Year 7 2018 Parent Welcome Evening – Friday 9th Feb

Parents and students of Year 7 2018 were welcomed to Bethany College on the evening of Friday 9th February with a presentation from psychiatrist Dr Toula Tsovolos and an opportunity to meet the teachers of Year 7. We thank all of the teachers and coordinators who were present for their support of the girls.

Dr Tsovolos explained the many changes that the adolescent brain experiences when starting high school and discussed synaptic pruning, the importance of sleep and the mental health continuum.

There was a wealth of information provided on the evening and Dr Tsovolos has kindly offered to share the slides from the evening.

Adolescent Mental Health

We thank all of the parents who were able to attend this event as it was a great opportunity for us to meet you. We hope that you found this information useful and we look forward to the rest of the year with the Year 7 Stars.
