Melinda to return this week for Parent Info Night and student sessions

Galen Catholic College, together with NESAY, School Focus Youth Service (SFYS) are pleased to be able to offer our Parents and Guardians an evening with world leading expert, Melinda Tankard Reist.

Melinda has only just returned from a global summit in the USA on child exploitation, and will be in Wangaratta this week to work with some of our students, staff and families on Wednesday April 18th 2018 at 7pm.  

We understand that little notice has been provided for our families, but given the positive feedback we received from students and parents when Melinda visited at the end of last year (November 2017), it was too good an opportunity to pass up. If you attended last year, please come again, as her parent/guardian session will provide additional and updated information.

This is a parent/guardian information session you will not want to miss!

Date: Wednesday 18th April

Time: 7pm start

Location: Galen Catholic College Auditorium

RSVP: Kate Meehan ( ) by Tuesday 17th April

Feel free to bring along another parent or future Galen parent to this wonderful parent opportunity.

Melinda will also be working with our year 8 students, in two separate sessions, one with the boys and the other with the girls.  We are also hoping to offer a session with some of year 9 students (depending on Melinda’s travel arrangements).

We look forward to welcoming as many Galen parents/guardians as possible to this very worthwhile information session.
