Forming a major part of the school’s REACH program, the talk gave parents an insight into building resilience in their children, reinforcing their learning at home and sharing what was happening at the college.

REACH was developed by the college to deliver quality social and emotional learning programs in a classroom environment.

The goal is to enhance each student’s capacity to be happy and resilient and have a clear sense of purpose and direction.
