Wellbeing

Wellbeing

We know that being in lockdown can be stressful for some families.  For the next few weeks, the most important thing you can do is support your child’s wellbeing – they may be feeling anxious or distressed. Older children may be also feeling overwhelmed with the information they are seeing on the internet and they may need some guidance to help them find the most-appropriate information.

Keep in mind that children can express their feelings in many ways. I encourage you to speak openly with your children about what they are feeling.

As a parent or carer you can help your child with what they’re experiencing:
* Listen to their concerns – let them know you’re there for them and acknowledge how they’re feeling
* Make time to talk – provide an space for them to share their feelings and worries.
* Focus on strengths and hope.

There are a range of online and face-to-face services that can help you support your child. ACT Health has put together a page of information that families may find useful:  Ways you can support your own mental health and wellbeing | Health (act.gov.au)

After hours support is available:

  • Triple Zero: 000
  • Contact your GP
  • Lifeline: 13 11 14

Keep your child home if they are sick

Keep your child home if they are sick. The COVID-19 pandemic is not over. Restrictions are still in place - including in our schools - and we all need to be vigilant. This includes not sending children to school sick. If your child has any kind of illness, even if it is just a runny nose, they must not come to school. If your child is unwell at school, you will be asked to collect them. It is important that we limit the spread of disease during this pandemic. By doing the right thing you can help keep Canberra COVID safe
