Back-to-school after COVID-19

As Australian kids start heading back to school, many face a range of emotions, anxiety, fear, and sadness as they pivot to a new school norm, temperature checks, schedule changes, and new seating arrangements in class.

For many this causes a sense of anxiousness. For those in their final year of school, tremendous sadness around their loss of a rite of passage in their final senior year. For fathers and families, they need us more than ever.
