Parkside Community College is passionate about making a difference to the lives of young people. We want every student to experience real success and to go on to great things. We believe in one another and in working together. We act with generosity and integrity. Whatever issues our students, their families, the school, our team or the community face, we always support, react and pull together. Finally, we are committed to making a difference; we are not passive players in young people’s lives but active participants. This is a reflection of the school’s curriculum intent statement and core values:
- Excellence - 'try your best'
- Community - 'play your part'
- Responsibility - 'be considerate'
Achieving positive mental health in school is important for students to be able to participate fruitfully, increase creativity and productivity and build strong social relationships.
Our definition of mental health is “... a state of wellbeing in which the individual has confidence in their abilities to respond to a variety of challenges, can cope with the normal stresses of life, work productively and interact with others."
