Parent Page



There are lots of great websites out there on parenting resources. The attached link takes you to one of the best known Australian websites based on the work of Michael Grose.

You can download some examples from the site at the following link. Please have a look and let me know if you think this type of resource published through this page would be useful for Padua parents. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.



The first meeting each term will be an ‘Engage, Consult and Advise’ gathering which will consider a variety of issues within the school. Topics will be advised closer to each date.

Another meeting will occur later in the term which will focus on building parent engagement in the school, and the opportunity for sub-groups to meet to plan upcoming events.

The final meeting for the year will be a Review of 2017, Planning for 2018, and an End of Year Thanks and Celebration.

Last Wednesday we experienced a fantastic night of cooking, and a good deal of frivolity, as parent volunteers met for the first Padua Community Cooking Night. Willing volunteers baked, boiled and stir-fried their way through a prepared menu to fill the freezer with meals for those in need in our Padua community.

Great thanks to Anne-Marie Houlihan for the organisation of the night and to Michele Fatchen for co-ordinating the food and facilities on the evening.

If you want to be involved in future cooking nights, please mail Anne-Marie with your name, email address and phone number and she will add you to the email list to be contacted. Anne-Marie's email is:

The dates for the rest of the year are: 17  May, 16 August, 1 November.

All cooking evenings begin at 7.00pm at the Mornington Campus.

Please remember, if you would like to drop me a line with any thoughts, questions or suggestions, please feel free to do so. I’d love to hear from you. Any feedback is good feedback!
