At our K-12 Catholic College every staff member receives their personal copy of the Vital Staff Newsletter in Monday’s inbox.
It inspires, informs and cheers us on to be a force for good in our learning community.

We have been subscribing to Vital Staff for several years. It is beneficial in that the articles, quotes and advice are always relevant to current issues that staff in schools face. It is great that we can open an email on Monday morning and have advice to assist us with issues we are facing in that very week. Furthermore that a newsletter focuses on the Wellbeing of staff and students alike is fantastic. We wouldn’t be without it.

Each week all staff at Emmaus are forwarded a Vital Staff Newsletter by the Principal. The commonsense, professional approach of the educators who produce the materials enable teachers and other school staff to reflect on practical matters that are directly relevant to the classroom and to building good relationships with students, peers and parents.  Such a beneficial publication is to be warmly recommended.
