Series of talks on child development

PENINSULA International School Australia is holding a series of free monthly talks throughout 2019 on a variety of topics that support and help parents in the educational development and parenting of children.

The talks are conducted by early childhood and education experts in the industry.

The first talk on “Healthy Communication with Your Children” by Dr Brendan J. Gomez was held recently with 30 parents.

Peninsula International School Australia and its partner, Peninsula Grammar in Australia, recognise that both parents and teachers play an important role in children’s learning, development and wellbeing, and that children generally do better when there are positive connections between the different spaces they learn in. 

“A key aspect of parental engagement involves family-school partnerships.

“This includes connecting what children are learning at school with how they learn at home, helping families to respond early to their learning challenges and extending their learning around the things they are passionate about,” said founding principal Clive Rogers.

The talks were organised in collaboration with SEGi University and Colleges.

Peninsula International School Australia is a collaboration between the HCK Group and Peninsula Grammar, located in Melbourne, Australia. It offers the Victorian Curriculum for children aged six to 18.

The Victorian Curriculum is known for its holistic learning and seeks to nurture students based on their capabilities and disposition, rather than age. It culminates in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), a tertiary admission requirement widely accepted by universities in Australia, the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States and Malaysia, among others.
