A Guide to Safe Partying

By | Wellbeing | No Comments

Celebrations, partying and socialising are a fundamental rite of passage and one of the most important aspects of a young person’s life. Although the prospect might seem somewhat daunting or even terrifying for parents and caregivers, keeping young people safe can often be a compromise and a challenge.

Your son or daughter may appear to be physically large and mature, but this is not necessarily matched by their emotional maturity and responsibility in behaviour. Most young people try to do the right thing most of the time, but your leadership as a caregiver is crucial. Ensure you are a good role model and discuss your personal views on drug and alcohol use. Your attitude towards addictive substances can have an enormous influence on the way your teenager approaches their own use.

Hosting a celebration at home or at a venue for your teenager can be a fun and memorable event. It all comes down to careful planning. It is important to agree on the ground rules well before your event is announced to ensure there are no misunderstandings later on. As the host you owe your guests a ‘duty-of-care’ and therefore should take all reasonable steps to ensure everyone attending the party is kept safe. Every party has the potential to get out-of-hand, as sometimes it’s hard for young partygoers to make good decisions. Communication and regular discussions are vital, particularly because young people are often faced with peer pressure to do things they prefer not to engage in.

Connecting Catholic Coasties

What a night was had by Central Coast Students! Be sure to come to the next Connecting Catholic Coasties.
On Friday 26th August, St Brigid’s hosted its’ first ever Connecting Catholic Coasties (CCC) Youth Event. With the theme of the night being ‘Hunger Games- Catching Fire In Faith’, we had over 150+ guests from all Catholic high schools around the Central Coast. We were privileged to welcome and host St. Peter’s Catholic College , MacKillop Catholic College, Warnervale NSW and St Joseph’s Catholic College East Gosford
Once everyone was welcomed, the students were placed into ‘Hunger Games Districts’ to complete a number of competitive challenges. The students listened to speakers talk about Pentecost and the Holy Spirit through scripture and personal testimonies and the night ended with lots of singing and dancing. 🔥
This event was entirely ‘student-led’, with each and every St Brigid’s student who facilitated demonstrating tremendous leadership. In particular, the following students are to be commended for their significant contributions:
Our MC’s for the night: Bella H, Natasha H & Bailey M
Game Hosts: Ben M, Laura P & Samantha M
‘District Leaders’: Tom M, Indiana C, Oscar S, Braydn H, Kyra K, Deacon W, Brayden H & Holly R
Testimony Guest Speakers: Cooper S & Emyli M
Band Members: Trinity F, Tamika S, Emyli M, Ben M, Cooper S, Sister Josie and Mr David Walker
As a community, we are so proud to celebrate our many students stepping outside of their comfort zone and exceeding expectations in their role. In particular, it is a demonstration of what our Youth Ministry students are capable of both individually and as a team.
So much fun as had, and we look forward to our next CCC night in Term 4!
