From Monday, October 25, school students in Greater Sydney will be going back to school – in person, in classrooms.

For so many, it will be the first time after months of lockdown they will physically meet with their peers and teachers.

What should kids and young people expect as they return? 

How can we all care well for our students as they adjust and cope with this shift?

Valerie Ling is a clinical psychologist and founder of Centre for Effective Living.

She spoke with Hope Afternoons about the possible effects on students as they head back to the classroom. She also offered practical and emotional tips for supporting them.
