Looking after yourself and others

The end of school is traditionally a time to celebrate all your hard work with friends. It’s the end of one journey and the beginning of another. It’s also a time of great change and uncertainty. Throw a pandemic in the to mix and well, here we are in a not so normal year.

By now, you would typically be planning who’s sleeping in which room, saving madly and thinking about what your week at Schoolies is going to look like. But thanks to COVID-19, your end of year preparations are looking very different.

COVID and Schoolies aside, you still have so much to be proud of. Finishing Year 12 is an amazing achievement on its own, but you’re part of the cohort that did it through a pandemic. You’re resilient, part of history and you graduated!
