We are honoured to have received the following letter from Prime Minister of Australia, the Honourable Scott Morrison to our school community, along with a helpful guide on "Mental Health and Career Support for Young People" which you can find below via related publications.
Dear parents, guardians and carers,
As parents, like you, we want nothing more than to ensure that all children are healthy, happy and
receive the best start in life.
From the very beginning of this COVID-19 pandemic we have been determined that it would not rob
our children of a year of schooling or erode their hopes for the future.
With that in mind, many parents, guardians and carers have gone above and beyond to take on the
additional responsibility of home-schooling children. And of course, the hard work and initiative
shown by school principals and teachers remind us all just how amazing our school communities can
We thank you for all your efforts and sacrifices.
Most children are able to cope with the challenges presented this year, but some may feel anxious
about how the virus has impacted their lives and what it may mean for the future, especially those
in senior years.
We encourage you to read the attached Mental Health and Career Support for Young People factsheet.
It contains information and advice for students and parents to help support good mental health. We
hope you will find it useful.
By working closely with our health experts, state and territory governments, and community
organisations, the Government is committed to ensuring help is always available.
Together, we can get through these tough times and ensure our children have the best possible start
for a brighter future.
Hon Scott Morrison MP Prime Minister
CEO National Mental Health Commission
