SURVIVING ONLINE LEARNING - School Counsellor Update


At St John Paul II Catholic College we are here assist Parents and Carers with managing your own wellbeing and supporting your teen through this tough time of online learning:

  1. Take a Breath
    When you feel overwhelmed, take a breath to calm yourself down. Try the 4–7–8: breathe in for four seconds, hold your breath for seven seconds, and exhale for eight seconds.

  2. Take Breaks
    Take breaks with your teen – go for a walk, cook a meal or play a board game. This will help you and your teen to recharge, away from the screens.

  3. Keep a routine
    Help your family keep a regular schedule. Consistent sleep and wake up times, meal times and rest times will help things feel a bit more in control.
