Afternoon Tea for Positive Partners

RESC Positive Parents 1Oct2018 2An afternoon tea is made more special when people come together for a purpose. And so it was that on Tuesday 30th October parents and carers of students attending Riverside ESC came together at the school’s invitation to meet and share something of their experiences.

This initiative arose from the Positive Partnerships project; the notion of strength in families and communities is what Positive Partnerships is all about. Riverside ESC had the pleasure of enabling parents and carers to come together in a safe environment, to make contact with each other and to form a supporting network of friends with their child’s school as the valued point of connection.

RESC Positive Parents 1Oct2018 1This first gathering was a great success. The afternoon tea was enjoyed by more than 20 parents, carers and family members. Staff of Riverside ESC popped their heads in to say a quick hello. It was wonderful to see such a great turn out and the feedback was extremely positive.

Organising teacher Alicia Hart says the event will be held twice a year, starting in 2019. Hopefully next year we will see even more of our wonderful families enjoying a cup of coffee, cake and chat together.

Positive Partnerships is a national project, funded by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training through the Helping Children with Autism package. It is delivered by Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect), with a goal to improve the educational outcomes of school-aged students on the autism spectrum.
