College Principal’s Report

Read Time: ( words)

Our March newsletter comes at the end of a busy term. I am so pleased about how our students have approached this term, and at the progress that we have made over the first stage of the year. Our focus on a positive school climate and calm and orderly learning environment continues. Our high expectations of students being on time for class are being maintained across the term. We have also seen improved adherence to our uniform policy, routines to start and finish the week and new academic processes at Senior Campus, such as students sitting catch-up assessments in the Study Centre. These positive changes have required persistence from all our staff and students, and I am proud to say that it is starting to pay dividends and become more and more embedded in our school’s culture, which is great news. Thinking ahead to next term, I would like families to reflect on maximising attendance for Term 2. We have more than 120 students who have not missed a day of school this term so far – an amazing effort! Approximately 75 % of our students have missed between 1 and 10 days. Of course, there are many reasons for these absences but every day at school counts and I would love for us to reduce this figure going forwards.

I would like to congratulate all of our Year 7 and Year 9 students for their engagement with the recent NAPLAN tests – we have had the highest participation rate ever and this is an amazing effort. NAPLAN is ultimately ‘just a test’ but I think that the positive attitude to completing it also reflects an indicator of positive engagement with learning more generally. I look forward to sharing our NAPLAN results. I encourage our senior students to have a well-earned break over the holidays, but also to use this time to reflect and get organised for the busy term ahead. I was able to speak with our Year 11 and 12 students recently at an assembly – they are going really well. I know that maintaining stamina during this period is hard but we have every confidence in them – they have got this!

Student Agency Conferences were held last week. The level of engagement with Student Agency Conferences in general was lower than we expected, with approximately 38% of families making at least one booking. We would like to see this figure be much higher and are keen to hear your feedback to better understand what would help you to engage with this important process. The ongoing home / school partnership is important in our focus on improving outcomes for students across the College and we welcome feedback in this area at any time. Our showcase Night was held this week, and this is the first step in this partnership. we had an excellent turnout, and it was great to see so much interest in our school, and to see so many students there supporting the event. At the other end of the college, we will be holding a Senior Campus Information evening for Year 10 and Year 11 families on Monday 3 March to assist families to understand senior pathways and how best to support students in this stage of their studies. This event will be live-streamed, and I hope to see many families there.

There are a number of upgrades occurring on both campuses to improve facilities for staff and students. This includes improved AV equipment in the SC gym, more seating and recreations options for students, and also the refurbishment of teaching spaces. A Student Engagement centre is being created at MY Campus and this will be an ongoing and very positive project. Our Performing Arts Centre is progressing well at the Middle Years Campus: The completion date is still February 2024, and it will be fantastic to see the theatre rise up out of the ground over the next few months.

Finally, I was able to attend a community function at Mill Park Library this week to acknowledge Harmony Week – celebrating the diversity in our multicultural community. I am so proud of our students and staff because we reflect this richness and see it every day. I have been really pleased that we have been able to support our Muslim students to pray at school during Ramadan and it has been great to see how respectful these students have been. I know that we are also coming up to other major religious festivals including Easter, which many members of our school community will celebrate at different times depending on their background. Our students have been proactive in this space – today many of our middle years students have come to school wearing cultural dress, showing such pride in their backgrounds. I know we will continue to be stronger together and grow together as a learning community.

International Women’s Day
It was wonderful to have some amazing women from the Mill Park electorate at Parliament on International Women’s Day!
Thank you to the wonderful students and teachers at Al Siraat College, Epping Secondary College, Marymede Catholic College, Mill Park Secondary College, and The Lakes South Morang College for joining Lily D’Ambrosio MP for tea.
The women and girls of Mill Park are inspiring, and are leading our community towards gender equality.

Senior Years Campus – Principal’s Message

Read Time: ( words)

It has been a busy first term for Senior Campus students. I’m pleased to report that students have started the year exceptionally well, settling into their studies with enthusiasm. There have also been many highlights during the term, especially in the area of sports.

Following on from the success of the Senior Boys Cricket team who made it through to the Northern District Finals, the Senior Boys Volleyball team also played at Northern District level. They unfortunately went down in the final but played exceedingly well to make it to this level.


As the Holy month of Ramadan has begun, many students of the Islamic faith may want to pray and fast. During other months of the year, if any students want to pray, they are asked to do this during the normal lunch time and a prayer room is provided. During the month of Ramadan, some students may want to abide by the actual midday, or Dhuhr, prayer time. This is about 1:24 – 1:27pm for the next week, and then about 12:24pm after daylight savings ends. Students are able to be excused from class for up to 30 minutes of prayer during the month of Ramadan. A separate male and female prayer room is available in the office area of both campuses for this purpose. 
Students who want to use the prayer room at this time are asked to get a pass from the Campus Principal to allow them to leave class during this time.

Ramadan Mubarak!

 “Setting up for Success’’

On Monday 3 April there will be a ‘Setting up for Success’ information session for Year 10 and 11 students and their parents at the Senior Campus from 6:30 – 7:15pm. This will be a presentation on the difference between VCE, VCE-VM and VET, the importance of Mental Health and Resilience, Supports for students, and Good study Habits followed by questions and answers.

Italian Education Award

Claudia Pili, a Year 11 student, has won First Price in the Italian Education Awards competition (NSW). This is a competition where students wrote an essay in Italian, 700 words, on the Italian community here in Australia.

The essay requested four specific points and Claudia wrote a fantastic essay.

The ceremony will be held in NSW where the organisation is located.

Classroom Routines

This term we have focussed heavily on classroom routines that help students to self-regulate and better focus on their learning. Some of the routines include;

  • Getting to class on time
  • Being ‘Ready to Learn’
  • Brain Breaks
  • Circle time

We look forward to students reaping the benefits of consistent and predictable routines throughout their school day and hopefully they extend these routines into their afterschool studies.

Middle Years Campus – Principal’s Message

Read Time: ( words)

We have been very busy at Middle Years Campus having settled into Term 1.

Our Year 8 and 9 students have taken part in the Cave and Flourish program, which explores important issues related to adolescence such as identity and social connections. Both these year levels also enjoyed meeting Wendy Shields, the Youth Liaison Officer at Mill Park Police who was able to speak with them about pro-social behaviour, both in person and online.

Our Year 9 students have also taken part in the Morrisby Career’s testing, a wonderful program that helps to support our students in their thinking about future pathways. More recently, our Year 7 and 9 students also completed NAPLAN with extremely high numbers of participation.

Having returned from camp, our Year 7 students have been enjoying settling into secondary school life and last week we able to celebrate their achievements in a Year 7 assembly where our new Year 7 Leaders were also presented to their year level.

We are also very excited to announce that this week we will begin stage one of refurbishing a central area of the school (just outside our library) into a new Engagement and Wellbeing Hub for our students. The first stage of this will be converting one of the classroom spaces in this area into an Engagement Hub where students can access their Year Level Coordinators and Student Engagement Leader all in the one space, as well as a student regulation support zone. To compliment this space the College is looking, later this year, to introduce a therapy dog into the school. This dog will be trained through Paws Australia and be able to work with our young people in a way that supports positive engagement, wellbeing, and student learning.

As we move into the Easter holidays, I would like to express how proud I am of the Middle Year’s staff and students for the positive and enthusiastic way they have approached Term 1. There are so many exciting things to look forward to at our Middle Years Campus this year, and I could not be more thrilled with what I believe has been a settled and positive start to our 2023 school year.

This year our school will have the pleasure to host a language assistant who comes from Italy and who will spend seven months with us, helping our students to further develop their fluency in Italian. She is a very polite young lady, her name is Giulia, and we would like to kindly ask for your help in providing her with accommodation for the first four weeks, after which she will look for her own accommodation.

We would be very grateful to anyone able to provide such help. If you have a spare room and you would like to have some extra money available every week, you could express your interest. Generally, language assistants who travel around the world to offer support in schools and educational settings are independent and experienced travellers. Very likely, during school holidays, Giulia will be travelling around Australia to see as much as possible before heading back to Italy. These assistants have a support group in Carlton, they tend to spend time together and they are quite capable of catching public transport on their own. They can cook quite well and often, at dinner time, they offer to make something typical Italian for their host family!

The urgent need for help is mainly related to the first four weeks of her stay, after which she will choose where to go. Giulia will need accommodation from Saturday 22 April for four weeks. Should you be interested in offering your help and support while receiving some monetary compensation and some special Italian dinner, please do not hesitate to contact the Senior Campus. 

Thank you for your support with this matter.

English Language Centre

This term in the English Language Centre, all students prepared and presented instructional talks to teach their peers a new skill. These talks demonstrated the students’ creative abilities, as well as displaying their improving speaking skills.  

Students had lots of fun making balloon animals, fluffy bunnies and chicks, bookmarks, sketching birds, as well of a range of origami crafts such as cubes, sunglasses, flowers, fortune tellers and planes. 

Well done to all ELC students for participating in this project. 

Visual and Performing Arts

Read Time: ( words)

Year 9 Ceramics and Sculpture

Students have been learning about hand building techniques for sculptures. Students sculpt a sea creature out of a solid piece of clay. The clay is hollowed out from underneath and fins, tails and other features are added to express character and feeling.

The surface of each sculpture is then embellished with a range of clay tools. Repetitive shapes are used to create pattern and textural effects. Students then use a lighter clay slip across the clay surface. The sculptures will be bisque fired before being clear glazed and then fired to 1200 degrees in the electric kiln. The two clay types create contrast and visual interest to the surface of each work. Students complete a written evaluation where they reflect upon the materials, techniques and processes. They also determine the best methods for a group presentation such as plinths or vitrines.

Visual Arts VCE Success & Beyond

On Wednesday 15 March, VCE Visual Arts students attended an informative and inspirational talk by our guest speaker Irish Villegas who graduated from Mill Park Secondary College in 2021. Irish presented and discussed her successful  approach to the themes, ideas and techniques explored in her folio work in Visual Communication Design, Studio Arts and /Media subjects. She also discussed how her ambitious approach and success in the folio subjects led to her success in gaining entry to a Bachelor of Communication Design.

Year 10, 11 and 12 visual arts students gained an insight into her experience and approach to studying, art making, designing and multimedia and the thought process involved and the importance of annotations and reflective thinking. They were engaged in the presentation and discussion while viewing the folios. 

College Production Rehearsals ‘ ROCK OF AGES’ TEEN EDITION

The College Production Band members have been learning to play the classic rock songs from the 1980s performed by the glam metal bands of the time and have been learning to sing, dance and act while building positive relationships during rehearsals.


On Wednesday 22 March the Year 11 and 12 Art Making & Exhibiting students viewed the Top Arts 2022 exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria before attending a very informative presentation and folio viewing.

Students discussed the unifying and dominant ideas explored in the exhibition which included approaches to art in traditional and non-traditional artforms. This also involved the creative process and ideas based on cultural heritage – self-identity – what is most important to the individual and the meaning of cultural symbols and their relevance in the 21st century.

To view the exploration process of other students is an insightful experience as it reinforces art ideas and broadens student creativity. Afterwards, we viewed the Australian collection on the third level of the NGV where we saw some classic Australian masterpieces up close. Lunch followed and we all finished the day with a walk through Hosier Lane, where vibrant, street art grabbed our attention. It was great to see different gallery spaces in operation and students were left with many inspirational ideas to inform their own artistic processes.

Year 7 Dance/Drama 

Year 7 Dance/Drama students have been learning about Melodrama which is a style of theatre that uses exaggeration and stereotyped characters. They have been working with scripts and have applied the skills of gesture and stage direction to their individual roles based on heroes and villain characters. 

They have used their imagination and developed their skills and knowledge of drama, through fun activities and the confidence to perform.

On Tuesday 7 March, VET Dance students attended the Top Class Dance Showcase, as part of the VCE Season of Excellence. They watched two performances showcasing over 30 dances from both VCE and VCE/VET subjects.

The VCE soloists are choreographed by the students studying VCE Dance and a range of routines were showcased from the unit 3 Skill-Based unit and unit 4 Composition solo. The Skill Based solo showcases dancers technique and ability to use physical skills to complete different movement categories. The Composition solo follows an intention/theme and is marked based on the student’s ability to connect their movement to their storyline. 

The VET soloists perform learnt choreography from chosen dance elective styles. These include: Jazz, Street, Contemporary, Lyrical and Cultural styles. Mill Park students were lucky enough to watch our successful Top Class auditionee from last year Leila Pirova showcasing her Broadway Jazz routine on stage. 

Overall it was a fantastic and educational experience that allowed students to understand the standard at which their end of year solo’s should be at examinations. All students had lots to discuss and reflect on throughout the day and it was wonderful getting to see a past student celebrated for all their hard work.

VET Dance

On Wednesday 22 March, VET Dance students had guest choreographer and industry professional Gerard Pigg in to run a Mock Dance audition. Gerard did not take it easy on the class, creating style specific, sharp, intricate movements which were performed at a very fast pace. He shared his experiences about auditions he has hosted and been a part of and sat down for a 30 minute Q&A with the students after the workshop. 

Students had to follow an audition brief, present a CV and Headshot and register before entering the room. They followed the process beautifully, were attentive, positive and asked lots of relevant questions throughout the workshop.

The experience is a compulsory assessment for Year 12 VET Dance students and provides the students with real-world experience in a safe and nurturing environment. They are able to make contacts with industry professionals and have any and all questions they might have about getting into the dance industry professionally answered by a current working dancer/choreographer and company owner.

Year 7 & 8 Boys & Girls Whittlesea Division Tennis

Monday 27 February followed a week of heatwave weather and then a day of heavy rainfall which waterlogged the Epping Tennis Centre courts and delayed the Year 7 Boys’ competition. Over an hour’s delay while the courts were dried did not dampen the boys’ enthusiasm to compete. Led by Mohammadamin, the boys including Simeon, Lucas, and Cianan, played several friendly rounds of down ball with both the boys and girls’ teams of Mernda, Epping, and Hazel Glen.

Once the actual game of tennis got underway, it was soon apparent that the two teams of Mill Park and Hazel Glen were neck to neck for the Round Robin winners. It was not until the last game that Hazel Glen came out the victors over Mill Park.

Although we could not get a Year 7 Girls’ team together, three Year 7 students, Tanya and Juhi and Khushi teamed up with a Year 8 student, Sanaa, for the Year 8 Whittlesea competition on Wednesday 15 March. Without hitting a ball, a bye ensured the girls progressed to the NMR division to be played later this year.

On the other hand, the Year 8 Boys’ team of Ali, Yuvraaj, Nehan and Jayden not only encountered perfect weather, but also the one and only school team of Hazel Glen over which a win of 72 games to love made the day even better.

 A special thanks once again goes to parent Ms Chang, who not only ensured that her extra supplies of water bottles, sustenance and even tennis balls helped make the day run more smoothly for the boys, but her usual sense of positivity and encouragement was most welcomed.

We congratulate and wish both the Years 7/8 Girls’ and Year 8 Boys’ teams all the best for the upcoming NMR Division competition later this year.

Athletics Carnival

On Thursday 23 March, students from across the college competed in our athletics carnival at a range of different events. The day started off in a downpour with the clouds really opening up and leaving students snuggled under the shelters before finally the sun started to peak through leaving us with a beautiful warm and sunny day. The students competed really well, displaying the school values constantly throughout. The costumes were really cleverly done and the support from staff just underlined a fantastic overall day!

At the conclusion of the events we were left with a winning team- Redleap on 900 points followed by, Whernside on 648, Eaglet on 489 and Studley on 355. A huge congratulations to all students who attended the event and thankyou to everyone for their assistance on the day.


Middle Years Campus Showcase Evening

On Monday 27 March, over 80 families attended our MY Campus Showcase evening. As part of the Physical Education / Health departments display, prospective students and their families were able to participate in a variety of activities that students would participate in throughout their time as a student at Mill Park SC. These activities included participating on a Balance beam, Table tennis, Soccer goal shooting and juggling, Basketball Skills Challenge and undertaking a Vertical leap test. All students and some parents thoroughly enjoyed the experiences on offer throughout the evening.

Any members of the community who would like more information on the Physical Education / Health programs on offer at Mill Park SC are encouraged to contact David Maltby (College Physical Education) at

Year 10 Physical Education

As part of the Year 10 Physical Education curriculum, students are required to build their understanding of the Muscular system. To build students’ understanding and knowledge of the anatomical names of muscles students participated in an activity whereby they were required to outline a group members body and draw and label the main muscles of the body by using the correct anatomical terminology.

VCE Physical Education – Biomechanics Incursion

The students in Year 12 PE have been studying biomechanics as part of their Year 12 Curriculum. As a way to support their learning Mr. Guebala, one of the Year 12 PE teachers, organised a Biomechanics lab run by the highly regarded Metsperfomance. Students were able to perform a range of activities and use some of Mets state-of-the-art technology. Speaking to the students they all said that the incursion helped them consolidate the learning they had done in class and better prepare them for the upcoming assessment tasks.

Individual Student Sporting Achievements

Late last year Meekaeel Rafiiq (9G) was selected to be part of Under 14 Melbourne Victory Football  side for the 2022/2023 season.

Like Meekaeel and many others across the College we would love to hear about and celebrate other Individual Student Sporting Achievements. Please email Gary Wilson (College Sport coordinator) at about other Mill Park Sports Stars.

Middle Years Humanities

In Year 9 Humanities, students are learning about globalisation, its history and the technology that has facilitated increased interconnection in our world. Currently, they are studying the population boom and the challenges associated with both a booming population (as we’re seeing in Nigeria) and a declining population as we’re seeing in Japan. Students have been creating and analysing population pyramids which can be used to see a country’s past present and future population challenges.


In Year 7 Humanities, students are investigating what makes a city liveable and an enjoyable place to be. They are considering factors such as safety, stability, and infrastructure such as roads, public transport and internet. They have been comparing the liveability of different cities around the world and have begun to design and plan the layout of their own liveable town. In this process they will both self-assess and peer-assess town plans for liveability.

Senior Campus Humanities

On the Senior Campus, Year 10 students have been researching key events of WWII and paying particular attention to Australia’s involvement in the conflict. They have been preparing a report where they assess whether an event is historically significant and must consider criteria for what makes something significant. For the wide array of VCE subjects – from accounting to philosophy, business management to ancient history – students have been coming to terms with the increased rigour of senior subjects and the high expectations for assessments. It’s been a positive and productive start to the year!

RACV Energy Breakthrough Challenge 2023

We are excited to let you know about our Mill Park RACV Energy Breakthrough team made up of students at our school participating in the RACV Energy Breakthrough Challenge in November of this year. The Energy Breakthrough challenge is an exciting and innovative initiative designed to inspire and engage young minds in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The event provides a unique opportunity for schools to showcase their students’ skills and creativity, while also promoting teamwork and community engagement. Participation within the event offers students a hands-on learning experience that encourages critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity. Through the event, students are given the chance to design, build, and race human-powered vehicles, as well as create multimedia presentations that showcase their work. The Energy Breakthrough event is a great way for students to understand the importance of sustainability and environmental awareness. By designing and building human-powered vehicles, students are encouraged to think about alternative modes of transportation that are both environmentally friendly and energy-efficient. In the last few weeks the Mill Park Secondary College received delivery of the HPV named “Menace” intended as a base platform to build and learn off. The team has started to disassemble their Human Powered Vehicle in preparation for the 24 hour endurance race taking place in November of this year, while doing so the Mill Park HPV Racing team have already started documenting and recording what has been done to showcase in the multimedia presentation. The Mill Park Secondary College Energy Breakthrough team is excited for this challenge and prepared to tackle any challenges that lie ahead. We will be keeping the community posted every step of the way.

Student team manager: Aydin Dow.

Any questions or queries please feel free to contact Team Manager Michael Kneebone at

Whittlesea Tech School

The Year 9’s visited Whittlesea Tech School to begin their enquiry to start building their prototypes to battle our rubbish problem at school. Prototypes include the use of Apps, designing new bins and working with microbits in order to encourage students to want to use bins within the school.

Harmony Week – March 20 – 26

Harmony Week is a time to celebrate multiculturalism in Australia, which focuses on inclusiveness, respect, and belonging for all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background. Everyone who migrates to Australia brings their own cultural and religious traditions and take on new traditions, which collectively enrich our nation. Harmony Week is inclusive of Harmony Day 2023 is Tuesday 21 March, which is the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Here are some facts and figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2016 Census:

  • Almost half (49%) of Australians were born overseas or have at least one parent who was
  • Australia identifies with over 300 ancestries.
  • Since 1945, over 7.5 million people have migrated to Australia.
  • 85% of Australians agree that multiculturalism has been good for Australia.
  • Apart from English, the most common languages spoken in Australia are Mandarin, Cantonese, Arabic, Vietnamese, Italian, Greek, Tagalog/Filipino, Hindi, Spanish, and Punjabi.
  • Over 70 Indigenous languages are spoken in Australia.

Celebrating Harmony Week

School, workplaces, and our wider communities can all come together to celebrate diversity in many ways, either hosting an event or attending a local celebration.

The student representative council at Mill Park Secondary College organised a casual dress day on Friday 31 March, encouraging all students and staff to dress in Orange – the colour selected to represent Harmony week – or cultural clothing, raising funds to donate to Mission Australia. The colour orange signifies social communication and meaningful conversations, as well as relates to the freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect.

There is a poster and song writing competition available to all students in all schools in Australia – more information including how to enter, can be found here (entries close April 16) –

More information about Harmony Week can be found here – 


Ramadan began in the evening of 22 March 2023 – it is determined by the Islamic lunar calendar, which is based on the phases of the moon. As such, the first day of Ramadan often falls 11 days earlier each year, and last for 29-30 days, depending on the moon cycle. This year Ramadan is expected to end on the evening of 21 April 2023.

During Ramadan, most adults will fast each day from dawn to dusk, including abstaining from drinking, eating, immoral or sinful acts (e.g., gossiping), and anger. People may also engage in other acts of worship including prayer and reading the Qur’an. It is a month of self-reflection and developing positive habits that can continue and encouraged once Ramadan finishes.

Anyone can wish someone Happy Ramadan and do not have to be participating in Ramadan to say such greetings e.g., Happy Ramadan, Happy Eid, Ramadan Mubarak (have a blessed Ramadan), or Ramadan Kareem (have a generous Ramadan).

During second week of Term 2, we will be celebrating EID across both campuses.

Information for Students and Parents/Carers


While we know sleep is essential for good health, research shows that many children and young people are not getting enough sleep on school nights. This can affect thinking, concentration, memory, reaction times and mood.

Research shows about 12% of primary school-aged children, a quarter of 12- to 15-year-olds and half of 16- to 17-year-olds don’t get enough sleep on school nights. The recommended amount of time to sleep for primary school-aged children is 9 to 11 hours. For teenagers, it’s 8 to 10 hours.

Signs that your child is not getting enough sleep can include:

  • low mood and irritability during social interactions
  • reluctance or arguing about getting off devices and going to bed.
  • falling asleep during the day
  • difficulties waking up for school and sleeping in late on weekends to catch up.
  • changes to communicating or interacting at home.

You can help your child to improve their sleep by:

  • establishing a regular sleep pattern and consistent bedtime routine
  • supporting them to avoid using electronic devices such as smartphones before going to bed and in bed.
  • encouraging your child to exercise and spend time outside in daylight, steering clear of vigorous activity in the hour before sleep.
  • encouraging them to wind down and relax before going to bed.

If your child is still having trouble sleeping, has persistent problems with low mood, excessive daytime sleepiness, restlessness in bed, severe snoring or wakening unrefreshed, despite getting adequate length sleep, they should see a doctor.

Parent/Carer sessions


There is an information webinar for parents/carers and members of the community on Understanding Sleep Hygiene, held on April 4 from 5.30pm – 6.30pm. Click here for more information and to register for the event.

Innovation Youth Centre (IYC)

Parentzone and IYC are hosting an in person 2-hour session in Bundoora titled “Parents Building Solutions – Teens”. This ‘taster’ session helps parents/carers come up with solutions to common parenting challenges to help build a better connection with your teen, understand why teens behave the way they do, and discuss and share ideas that work.

How to stay healthy over the school holidays

For some young people, school holidays can be challenging. Our usual routine is taken away, such as not seeing friends, teachers as often as we may like, potentially resulting in feeling bored, unsupported, and sometimes anxious.

Here are some ways to help look after yourself:

Eat well: good balanced diet can help with sleep, energy levels, and general health and wellbeing. This means less fun foods (e.g., high in sugar) and more foods such as veggies, fruits, whole grains, and water.

Sleep well: developing a sleep routine can help you sleep better (e.g., try to wake up the same time each day, regardless of what time you get to bed)

Be socially active and get involved: spending time with friends help build and keep existing friendships. You could get involved with volunteer work, hobbies, clubs, or sports to help keep connected with the community whilst also meeting new people

Play: make time to just have fun to recharge your battery and reduce stress and anxiety.

Remember to also look out for your friends and loved ones and check in to see how they are doing. If you are worried about them, you can let them know that you are there to help.

Attached are some professional supports that you could contact if needed.
