Families and Community Evening

Thank you to all our wonderful families who continue to support our students to be successful at Melrose High School. Teachers at Melrose genuinely appreciate the partnership we have with parents and carers, and we know how important it is for you to be involved in your child’s learning.

To continue building a positive partnership with families at Melrose, our team has organised a Families and Community Evening on Monday 17 September from 4.30-6.30pm  in the MHS Library with a presentation from Headspace. The evening is focused on mental health and connecting our families with both the Melrose team and local community services. Parents and carers are welcome to drop in at any time. 

4.30pm – Melrose Student Services Team  - come and meet the Year Coordinators, Youth Support Worker, School Psychologist, Indigenous Education Officer and Executive Team. 
5.30pm – Presentation from Headspace on student mental health. 
5:50pm – Community stalls for parents to connect with local support organisations including: Menslink, Woden Community Centre, PCYC, Gugan Gulwan, OneLink, Carers ACT, YMCA, Smith Family etc.
6:30pm – Evening concludes. 

We hope that this evening will help families to engage with these services. Remember that if you need support with your child, you are always welcome to contact their Year Coordinator. Additionally, I encourage you to sign up to attend our Parent/Teacher Night on Thursday.

If you are interested in attending, please email MelroseHS.Events@ed.act.edu.au  to help with catering; however, there is no need to RSVP.
