Lake Heights has recently connected with a not for profit organisation called, ‘The Fathering Project’, aiming to inspire and equip fathers and father figures to engage with their children.
To launch this initiative, we’re holding a whole school paper plane making afternoon on Thursday 14 February from 1:35. We will have a variety of materials and spaces set up in each class for everyone; all you need to do is come along and have fun with your children for 45 minutes.
Whilst the focus is on positive fathering, it would be amazing to get as many parents (fathers, mothers, grandparents, uncles, aunties or father figures) here as possible. There is no such thing as a “normal” family, so whilst we are actively trying to get dads involved, of course anyone from your family is welcome to come and join in.
This is a class based activity and all children will be able to take part regardless of who might or might not be able to come. Future activities are planned for weekends and out of school hours to cater for the wide range of family work schedules.
If you are unable to make this occasion, pencil in our next event on Sunday 19 May at 1PM.
