Parent resources

Our school recognises that raising a child, particularly a teenager, is one of the most challenging and rewarding things a parent or guardian will do in their life.  Assisting parents to raise happy, healthy and productive young people will result in enhanced academic, social and behavioural outcomes for each child in our school.

ReachOut Parents - A new service to help parents help teenagers. When a parent recognises a teenager needs help, they’re more likely to get it. On this site you will find fact sheets, stories, practical tips and tools covering a range of topics, issues and experiences that are relevant to teenagers aged 12–18 years.

Better Health - an A to Z guide of health, medical information, services and support to parents. 

Raising Children Network - the Australian parenting website.

Headspace - providing early intervention mental health services to 12-25 year olds.
The service is designed to make it easy as possible for a young person and their family to get the help they need for problems affecting their wellbeing. This covers four core areas: mental health, physical health, work and study support and alcohol and other drug services.

Triple P Parenting Program - gives parents simple tips to help manage the big and small problems of family life.  Problems like toddler tantrums or teenage rebellion. Self-esteem issues. Bedtime battles. Disobedience. Aggression.

School A to Z - practical help for parents to support your child's learning.

Family and Child Connect - a free service to help you with the challenges of parenthood.  Every family is different, and it's important that you find solutions that work for you.  Family and Child Connect will talk to you about your worries, and connect you to the right local services that can help you.
