How to support a homesick boarder

How to support a homesick boarder

Homesickness is a common part of Boarding School, particularly in the first few weeks. This is why students are encouraged to stay at school for that period, including weekends.

It can be helped in a number of ways:

Discuss the issue of homesickness: Talk to your child about homesickness, when you have experienced it in your life, how you felt, how long it lasted and how you coped with it.

How to teach your children about social media

How to teach your children about social media

Social media is a fantastic tool to stay in contact with friends and easily access content you are interested in. Like everything though, it has its pros and cons.

A recent study by the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) at Oxford University revealed that of 515 interviewed 12 to 15 year olds, 14 percent had had a 'negative' online experience in the past year, eight percent had been contacted by strangers, almost 4 percent had seen someone pretend to be them online, two percent had seen sexual content that made them feel uncomfortable, and three percent had seen something that scared them.

Comment from the Principal – 23rd February 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

Another week gone by but hardly one associated with summer weather. This said, we do still need to be aware of the appropriate protection for all in our community.

We are registered as a SunSmart school and one of the latest bits of advice from the organisation is that hats should be worn outside when the UV index exceeds level three, regardless of the season.

How to make friends at school

How to make friends at boarding school

The transition to Secondary School can be daunting, especially if none of your child’s friends are attending high school with them.

If your child is energetic, outgoing and bubbly, making friends probably isn’t a big deal.

Principal’s Comment – 2nd February 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

It was good to welcome our new students to the School on Tuesday for their morning of induction designed to help their transition into the life of the School. All seemed to go well, and the start of the term for the whole School seems to have gone equally smoothly.
