This week TAS engaged the services of Kirra Pendergast from Safe on Social to upskill staff, students and parents on the ever-changing world of social media. The sessions were very well received and there have been plenty of further discussions around this space. We were able to record Kirra’s parent session which can be accessed below:
Kirra has also kindly provided a number of ‘cheat sheets’ for parents to help navigate a range of topical cyber issues, which are available below:
This Friday, there is a suicide prevention workshop in Uralla hosted by Roses in the Ocean, in conjunction with Healthwise. The flyer is attached below. This may help parents generate a deeper understanding of the complexities of suicide, and give parents confidence in recognising and supporting individuals at risk. We are also working with an external organisation to facilitate a parent workshop on campus, to address the above topics and upskill parents. Dates are yet to be confirmed, but we are hopeful this important event will be before the end of term and if possible, recorded and sent to parents who are unable to attend in person.
