Carrum PS, together with our local schools network, is developing a series of seminars for parents, carers and guardians of students in primary and secondary school.
The first event, held on 24 November 2016 at Patterson River Secondary College, featured Andrew Russell, High Performance Manager at Hawthorn Football Club. Andrew shared important messages about how we can support our children to be their best. He discussed the importance of life balance, the power of diet and sleep, stress management and the power of the mind.
The 2017 Parent Seminar Series launched on Thursday 30 March 2017, with Susan McLean, Australia’s foremost expert in the area of Cybersafety and young people, presenting an evening session for parents and families at the Performing Arts Centre, Patterson River Secondary College.
On the 6th December 2017 our school social worker, Morgan Hunter, held a parent education session at Carrum PS looking at understanding anxiety in children and the strategies we can use as parents to support our children when they have anxious moments.
