A FREE workshop in Warrnambool this week will teach parents how to help their children achieve at school.
The session, called Learning How to Learn: Supporting Your Kids to Achieve, has been organised by the Deakin Engagement and Access Program (DEAP) in conjunction with Brauer College, Warrnambool College and Terang College and supported by Barwon Adolescent Task Force (BATForce).
It will be presented by Leigh Bartlett from BATForce, who has a background in education, disability, local government and well-being.
The parent engagement workshop at Deakin University Warrnambool City Centre from 7pm-9pm on Thursday will provide strategies for parents and carers of children in years 5 to 8 to support their young people in education.
Children are also encouraged to attend.
The workshop addresses issues like balancing technology and play, parents’ role in keeping their child interested in school, helping a child find the best educational pathway, who to call when things go wrong and how to celebrate when things go right.
