Cool Kids Program

In Term Three we are going to run the “Cool Kids” anxiety support program for students from Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 & Year 6. The Cool Kids Program is a world renowned cognitive behavioural therapy program developed to teach children and parents skills that address anxiety.

The program helps children to recognise emotions such as fear, stress, and anxiety. It helps them to challenge beliefs associated with feeling nervous and encourages them to gradually engage in fearful activities in more positive ways. There is an additional component for parents that informs them of these principles and also teaches alternate ways of interacting with your child.

The program will run for 9 weeks (1-hour session per week) and will take place during school time. There will be around 6-8 students in a group.

If you think your child would benefit from this program, please click here to read the checklist.

Brendon Pye
Wellbeing Coordinator

Reminder - No Payments on Compass Please

It is fantastic to see families quickly making the change to the new Catholic Education app, Compass.

Just a gentle reminder that at this point in time we ask that no family fees or other payments be processed through Compass as it is not set up to talk to our Financial software at this point in time. This means that we are unable to easily identify who is making payments.

If you have processed a payment through Compass, can you please contact the Front Office so that we can look into the matter for you.

As a reminder of what Holy Trinity is now using Compass for, please see the blurb below taken from the Term 2, weeks 1 & 3 newsletters;

Catholic Education is rolling out a new school management platform called COMPASS. This platform allows parents and carers to access up-to-date and meaningful information about their child and their child’s progress. Compass includes many different features (please note we will not be utilsing the payment feature in Compass at this stage). 

At present we will be utilising the following features:

  • Submit absence notes
  • Book parent-teacher conferences
  • View your child’s academic reporting
  • View your child’s attendance records
  • Update basic contact information knowing your personal data is secure
