Late last year a report came out entitled “The State of Student Social and Emotional Health” by the Australian Scholarship Group, and was based on 4 years of research and surveys of more than 10,000 students across Australia. The results of the work reveal that a large percentage of students are experiencing social and emotional difficulties. (highlights of the report can be viewed at www.acer.edu.au/edlivewire/0703_socialandemotionalhealth.html )
To help students (and their families) in the later years of high school Pittwater Library will be holding a free talk at Mona Vale Library on Wednesday 13th Feb – called “Surviving the HSC” the talk will be about stress management techniques and will be run by an expert from the Macquarie Uni’s BRAVE programme. For details about this and our other FREE talks in February and March follow the link below to the Inside Break website.
