Allegra School - Youth Wellfund Coffs Harbour Markets

Youth Wellfund Coffs Harbour Markets

At Allegra School Coffs Harbour we understand a little extra support, flexible learning opportunities in small classes and an environment free from prejudice can make a significant impact to a student's confidence, wellbeing and overall school experience.Allegra is a safe learning space for students who find studying and socialising in mainstream schools challenging. We welcome young people struggling with anxiety, depression or trauma, with neurodiversity (on the spectrum) or learning difficulties, who have experienced bullying or who identify as part of the rainbow community.

We believe a small school, makes a big difference. Allegra offers small classes in an adult learning environment. We prioritise personal growth, respectful relationships and instilling a sense of belonging. Allegra offers an inclusive and flexible learning environment tailored to support students in Years 9 & 10. The subjects are the same, it's the delivery that is different. Our goal is to provide young people with the opportunity to realise their potential on both academic and personal levels.

We are not an easy alternative. We are an opportunity to reset, reinvent and refresh your academic and personal goals and provide a support network to assist you working towards those goals. Our students are carefully selected, those willing to commit to bettering themselves while being supportive of others are more likely to be enrolled.While Allegra has a range of support services to assist students with barriers to learning, we do not offer one-on-one behaviour intervention or high levels of behaviour modification.

As an independent school we are a member of the Association of Independent Schools of NSW and our aim is to offer all eligible young people the chance to grow and mature while undertaking their high school education in a safe and supportive environment. At Allegra we seek to include those young people whose lives may be complicated, challenging or require a particular understanding in order to achieve success.

Congratulations are in order for our dedicated students and exceptional Student Support Officer, Danielle, for their outstanding efforts in promoting Allegra at the Coffs Harbour City Square markets. Their enthusiasm and commitment shone brightly as they engaged with the local community, articulating the numerous benefits of attending Allegra and emphasising the school's inclusive ethos. A special acknowledgment goes to Ariana, whose eloquence and poise during an interview for a community organisations showcase video truly highlighted her as a valuable member of our school. Special thanks are also extended to Seb, Lily, and Viridian for their invaluable contributions, actively participating in conversations with the public.

In continuation of our community involvement, the Mid North Coast Local Health District (MNCLHD) Healthy Communities Grant supported the mental health and well-being of local youth by supporting this project. Our students, committed to raising awareness, distributed stickers with a design created by an Allegra student, symbolising two hands making peace. The figure 8 represents neurodiversity as a valuable and essential part of the human experience. This initiative underscores our commitment to making the community safer for neurodivergent LGBTQIA+ and multicultural youth, ensuring every young person feels safe and included. Together, they exemplify the spirit of Allegra and its inclusive and positive impact on the Coffs Coast community. Well done, team!
