Student resilience and wellbeing are essential for both academic and social development. Not only do confident and resilient children with a capacity for
emotional intelligence perform better academically, these skills can
also contribute to their ability to create strong social bonds and
supportive communities, and to maintain healthy relationships and
responsible lifestyles. This is why we prioritise pastoral care at Trinity.
On Tuesday we were privileged to welcome Glen Gerreyn from The HopeFULL Institute as well as a great group of boys from St Andrews Lutheran College. Glen spoke to our young men in Years 10 & 11 as part of our International Men’s Day celebrations. The boys then had time to bond over a sausage sizzle and a fun game of footy afterwards - in exactly the way boys and men do bond, by doing activities together.
Meanwhile the Years 10 & 11 girls had a Health and Wellbeing workshop with our College Counsellor. They then got to got to relax through an Active Mindfulness session with Mrs Hanlon, Art Activities with Mrs MacMichael and Picnic Preps with Mrs Riddell. This was followed by a lovely girls’ picnic and bonding session - in exactly the way girls bond, by chatting and getting to know one another better.
Glen Gerreyn also presented on the concepts of Hope and Goals to all students in Years 8 and 9, and to Year 9 parents as a part of our Year 9 Rite Journey Return and Homecoming Ceremony. This was followed by some awesome refreshments made by specially our Year 9’s.
The key points highlighted on the day were the importance of believing in ourselves, finding our purpose and working together as a community.
