Event description

Northside Forum - Services and Schools supporting primary school aged children and their families. 

This free event is being held in Belconnen for the first time as part of the partnership that A Village for Every Child has with Southside Initiative and the Belconnen Network Coordinator, CRCS. As part of the forum series, speakers will present the work they are doing to support children and families in the primary school years. We are pleased to be able to offer a southside and northside option for schools, services and ECECs.

This forum will explore the different ways schools can and do support children and families, using real life examples from Charles Condor Primary School and Evatt Primary School. We will also reflect upon the 2021 AEDC data and what this means for children living in both regions, as well as hear from Kinnections and the ACT Education Directorate on the work they are doing to support primary school aged children.

This will be an excellent opportunity to network and to share ideas and experiences to support the work you already do in your school toward improving positive life outcomes for students and their families.

The Event will feature an expert panel of speakers including:

    • Tracy Power - Australian Early Development Census. A snapshot on what the 2021 AEDC data tells us about children living in the southside suburbs and ways we can support positive change.
    • Aimee Hunter - ACT Education Directorate. Supporting primary school children and families to access quality learning experiences and support.
    • Josh Vaughan - Kinnections. Sharing a new and innovative way to support schools toward better gauging and understanding each child's wellbeing.
    • Amanda More - Charles Conder Primary School. Reflecting on their school's approach and culture to better support children and families in the area.
    • Jamal See - Evatt Primary School. An update and the story behind the "Evatt Collective".

The forum is ideal for:

    • Youth support workers
    • Social Workers
    • Community and family coordinators
    • Executive teachers
    • OSHC Managers/directors
    • Principles
