Parents' Association

The male role model is critical in a child's upbringing, so states Colin West, who spoke about the success and importance of "The Fathering Project" at the PA meeting on August 11. Colin, who is Schools Manager with The Fathering Project, said there were 25 schools in WA now involved with the project, which aims to enhance the role that a father or father figure can have in a child's life. The programme is targeted towards primary schools and involves forming a committee of "champion Dads" who organise social and/or skill-building activities for fellow Dads and their sons once a term. Any Junior School fathers who would like to be involved, please contact parentsassociation@scotch.wa.edu.au for more information.

Open Parents' Association Meeting

The next meeting is open to all parents and will be held in the Scotch Dining Room Annexe on Tuesday, September 8 at 7.30pm. Refreshments will be served and we would love to see you there. Come along and find out how your parent levies are spent and the work that we do as a parent committee. We are very keen to have more involvement from Junior School parents who would consider joining the PA.

Functions held

Another successful event, The Mid Year Cocktail Function, was held at the Blue Duck on July 2. The function was well attended, with 70 people braving the cold. Thank you to Susan Kennerly for organising. About 50 Year 11 parents attended their annual cocktail party at Steve's Hotel on August 7 and an enjoyable evening was had by all. Thank you to Peta Scott-Morey for organising.
