> Parental/ Guardian Consent Form (DOCX)

All participants submitting entries to the Loungeroom Project who are under 18 will need to download this form for their parent/guardian to complete. This will need to be uploaded when you complete the submission form to send in your work.

Behaviour Agreement

> WAYTCo Behaviour Agreement (link)

All members of WAYTCo are required to read and agree to the behaviour agreement. This is not your usual ‘Terms and Conditions’ document. This agreement has been developed with the input of our members and it provides important guidance on what is expected of you and your peers.

Wellbeing Resources

At the end of each Loungeroom Project tutorial, your tutors share tips on how they take care of their wellbeing – both physically and mentally. Keeping mentally healthy requires listening to yourself and practicing self-care regularly (daily). It’s helpful to hear from others about what works for them. Take note when you are working through the tutorials.

There are many great resources available, some of which we share below.

Act Belong Commit

Act Belong Commit have an interactive quiz for checking in on your mental wellbeing, as well as lots of fabulous resources to assist in taking good care of yourself and others. Check out the resources page on WAYTCo’s main website for more Act Belong Commit resources.
