We welcomed Father John from Mai Tam House of Hope to speak to our Year 9 students in the final ‘Understanding Others’ series of lessons. Mai Tam House of Hope is a home and centre for HIV/AIDS positive children and provides shelter, medicine, medical care and education for its residents. I was very proud of the Year 9s who showed great respect throughout the talk and posed intelligent and mature questions to Father John at the end. I look forward to receiving some fabulous entries to our poster competition in collaboration with Family Medical Practice (closing date 20 January 2020) which focuses on reducing the stigma and discrimination encountered by HIV/AIDs positive people.
I hope you have had an opportunity to discuss the Wellbeing curriculum with your son or daughter this term and have gained a greater understanding of the work they are doing during lessons and in Tutor Time. I aim to introduce parental workshops in Term 2 and look forward to seeing many of you at those. Should you have any feedback, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I wish everyone a restful and peaceful holiday and look forward to speaking to you again in 2020.
Mr Alexander, Head of Middle Secondary (Pastoral & Wellbeing)
