This committee organises lectures about a specific subject of general interest to parents, teachers and staff, presented by an expert from within or outside our school community. Talks give the opportunity to share and learn and also to meet with other parents and teachers in an informal setting. E.g. ‘Bullying’, ‘Children and the Internet’, ‘The Importance of Sleep’ and ‘Alcohol and other Drugs’, have been some of the presentations in the past. Generally, these presentations are held once a month on each site.
The objective of the Talks Committee at Barra for 2016 is to revitalize this important forum and to invite a range of speakers on topics of interest to come to talk to parents.
