A Little Aroha

by Lucy Naylor

We are more conscious than ever that the pandemic and world events are creating tensions and anxieties. With that in mind, we are constantly considering well-being and ways to help students develop resilience and, in many cases, simply cope. For example, through 'The Stanley Bay Way', we celebrate and practise kindness intentionally throughout the school day.
