Anglicare Familiy Support Services

 
Anglicare offer a Family Connect service here at the school on a Tuesday.  If you would like a referral for this support, you can speak with the Deputy Principal. Further support can be accessed at this website: http://betterrelationships.org.au/
Girls Group
We are currently also running a girls group for girls in years five and six, facilitated by Anglicare’s trained staff. The program will provide practical strategies and information around a range of topics including: 
·       Self-esteem
·       Self-talk 
·       Healthy Relationships
·       Friendship
·       Peer pressure
·       Resilience and bouncing back
·       Relaxation and mindfulness
·       Online safety
 The program will involve discussions, written and practical activities and games. At times we may use popular culture material i.e. songs and movie or youtube clips. These will always be in accordance with best practice and research and appropriate to the age range of the group.
Boys Group
The boys group will run throughout the year, also facilitated by Anglicare’s trained staff.  The program will offer a similar range of topics offered in the girl’s group, however, tailored to boys.
