Dr Justin Coulson - Guest Speaker

On Tuesday 27 July 2021, Dr Justin Coulson visited the College for a special event, thanks to our Parents & Friends Association.


Titled "Love, Limits & Laughter", this event with Dr Justin Coulson was engaging and informative with many laughs, appreciative applause and our community left more positive & better off as parents. This was a unique event and a fantastic opportunity to get to know others and gain tools needed to create happier families.​

Justin touched on the following themes:

❤️ Love - get the nurturing right & this will ease stresses.

🚫 Limits - talking about life post-Covid, reduction in activities & the need for boundaries around devices etc.

🥰 Laughter - having more fun as a family.​

He also spoke about:

• Resilience

• Communication

• Anxiety

• Positive Parenting

• The effects COVID-19 has had on the family unit (feelings of disjointedness & isolation for parents & students.)

It was a greatly beneficial presentation for our community and we appreciate Dr Coulson's time and sharing his expertise.
We appreciate our P&F for making this possible - look out for future events.
