Our first one will be on Monday 21 May 2012, 7.30 pm in the staff room where Senior Constable Jacqie Brown from the North Shore Police will talk to us about in general how to detect that your daughter has any problems in regards, to drugs, bullying etc and strategies that can be put into place.

Guest Speaker:

Ms Roz Mexted:

Ms Mexted gave a presentation on the challenges and changes that school face in the 21st Century. She introduced her vision for the school and how to implement those challenges and changes into the curriculum and preparing our girls for the world “outside”.

The talk was very informative and an eye opener what is required of schools today.
