Youth Aware Mental Health (YAM)

For the last three weeks, our Year 9 students have been involved in a government initiative aimed at helping students to be more aware of mental health. What is YAM? YAM stands for Youth Aware Mental Health. YAM is a culturally sensitive program that integrates into the school’s existing wellbeing initiatives. It is delivered by qualified instructors and targets all Year 9 students for five hours in three separate sessions over a three-week period. There are six themes explored through discussion and role-play in the program: What is mental health; Self-help advice; Stress and crisis; Depression and suicidal thoughts; Helping a friend in need; Who can I ask for advice.

An update from Mrs Meek

Mr Bray has asked me to write this last Bytes for Term 1, so that I can give you a glimpse of what has been happening in the Secondary Department. As I reflect on this past term, we have had a range of new things: new classrooms; a new student diary; a new way to stimulate thinking called Essential Questions (EQ); a new teachers’ aide; a new theme this year which is the ‘Many Names of God’, as well as a new parent teacher interview system! We also have changed a few things: Morning assemblies are now just on Mondays.

A lovely morning tea

Stage 5 Food Technology put on a lovely relaxed morning tea in the Secondary Courtyard on Thursday, 12 April. The guests included grandparents, siblings, parents and friends of the students. Also attending were some staff including Mr Bray, Mrs Meek, Mrs Thompson and Mrs Dallimore. On the menu were lemonade scones, sausage rolls, raspberry and white chocolate mini-muffins and some fruit. As it was a hot day we had cold drinks that included: lime and soda, iced tea and coffee frappe. A lovely time was had by all.

Stage 2 AFL Gala Day

The Stage 2 AFL Gala Day took place on Monday, 9 April at Nowra Showground. The forecast was for a very hot day. Fortunately, the day turned out to be perfect with some welcome cloud cover and some strong breezes to keep everyone cool. We also appreciated the gazebos and iced water set up for us by Mr Hefferan. The day is always well organised by the AFL team and after a few last minute adjustments to the program, students were soon playing their 20 minute modified games of AFL footy. Each team played three games and from all reports, our NCS teams did very well and enjoyed their day. Mr Bray dropped in to show his support and have his photo taken with a few of the stars.
