Introducing SchoolTV

A Wellbeing resource for Loreto College parents and staff.

 

Today parents face a multitude of modern day challenges in raising happy, well and resilient young people. Whilst there is a great deal of information available, this can often be confusing and overwhelming for parents looking for guidance.

Loreto College has introduced a new wellbeing platform to help parents, students and staff. SchoolTV Wellbeing Platform is a new online resource designed to empower parents with credible and sound information with realistic, practical ongoing support strategies.

 

“The wellbeing of today’s youth has never been more challenging.” Michael Carr-Gregg

 

What will you find?

A range of topics each published monthly with comprehensive videos from leading specialists and organisations.

You’ll also find Fact Sheets, suggested books, apps, websites and much more from organisations such as Beyond Blue, ReachOut, HeadSpace and others.

Be an active member of our Loreto community - Volunteer with us!!

Volunteers are the backbone of every community and our students and staff love it when our families and friends join us in the school. We warmly invite you to register as a volunteer at Loreto College in any of the areas of interest.

  • Canteen - Be a friendly face and meet all the students in the canteen at lunchtime. Help as little or as much as you like, generally only once a month between the hours of 12pm and 2pm
  • Music and Performing Arts - If you love the performing arts you could join our Friends of Music and Performing Arts group or help with our stage productions.
  • Rowing - Become an active supporter of our rowing program. There are many ways you can help keep our rowing team sustained and time with all they need at regattas, and you can also join our Friends of Rowing Group.

You don't need to have any experience, just a desire to help out, be involved and be part of the Loreto community. Please note that all volunteers must have a valid WWCC and be third dose vaccinated.
