Central Coast Grammar School has launched its own podcast series.
Available on iTunes and direct from the school’s website, the Let’s Ask Better Questions podcast series takes a deep dive into some of the issues facing young people and families in today’s increasingly fast paced and busy modern world.
The school connected with families and experts in the community to find out the burning parental and educational questions, topics and issues.
Throughout 2020, leading experts and psychologists as well as teachers, parents and students, will discuss topics relevant to families today.
Plus, resources and links to websites will be provided online to help further.
CCGS Headmaster, Bill Low, said the podcast was a modern resource for families.
“We want to share the experiences, concerns, challenges and ambitions of young people and families today and provide practical and useful resources for everyone.
“Young people have a vital role in shaping our future.
“As a school, we can help support families by opening up conversations about current issues,” Low said.
In the first three episodes, the podcast series tackles school readiness, managing technology at home and school, and teenage anxiety.
Episode one, ‘Is there a right age to start school?’ brings together a school psychologist, a kindergarten teacher and the mother of a kindergarten student to explore and unpack the importance of age, skillset and emotional development in school readiness and the do’s and don’ts of getting children ready for big school.
Episode two, ‘Do school children have too much or too little technology?’ brings together tech and wellness experts with students to deep dive into the complex impact of technology on children’s everyday lives at school and at home.
Episode three, ‘Teenage anxiety: Catchphrase or crisis?’ brings student leaders, teachers and psychologist, Dr Kylie McIntyre, together to discuss anxiety and provide advice for students and parents/carers on managing it.
