Parents in Touch
In 2004, the model of P&F meetings to engage parents in the life of the school was changed and 'Parents in Touch' was born. The aim of Parents in Touch is to build a stronger partnership between the school and home by having input from people outside of MCR who are renowned in their field.
These special parent evenings cover a range of issues that impact on boys' education. Special guest speakers are invited to present on the topic of their expertise. Typically, 70 - 90 parents and friends of the College are in attendance. The College Executive are present at every Parents in Touch evening, and on occasion are the guest speakers.
Parents in Touch topics among others have included:
- Getting the best out boys
- Growing boys into fine young men
- Grief Loss and Change
- Understanding the HSC
- Alcohol, Drugs & other community forums
Parents in Touch evenings are held once per term at the College, in Greenstead Hall.
