Following its Wellbeing Award win last year, Guernsey’s Ladies’ College Senior School has further underpinned its commitment to pastoral care with investment in a new Wellbeing Hub to support students, teachers and parents.
The College is currently the only school on the island to provide this offering.
A trusted source of support for parents, pupils and teachers, the Wellbeing Hub is designed by mental health and wellbeing experts ‘Teen Tips’, to meet the social, emotional and educational needs of young people as well as provide preventative, evidence-based mental health resources for the whole college community.
The Wellbeing Hub is a live interactive platform which provides expert support for the whole school community to access 24/7.
Students can receive and complete daily activities to support their own mental health and wellbeing, as well as benefit from staff who are trained to understand and meet their social and emotional needs via The Wellbeing Hub’s award-winning, preventative mental health CPD course.
Sixth Form student and Senior Prefect for the Wellbeing Action Team at The Ladies’ College, Leyla (pictured) said: “The Wellbeing Hub is a fantastic step for The Ladies’ College. It is full of information for parents and students, and answers lots of relevant questions many of us find ourselves asking. It’s definitely worth logging into, there’s something for everyone.”
The Hub also provides tailored resources for parents and staff, including monthly webinars, parenting ‘teens’ audio and video courses, podcast, interviews, tips and articles, live Q&As with specialists and a parents’ forum.
A parent from The Ladies’ College, commenting on the Wellbeing Hub, said: “I found the parenting course for teens absolutely brilliant. It gave me excellent insights into a teenager’s brain and many other insights to navigate parenting. I found it well presented and easy to digest. I’m enjoying using some of the tools such as reflective listening and giving positive feedback rather than getting bogged down by the negative.”
Deputy Principal Pastoral at The Ladies’ College, Dr Vanessa Mitchell, added: “We are thrilled to launch The Wellbeing Hub in the Senior School; it’s an incredibly beneficial resource for our whole College community.
“It provides a wealth of resources for students, staff and their families who can access what is relevant and most helpful for their individual circumstance. The monthly wellbeing webinars, parenting courses and the wide variety of student wellbeing activities are just some of the aspects of the platform that serve to further strengthen our pastoral provision at The Ladies’ College”.
