On Wednesday 12th August The Wellbeing Team along with twelve Year 9 students attended the Synergy Schools Conference at ShireLive Sutherland.
The Conference is aimed at Year 9 students across the Sutherland Shire presenting valuable workshops on Mental Health, Relationships, Self Esteem and Leadership.
This years’ conferences involved a number of Key speakers including:
REGIME – a dance crew from New York, recently ranked 3rd best Step Dance Crew in USA! The dance crew focused on reminding our students to follow their dreams and be confident in whatever they chose to do in life.
David & Katie Kobler – from ‘YourChoicez presented on Relationships & Sexuality focusing on the use of using social media, sexual pressures, dating & relationships. They also ran a separate Boys & Girls elective exploring what it means to be a man or a woman.

A valuable day for all students.
