Building a Strong Community Connection
Over the past few weeks, King’s staff have been making phone calls to College parents to find out how they are managing with their children’s’ online learning and life in general, in the midst of COVID-19. As a Christian college, the health and wellbeing of our entire community matters, and staff members welcomed the opportunity to provide a listening ear, offer advice, and pray with families. While many parents were 'coping well,' others took the time to share some of the very real challenges they were facing.
As we progress through Term 2 at King’s, with a dual mode of learning, different virtual experiences, and the challenge of change, we also have the unique opportunity to discover new and innovative ways of thinking, learning and living. As we trust God’s promise to never leave us or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:8), we can also rest assured that He will give us all we need to navigate these changes, and to help us prosper in adversity. King's staff members will continue to phone home throughout the term, to check in with families and offer assistance, where possible.
Our wellbeing team at King's also offer a comprehensive range of resources and services to help support our community. Parents and students can access Wellbeing resources, and a link to the Parent Referral Form for Wellbeing Concerns, on Compass Web. To navigate to this via the College app, click the Compass Web button, and then the 'Wellbeing' button at the top of the page.
We encourage families to remain connected with your church and with our King’s community via our Social Media platforms, during this time. Share your success stories and challenges, and support each other, so we can collectively find hope throughout this season. We are stronger together.
