University Prep for Parents
As much as it is important for our graduates to be well-prepared for the next phase of their lives, whether that be post-secondary study or other endeavours, it is also critical for parents to also better understand what this change will bring.
Three parents of Mulgrave graduates (Alida Ali, Adriana Li, and Tori Sinclair) have kindly offered their time, insight and advice for a panel-style discussion. All participants will be invited to engage in the conversation and to share their thoughts and questions.
The following sessions are open to all Mulgrave parents, but will be most relevant for parents of Grade 11 and 12 students.
Wednesday, January 29th, 5:00-6:00pm: Preparing as Parents
Parents will learn more about the areas of their lives that will be most impacted by their child leaving home.
Monday, March 2nd, 5:00-6:00pm: Logistical Preparations
There are a number of administrative and practical tasks that should be completed prior to your child leaving home. Learn more about documentation and key to-dos in this session.
Monday, April 27th, 5:00-6:00pm: Supporting Your Child's Independence
(Note the change of date, originally scheduled for April 20th)
As parents, we need to help set our children up for success...and then set them free! Learn more about key areas for student independence: self care, adapting to a new environment, and important skills to be acquired.
All sessions will take place at Mulgrave School in the Senior School Academic Centre.
