Communities at Work's Galilee School is pleased to launch 'In The Know', an information series for parents and guardians, aimed at addressing and promoting positive messages in the community, focused around the mental and social wellbeing of young people.

In The Know Galilee School - Communities@Work - In the know is an information series for parents and guardians, aimed at addressing and promoting positive messages in the community, focused around the mental and social wellbeing of young people.

About ‘In The Know’ Information Series

This initiative is an opportunity for parents and carers to better understand and deal with contemporary challenges affecting young people today so they can exercise greater positive influence in the lives of the young people in their care.

It demonstrates our commitment to helping young people from the school gain an understanding of society, access positive role models, and form positive relationships outside the school setting.

We hope to organise at least one session as part of the In The Know series every term. Galilee School staff will be available to speak to parents and carers after each session. Light refreshments will be available. The second #InTheKnow session will be held on 17 March 2022 with focus on Mental Health First Aid.

of mental health problems and professionals.
