To my great shame... it took nearly 4 1/2 years to partner with a school, and facilitate a Parent Night. Last November 15, I facilitated our very first Parent Night at a school in Sydney. We had over 70 people come... including just a handful of Mothers. I was thrilled... nearly 70 men came to hear me present on the impact of a father's presence. The feedback on the night, and the subsequent weeks that followed... to this very day in fact... was so incredibly encouraging. I had men phoning me the next morning to know if I was going to be presenting something similar anywhere else in Sydney in the evenings that followed... because they had wished their wives could have been there with them the night before.
Now it's Melbourne's turn! This time we are partnering with Waverley Christian College, and this time, I have ensured that all Mums are also very welcome to attend... in fact encouraged to attend. So if you live in Melbourne, then we'd love to see you there... and if you don't, but know someone who does... then please be sure to help us get the word out about this. A summary of the details follow... along with some graphics of the flyer.
