There is no underestimating the challenges being faced by parents today. Raising children can be a challenge at the best of times but with the added uncertainty of lockdowns and restrictions, parents face added pressure in raising happy, well and resilient young people. Whilst there is a great deal of information available to support parents, this can often be confusing and overwhelming when looking for guidance.
Siena College works with SchoolTV to address some of the crucial issues affecting families right now and this online resource is also designed to empower you as parents with credible and sound information through realistic, practical and ongoing support strategies. An excellent feature of SchoolTV is that it is available when you need to access it, in your own time. Evidence-based recommendations and strategies are provided by specialists who practice in the field they are presenting on.

The Wellness and Spirituality Tile on the Parent Portal allows parents to access the same information available to students. This tile is updated regularly with articles, videos and a range of support information from external providers and prepared by staff at Siena College. The Parent Portal is also updated with News Items about a range of social issues impacting young people.
If you have concerns about your child’s wellbeing, please reach out to their Head of House, the counselling team or myself.
