Does Your Teen Need Untangling From Technology?

Trying to monitor and manage your child’s screen time can be a source of constant contention and stress in the household. Having some strategies up your sleeve to negotiate technology boundaries can mean finding that balance of screen time with other activities and reconnecting (with each other) again.

The Raising Children Network is an excellent resource for parents looking for ideas for healthy screen use, ensuring online safety and creating a family media plan. For information and tips, use the following link

Amica = Little Friend

This week, the Year 7 AMICA groups will commence. Held at lunchtime on Wednesdays, fortnightly, and facilitated by our Year 10 AMICA leaders, Year 7s are placed in small groups to assist them in building new friendships and help ease the stress of transitioning to high school. AMICA leaders, in anticipation of the program commencing, have been hosting games and activities on L’Hermitage.

If you have any concerns about your daughter that you would like to discuss, please feel free to contact Louise Scuderi, College Counsellor on:
