AC - WELLBEING HUB REPORT

FROM THE WELLBEING HUB

 
We are delighted to welcome our students back to on-campus learning! The school yard is no longer bare and quiet but a hive of activity as they reconnect with their peers, friends, teachers. Play has resumed and games have been continued from where they were left early last term.

Overwhelmingly, Secondary students are most excited about seeing their friends and socialising. Some are looking forward to being able to ask teachers for help face-to-face and learning through class discussion with everyone together! Participating in practical PE classes and playing basketball at lunchtimes is also an anticipated highlight.

 
While our students settle back into their daily routine of attending school, it’s important to ensure they get adequate sleep each night, nutritious meals and physical activity. If you have any concerns regarding your child’s wellbeing or learning program over the next fortnight, please do not hesitate to contact his/her Homegroup Teacher (Secondary) or Class Teacher (Primary) to discuss these.
