Thank you to all the amazing staff at our THRIVE schools. It's been an interesting end to the term. Staff have been working around the clock to ensure if we do need to move to remote learning that everything is all set up to provide the best possible education and support for students and their families. You all deserve a well earned break. Stay safe and keep up the great work.

Shout out to the hundreds of students, staff and parent helpers from the four THRIVE schools who were scheduled to walk today from St Kilda to Frankston for the ICAN challenge. Whilst we are disappointed that the walk has been postponed, The amazing efforts and generosity of the community has seen over $91,000 raised for the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal, which will support some of the most vulnerable children at this very challenging time.

You can still donate at:

Today is international happiness day and to celebrate the school's have been running a range of activities to boost those positive emotions. Given the difficult times we are all experiencing you can get involved at home by:
- Asking your kids to tell you or draw for you something that makes them happy.
- Play a happy song or ask them what music makes them happy.
- Write a gratitude card to someone.
- Plan something to look forward to, big or small.
- Do something kind for someone.

How to help your family THRIVE during the coronavirus outbreak!

Concern over COVID-19 can make children and families anxious. Staying connected and engaged with your child is one of the best ways to support them. Children look to adults for guidance on how to react to stressful situations. Parents and carers can help minimise anxiety for children by providing factual, age appropriate information about the potential seriousness of the virus and teaching children how they can reduce the risk of infection and the spread of the disease. Teaching children positive and preventative measures and talking to them about their fears and worries can help them feel empowered and give them some control of their health and wellbeing.

There are several steps we can take to reduce the risk of infection and reducing anxiety at this time. Attached are some suggestions to help you and your family THRIVE during this difficult time.

If your child appears to be experiencing more significant and ongoing difficulties, please consider contacting some of the services below:
• headspace: visit www.headspace.org.au to find your nearest centre or call eheadspace on 1800 650 890
• Kids Helpline: 1800 55 1800 or www.kidshelpline.com.au
• ReachOut: www.reachout.com.au

If you are finding it difficult to cope or are looking for further support, please contact your G.P., the COVID-19 hotline
