Lindisfarne staff are skilled and equipped with strategies and processes to ensure potential student issues are identified as they arise. A clear referral and support system is utilised. This is built on the back of the strong student-teacher connections formed to provide the right support when required. The wellbeing approach we take is one of nurturing and prevention through social-emotional learning, mindfulness and positive psychology initiatives.
We regularly communicate with parents and welcome their involvement in their child’s education and wellbeing. In particular, information sessions and workshops, delivered by a combination of staff and external experts, allow parents to share in conversations about relevant issues.
The Rite Journey
The Rite Journey is a unique educational program designed to support the development of self-aware, vital, responsible and resilient adults.
Given the current lack of Rites of Passage in the western world, young people are often left to invent their own, which are often unhealthy and unsafe. The Rite Journey reinvents the traditional process of a Rite of Passage to assist in transforming the adolescent from dependency to responsibility.
Lindisfarne began using this framework in 2019 with the Year 9 cohort. The School looks forward to a long and happy partnership with The Rite Journey in the future.
