If any of you would like to run another event either in our school or external to our school this year or following years, I am more than happy to help support you in making this happen. This could be anything from a BBQ, to camping, bike rides, or whatever your imagination produces (within reason of course).
One of the biggest issues Year 7 students often tell us about is not being able to find or fit into a group or make friends. Remember the main reason we created Male Connect is to teach our children what healthy relationships are and maintain a strong connection in the community. The purpose of Male Connect is to involve fathers, father figures and significant male role models from the community into the school to work with our students and become positive mentors to not only their own child, but others as well. There is an increasing amount of research that shows initiatives like Male Connect, recognise the importance of school partnerships with families. The research shows that by specifically targeting fathers, schools will see significant additional benefits for the children and for the school as a whole and The Connection between father’s and their children inevitably becomes stronger.
Again, I thank you for your participation and sincerely hope that we continue making our students flourish through healthy connections.
