How many of your students are equipped to deal with all that life will throw at them? And what about your staff and parent community? Do they have the tools to support children and young people? Or even themselves?
These were the questions that compelled me to focus on resilience.
Pressures to perform academically, to balance the demands of schoolwork, family and friends, and to navigate issues around identity, self image and relationships are taking their toll on our children.
