“The Gee-Dads are back!”
Hello!I have some great news.The Gee-Dads are back at Caralee Community School in 2019…As part of The Fathering Project, this programme has been very successful in the past.Grant White (Pre-Primary Dad), Peter Lochore (Year 1 Dad) and myself (Pre-Primary Dad) have agreed to co-ordinate Gee-Dads activities in the future.This means that we will be providing some great opportunities for Dads to spend quality time doing FUN stuff with their children. It also offers great opportunities for dads to meet other dads & kids from other years at the Caralee Community School.As part of being able to communicate easily with the Gee-Dads, we have also set up a Whatsapp group called “Gee-Dads”. So if you are wanting to be kept up-to-date with Gee-Dads events, please indicate in an email to me whether you are happy to be added to this group. We will probably use this group as the main way of communicating with the Gee-Dads in future.If you have any questions regarding the Gee-Dads, please feel free to email me.Cheers,
Drayton Morley firstname.lastname@example.org

In 2017, our Champion Dads of Caralee formed a group (renamed the "Gee Dads"), and commenced a program of activities with fellow male parents and father figures within our school.More information regarding the program, how it can help you, your child, our school and the wider community will appear here regularly.
