A series of tailored resources providing principals and educators with relevant insights, supportive information and practical tips on the topics of resilience, mental health and wellbeing.
In December 2020, Camp Australia conducted a survey with principals, parents and primary school aged children to find out the effect of COVID-19 on the children. The survey revealed that principals and educators wanted to learn how to build resilience among their school community and recognised the need to prioritise their mental health. Informed by last year’s survey, we have collaborated with leading specialists to provide our partners with tailored and supportive information to help them, their staff and their students.
To ensure we deliver on our promise to be the Partner of Choice, we designed the Insight Series around our partners’ needs but also their schedule. The Series is available through video, audio and transcript so that it can be consumed by principals and educators when, where and how it is most convenient for them. And even more importantly, we’re giving them the platform to ask their questions, so that the content is tailored, practical and relevant.
When you partner with us, you will have exclusive access to leading specialists who will provide relevant insights, supportive information and practical tips on the topics of resilience, mental health and wellbeing. The excerpts below will give you an idea of the Insight Series. For more information or to partner with us and benefit from access to leading specialists, please contact us at [email protected]
