Thanks to all parents for their support in getting their sons back to school for Term 3. This can be a tricky term for students, as they deal with assessments, sport, friendships, social pressures and homework – and are often cooped up inside due to winter weather. 

During this time, it is important that you keep channels of communication open with your son and check-in regarding his progress at school and his wellbeing. If you have concerns, do not hesitate to contact his mentor teacher or House or Year Level co-ordinator.

The Wellbeing and Learning and Teaching teams are working through a process of reviewing the progress of all students here at the College. In the coming weeks, you may hear from staff with a request for a conversation or meeting. These conversations and meetings are designed to support your soon to be his best, and achieve his full potential. Please support us in making sure your son is on the right path and getting the very best out of himself and his education at De La Salle. 

School TV

A reminder to all parents that De La Salle offers the School TV service, which can be accessed from Ollie and on the College website’s useful links. 

The School TV site provides videos and information about a wide range of topics such as anxiety, depression, social media and cyberbullying, positive parenting and diet and nutrition. The material can be accessed at any time, and the videos are short and easy to engage with.
