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
