Dr Michael Carr-Gregg to return
“Mental health is a priority. Happiness is an essential. Self-care is a necessity.”
These are the words from Dr Michael Carr-Gregg who is one of Australia’s highest-profile psychologists and leading parenting experts.
Our College is lucky to see the return of Dr Carr-Gregg this year to provide parents and carers with answers on how to be the parent in their relationship with their child as well as raise happy and resilient children.
College Principal Luke Thomson said he has heard Dr Carr-Gregg speak previously and knows the value of his presentations as both an educator and as a parent himself.
“Dr Carr-Gregg provides the tools to help you navigate the complex role of parenthood, which we all know has no road map,” he said.
“At St Catherine’s Catholic College we place high importance on partnering with parents in the education and development of their children and firmly believe that any support we can provide families is a positive investment in our students’ future.”
The College’s Wellbeing Officer Kellie Telford said even if parents only take away one tip from the night it is one step in the right direction to helping you as a parent and person, and then those around you as a result.
“It is my aim to help support our students, staff and school community to thrive and enhance their own wellbeing so this is one way that we can do this as individuals, parents and the Whitsundays Community,” she said.
Entry is free to the information session that will be held in our Tom Gard Centre on our Primary Campus in Proserpine, with food and drink also available for purchase.
Doors open at 5.30pm for a 6.30pm start.
Dr Carr-Gregg is also a regular on Channel 7’s Sunrise, or you might have read one of his 12 books, or heard him on The Morning Program with 3AW’s Neil Mitchell.
Dr Carr-Gregg will also have some of his books available for purchase at the event.
To register for the event, please call our Primary Campus on (07) 4945 1414 or email email@example.com.
