Year 12

Assalamu alaikum Parents and Students,

Welcome back!

I hope everyone has had a relaxing and productive summer break and enjoyed time out with family and friends. My name is Ms Yasemin Bozkurt, I am the Year 12 Coordinator and I look forward to working with you on making this year full of successful and great memories.

So far students have had a safe and exciting start to the year trying to get back into the rhythm of their final school year. Whilst I believe these first couple of weeks have been a smooth transition from a very disrupted previous two years, I also understand that for some students, the excitement of back-to-school and Year 12 can in itself present anxiety, nervousness, and/or stress.

One of our main focus this year is to ensure the wellbeing of our student is well supported for academic success. At AIA we have a great team of professionals that students/parents may approach. Having the right mindset and feeling supported is a main stepping stone in a busy Year 12 school year.

“Young people can support themselves getting through some of the tough times in adolescence by learning and practising useful skills and habits. There’s a wide range of apps out there that can help build these positive approaches by helping young people to:

  • develop resilience and coping skills
  • track and manage their mood and thoughts
  • improve their learning and communication skills
  • track physical health, including sleep, movement and nutrition.”
