Real Schools Parent Information Evening

Wed 12 May 6:00pm - 7:00pm

How do schools and parents get on the same page about the important stuff? 

How do we build a partnership around building fantastic young people for today and tomorrow? 

How can our teachers AND parents use the same strategies to manage behaviour, encourage responsibility and improve the chances of success? 

They seem like outrageously big questions, but they do have answers. Unfortunately, too often parents and schools are not on the same page when it comes to answering them. 

Bishop Druitt College wants to do something about that, and has commenced a partnership with Real Schools to make it happen. But we can't do it alone. We need you to know everything involved, and to have your say. 


That's why we need you at this critical event. During the session we will: 

  • Tell you all about the Restorative Practices Partnership that the school is embarking on 
  • Ask for your input 
  • Provide you with strategies to use immediately in your parenting - and they're the same strategies your teachers are using now 
  • Learn how to respond, rather than react, to your child's behaviour 
  • Share the best ways to build a meaningful partnership with your school.
