Wellbeing and Covid19

As we return to lockdown and remote learning it’s important to be kind to yourself and try and not add additional pressure to an already challenging situation. Your wellbeing and that of your whānau is important as everyone adapts to this new situation.  All of us will be experiencing a level of worry during these uncertain times and it is normal for children to experience a range of feelings. Children often show signs of struggle through their behaviour and again this is normal and expected. 


To support the wellbeing of our students and community, we hope you find these resources helping in providing information, understanding and positive coping strategies.


Our school counsellor, Winnie, is available on Tuesdays and Fridays to meet with students and can be contacted on counsellor@pasadena.school.nz.  Please also get in touch with your child’s teacher if you have any concerns about your child’s wellbeing.
