Welcome Back to Term 2

I hope that the holidays provided some terrific family time for you all, and the Easter celebrations at the end of the holidays were inspiring for all involved.
The two Parent meetings scheduled for this term are both at the Rosebud Campus.
If we are to engage in conversation and involve parents across our school community, we think it is important to rotate the Parent Group meetings across all three campuses. Term 3 meetings will be at the Tyabb Campus.
I am hoping that the greater distance to travel for meetings not at your daughter or son’s campus will not discourage you from coming along.
‘Engage, Consult and Advise’ Meeting – the new Year 9 Program                             
7:30pm, Wednesday 10 May (Rosebud Campus in the Library)
This is an opportunity for parents to be consulted about the new Year 9 Program.
Mark DeFazio is the staff member who will run the program when it begins next year. He will talk through our planning so far, and we will welcome your thoughts, concerns or questions.
This is a great opportunity for parents who have daughters or sons moving into Year 9 in the coming years to be involved in the direction the program takes, and for other parents who might be interested or feel they have a valuable perspective to offer.
This is the only agenda for this meeting.
Parent Group Meeting
7:30pm, Tuesday, 13 June (Rosebud Campus)
The agenda for this meeting will be confirmed closer to the time, but a major agenda item will be to continue our conversation about ways of better engaging parents in the Padua community - at school, campus and house levels.
As always, I would welcome any thoughts you have regarding Parent engagement in the school. Please feel free to drop me a line on the email mharrison@padua.vic.edu.au
Hoping to see you at a Parent meeting soon!

Deputy Principal: Mission & Community
