On Monday 19 November, our College Counselling Team ran a
workshop for the parents of our Year 7 2019 cohort.
workshop included information and discussion of the Developmental Tasks of Adolescents,
the Teen Brain, Tips on Making a Successful Transition to Secondary School and
Managing the Challenges and a detailed look at the Online World and our kids
use of Social Media.
Some very useful websites
that were referred to during the presentation were:
(article on the Adolescent Brain)
(Parent Online Coaching)
Kidshelpline is a wonderful resource for kids 24/7 - Free

A series of parent workshops; ‘Parent as
Coach’ ; will be run in 2019. An excellent opportunity to learn more to support
your work at home! Further information will be available early 2019.
