IConnect … With Learning, In Partnership, In Faith
2010 Catholic Schools Parent Conference
11-12 September, Australian Catholic University, North Sydney Campus
This is a conference for parents, teachers and school leaders.
Keynote speakers are Mia Freedman on Pop Culture, Technology and Your Kids – what parents need to know and Danielle Miller: Beyond Toxic – Raising Amazing Girls.
Of the 24 workshops that make up the rest of the conference, half are pertinent to the broad theme of mental health in the context of students and parents.
As the conference is only a day and a half long, you can only attend four workshops, though, and it’s really quite a difficult choice. Topics include:
- New Australian Curriculum
- Internet Safety
- Raising Strong Kids
- Children’s Learning Styles
- Faith and Families
- Family School Partnerships
- Meditation and Spirituality
- Grief and Loss for Children
- Dealing with Teens, Alcohol and Drugs
- Gifted Education
