NEW: Wellbeing Ambassadors

We are pleased to share that we now have a team of students who will begin working as Wellbeing Ambassadors in the College, supporting students in Years 7-9 through the school day. The aim of their role is to promote wellbeing and self-care and they will be involved in working with other students in a range of activities, including sports, arts/crafts, dance, games and talk sessions, as well as being available in busy areas during break and lunchtimes. These students have completed training around mental health, self-care and wellbeing with Jo Philp, our School Counsellor, and will be identifiable by their purple lanyards.
