friends within and outside of our community. YSafe spend time with our Year 7 and 8 students unpacking the benefits and dangers of the social media platforms. YSafe also presented to our parent community early in Term 1 this year.
