Dear Members of the Padua College community

Child Safety Week

Next week we will celebrate Child Safety Week. At Padua College, we place the utmost importance on the safety and wellbeing of our young people and as part of this ongoing commitment, staff have recently undertaken SAFEMinds (Schools and Families Enhancing Minds) training. Next week there will be a focus for all staff on Child Safety and early in Term 4 we will be offering SAFEMinds training session for parents.

Padua Parents’ Group Meeting

On Tuesday 19 September I will be meeting with the Parents’ Group Meeting for a ‘Meet the Principal’ evening. I am looking forward to this opportunity to meet with parents to talk through any issues they wish to discuss and to hear any ideas they may have for the future. I encourage parents to attend this evening at the Tyabb Campus and I look forward to seeing you there.
