Our school campuses are now both closed until the Easter term break commencing on Friday 3 April. Our staff are working hard to deliver teaching to our students through distance learning and online resources but none of us are used to this situation.

To help us through this potentially difficult time, Dan Lawrence, one of our Counselling Team based in the Primary Campus, has pulled together some resources for children and parents that he feels might be useful.





  • Brain Pop Video- This is a good, primary-appropriate brief video for kids, explaining the virus and how to stay healthy.
  • Coronavirus WHO (video) from the World Health Organization “What do you know about the novel Coronavirus that is causing a health emergency? “
  • GoZen - Videos, lessons and programs for purchase to manage stress and build resilience for kids.
  • Upsetting News - Useful video on upsetting news by ABC
