Parenting Ideas

A website is sponsored by the Australian Government and describes itself as "the complete Australian parenting resource from newborns to teens" and provides information as diverse as 'Parenting in Pictures' - step-by-step skills for baby care, to Cybercitizens - being responsible on-line for teenagers. It is a useful resource for parents.

Student Wellbeing Team

As the Student Wellbeing Leaders at MBHS we are working together as a team of 3. Our role is to provide a safe and supportive environment for all students. We are here to positively influence and support all students and staff with their individual wellbeing.

We are available at various times throughout the day (when we are not teaching) to support students with personal wellbeing needs. These needs may include: support with learning, friendships, bullying and harassment, mental health support as well as providing a safe space for students when they are not feeling comfortable.

Where appropriate, all student wellbeing leaders are able to make referrals to outside agencies to provide ongoing support for students and families.

– it might be about exam results, a job interview or talking in front of a group of people.
