Focus on Fathers: A collection of CD-based resources to help schools organise a dads’ breakfast and get dads involved in the school community.
John Andriunas, Dave Turnidge & Victoria Clay
The ‘dads’ breakfast’ has become an almost obligatory part of school life, but engaging dads is about more than just sizzling a few sausages; in fact, that’s the easy part.
The Focus on Fathers CD brings together all the resources, knowledge and experience accumulated by the Fathers in Communities workers during their work in schools around Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. There’s information on the hands-on practicalities of organising a dads’ breakfast, pro forma documents for the invites and notices you’ll need, work sheets for homework projects and the creation of a dads’ corner in the classroom, a dads’ strengths survey form and much more.
