Hello High School

Jeannine Carrier (Deputy Principal)

HELLO HIGH SCHOOL! High school is an exciting new chapter, but it can also be a bit overwhelming for both students and parents. That’s why we were thrilled to welcome back the amazing Claire Eaton, Author, Speaker, and Youth Coach, to share her valuable insights and strategies with our Year 7 students and their families. 

Claire’s session was packed with tips, tools, and strategies to help make the transition to high school smoother for everyone. From helpful conversation starters to practical strategies for managing mindset, organisation, friendships, and stress, Claire left us all feeling empowered and ready for success in 2024 and beyond! Taleeyah, a Year 7 student, shared, “I enjoyed hearing her advice and tips about how to manage our learning and how to minimise our stress and deal with homework.”

Jethro mentioned, “I found the five-finger breathing exercise really helpful when I need to calm down.”

Sienna reflected, “Claire talked about how starting high school can be hard…she talked about the Big 6 and how we think about these things mostly at night. We then go on social media that over-stimulates us.”

We would like to thank Kolbe’s P&F for funding the presentation and a big thank you to Claire Eaton for equipping our students and their parents with the tools they need to thrive in high school!
