Community Engagement

We had a wonderful meeting on Saturday 7 April with our Filipino community. Brent, our board chair welcomed everyone followed by introductions.

The purpose of the meeting was to
  • connect school and families
  • connect families with families
  • get an indication of what families wanted for their children, what they valued and what determined success for their children
  • answer questions or queries
Parent feedback
  • want children to have a good attitude towards learning (lifelong learner)
  • develop the skills and attitudes to enable children to learn what they want (view themselves as learners)
A big thank you to Barb (AP) and Kate (DP) who gave up their Saturday morning to attend and provide much appreciated support. The parents were very positive about the meeting and would like to meet once a term.

A morning of learning, creating new knowledge and the opportunity for lots of sharing!
