HEALTH AND WELLBEING DURING REMOTE LEARNING
The COVID-19 situation we are currently experiencing is extraordinary and it has created temporary, but significant changes to our daily routines. Whilst the school staff is investing a tremendous amount of time and effort to ensure that students continue to maximise their potential during this period of flexible and remote learning, we understand that the challenge goes beyond academic excellence. The health and wellbeing of the students and their families are paramount.
The news headlines, the increased police presence, the sight of civilians wearing masks and most importantly the inability to socialise with friends and family all contribute to elevating anxiety levels in some individuals. Open conversations and reassurance is important during this time, as a community, it is our duty to be kind and look after each other.
The Department of Education and Training Victoria has developed a resources webpage for parents and carers to support their child’s continuity of learning from home. Please click here to access the resource.
At CJC, the students work with a program called the Resilience Project, which aims at preparing the children for a successful and happy life by offering tools to improve their resilience in difficult situations. Please click here to access the Resilience Project webpage where you can find more about the program, and find useful links and activities.
Maintaining cybersafety is a critical role for parents during this time. Please click here to access the Australian government resource regaring cybersafety.
If you have any concern about your child’s wellbeing, please contact their classroom teacher to discuss the issue.
We use this opportunity to thank all the families and carers for their amazing efforts so far. You are doing a great job and we appreciate your support.
