FATHERING IN THE FAST LANE

On Tuesday, 26 March, over 180 fathers and grandfathers from the School Community gathered to hear Dr Bruce Robinson explain how being a good father can make a difference.

Fathers have a profound effect on their children, whether they like it or not. Yet, fathers often struggle to know how to be good dads.

Dr Robinson emphasized that children need time with fathers and father figures, and outlined the importance of BUS: Being there for your child, Unconditional love (not dependent on marks or behaviour) and showing your child that he is Special and has a special future (largely through spending time and having conversations).
