On Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th September all yr 7 students attended a Safe on Social session, which revolved around aiding in the protection of student wellbeing, reducing vulnerability to cyber-bullying, and helping students make informed choices about social media. Kingscliff High School has committed to supporting our student population with a comprehensive Social Media Safety Certification Program. This was undertaken with the guidance of Safe on Social Media Pty Ltd. The school started this program as a response to managing the ever-increasing risk of misuse, abuse, cyber bullying and online stranger danger across social media networks. We have a number of comprehensive how to guides and cheat sheets available which parents/carers and all students from yr 7-12 can view on our website. These include: Facebook, Instagram, Tik Tok, Snapchat and YouTube. Topics such as settings, passwords, bullying and harassment and much

Exploring new thoughts, beliefs and ideas. And breaking what does not serve anymore. Students involved in the Whole Youth Program took on the challenge of breaking pine boards inscribed with words describing thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that are not working for them anymore.

The program offers new skills and encouragement to make wholesome decisions in their lives and provides the tools for teenagers to cope with changes and offers skills to prevent violence and

For the first time in many years, due to increased manufacturer prices, the P&C have agreed to implement a price increase of $5 on every item with the exception of the unisex shorts & skorts. The price increase does not apply to second hand items we sell. If you do have some second hand clothes we would love you to donate them to the school, as all the profit we make goes back to supporting our school and our children. You can find the Uniform Shop price list below and we now have the ability for parents to pay over the phone, to save parents coming into the school unnecessarily. Once the payment has been confirmed the student can pick up their uniform.

LATEST COVID-19 ADVICE NSW SCHOOL STUDENTS FOR TERM 3 Last updated 21 August 2020 Last week we updated our school community the latest advice from the Department of Education, based on AHPPC and NSW Health advice.  We would like to emphasise a few key points to our families: Students with symptoms of COVID-19 cannot come to school until a negative test result has been reported.  If your child is unwell, even with mild symptoms of COVID-19, a negative test result will need to be presented to the school before their return. Students who come to school and demonstrate any flu like symptoms will be sent home. Our school continues to encourage students to follow established hygiene practices, eg hand washing, coughing / sneezing into elbows, not sharing food or drink. Parents / Carers and other non-essential visitors are not allowed on site at
