The Fathering Project

The Scotch Parents' Association is facilitating the development of an initiative called the Fathering Project, initially for Junior School. PA committee member David Grey introduced the Project at the initial meeting of the 2016 class reps.

The Fathering Project is a WA based organisation that is focused on assisting the father figures in boys' lives to become better dads. This project has been rolled out across a number of (mainly) Primary Schools in Perth. It provides a forum for dads to meet other dads in a social environment and for boys and dads to be involved in social outings together and offers a whole range of resources that can be used to assist fathers. Our aim is for a number of interested fathers across the Junior School to work together to set up a pilot project to be rolled out during the year with the support of Junior School.

Until the next Thistle.
