GOAL: Community Education and Support 

Scotch Oakburn College is committed to growing community support and engagement through information sharing on specific matter relevant to them, our students, and the greater community. To ensure an inter-connectedness and support for each other, the College will embark on a community education and support program that will extend opportunities for the community to learn and grow.  Opportunities are aligned to the College’s Mission, Vision and Values.

This program also encapsulates the Learning and Wellbeing Strands of SOC2035 

Senior and Beyond is a free two-hour online session for parents and their teens entering Year 11 or 12 at Scotch Oakburn College. It is a workshop designed to help teens continue to develop essential life skills in Years 11 and 12 and help parents help their teens reach their full potential. It also includes tips to help ensure these years aren’t too tumultuous and that the whole family manages the transition of their teen becoming a young adult.

Topics include

  • Getting on the right track with schoolwork
  • The importance of balance
  • Getting on together as children become adults
  • Preparing for post-school years including setting up for the university/TAFE/ working years, particularly if teens will stay living at home.


The webinar will be held on Thursday  9 February from 6.00 pm until 8.00 pm.

You must register in advance:


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. If any member of your family intends to join from a different computer, they will need to also register for it also, as one registration cannot be accessed by multiple computers.

This webinar is offered once only and will not be recorded or repeated. If you wish to access similar content, then you are best to consult Judith’s books – particularly The Bonsai Student.

Please note: This session is for parents and their Year 11 or Year 12 teen.
