Updated Information Remote Learning Term 3

While the resources below are still current and most helpful please consider ReachOut as another valuable place for supporting young people.


ReachOut is a leading online resource for parents, families and schools to support young people and teenagers. Research has shown that there are 1 in 4 young people in Australia living with a mental health issue, with more than 70% not receiving the support they require. When a parent recognizes their teenager needs help, they are more likely to be receiving adequate and appropriate mental health support.


During this stressful time of remote learning and COVID-19, ReachOut have updated and added to their fact sheets, information services and community forums for parents. At PCC we are mindful of the effect remote learning and COVID concerns are having on our students. There are many ways that parents are able to support their young people, and ReachOut has targeted these concerns on their website. While these are mainly aimed at teenagers, they can be adapted for primary school children as well.

Also, if you feel that your child needs wellbeing support, please contact either their homeroom teacher or myself to discuss a referral for wellbeing support.


Take Care,
