SchoolTV: A Digital Wellbeing Platform for Siena College

Over the course of the last two years, the Student Wellbeing Team has conducted a range of parent forums on topics such as the importance of mindfulness, sleep, food and nutrition, and recognising our character strengths to best support our families in raising healthy and resilient young women.  The Student Wellbeing Team, however, believes that a more effective approach than school based seminars would be to give families access to wellbeing professionals throughout the school year on a digital platform. 

SchoolTV has been designed to respond to the needs of schools to provide families with credible, independent and ongoing information on the challenges facing young people.  It is a unique online platform providing ongoing guidance and realistic strategies from leading experts.  SchoolTV is supported by organisations such as Headspace, Deakin University and the Alannah and Madeline Foundation.

SchoolTV addresses a range of student wellbeing topics that affect families. These include:
 •  Surviving Year 12
 •  School Transitions
 •  Exam Jitters
 •  Internet Addiction
 •  Social Media and Digital Reputation
 •  Cyberbullying
 •  Drug and Alcohol Use
 •  Depression
 •  Anxiety

SchoolTV will launch next week and an email will be sent to all families with details on how to access this directly from the College website and Siena Central. We encourage all families in the College community to view, use and interact with this invaluable resource.
