Inside the teenage brain - the workshop for parents explores the changes the adolescent brain is going through and how it impacts on their thoughts, feelings and behaviour at school and at home.  It will look at why they turn to their peers more and some of the implications of this, why they become more risk taking and emotional and the reason their sleep patterns change.  Finally some of the strategies and changes that can be made to try and help your adolescent navigate these years whilst keeping a positive relationship with them and the lines of communication open will be explored!

Youth Speaks

Youth Speaks 2016The annual Rotary Youth speaks competition took place on Tuesday 27th January a public speaking competition where all schools compete. Year 11 students Lauren Guille, Savannah Goddard and Cameron Ashplant from La Mare de Carteret High School presented a speech “Being Young is Overrated” which combined the embarrassing issues of adolescence and the more serious growing concern of mental health issues affecting young people today. A stunning highly polished performance prepared by Mrs Champion and Mr Dodd. The group won both the intermediate and overall competition. We look forward to the next round of regional competitions due to take place in Southampton in early March.
