20170313 P and F Forum

On Monday 13 March the P&F will be holding a Parent Seminar on Mental Health.

The team from Headspace will be running our next Forum to provide a valuable opportunity for all parents to gain insights into the nature of various mental health issues. It can often be hard as a parent to know the difference between normal behaviour, such as occasional moodiness and irritability, and an emerging mental health problem. This seminar is designed to assist parents in a very informative and practical sense.

To reserve your seat to the Understanding Mental Health Parent Seminar please RSVP below.

20180515 Guest Speaker Peggy Orenstein

Mount St Benedict College through its partnership with Alliance of Girls Schools Australasia is hosting an evening forum for parents and educators with US visiting author, internationally-renowned journalist and TED speaker Peggy Orenstein titled "From Princesses to Pop-Tarts: What the New Culture of Girlhood Means for Girls and the Grown-Ups Who Care About Them".

Date: Tuesday 15 May
Time: 7.00pm
Venue: Hildegard Theatre, Mount St Benedict College, 449c Pennant Hills Road PENNANT HILLS Parking: Limited on-site parking is available.
Off-site parking is recommended in surrounding streets. See attached map for suggested street parking locations. The College is fortunate to have access to a pedestrian bridge over Pennant Hills Road which makes accessing the College much easier at the Beecroft Road / Pennant Hills Road intersection.

Peggy Orenstein is the New York Times bestselling author of Girls and Sex, Cinderella Ate My Daughter, Waiting for Daisy, Flux, and Schoolgirls. A contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine, she has been published in USA Today, Parenting, Salon, the New Yorker, and other publications, and has contributed commentary to National Public Radio's All Things Considered.

From Princesses to Pop-Tarts: What the New Culture of Girlhood Means for Girls and the Grown-Ups Who Care About Them

Concerns about the media messages urging the premature sexualisation of girls, and the attendant risks, used to focus on twelve or thirteen-year-olds. No more. The new pink and pretty "girlie-girl" culture encourages girls from infancy onward to believe that how they look matters more than who they are. Orenstein discusses the trajectory of girls' culture from toddler through "tween": even as new educational and professional opportunities appear before today's girls, so does a path equating identity with image, self-expression with appearance, pleasure with pleasing, and sexuality with sexualisation. Orenstein illuminates the potential negative impact of the new girlie-girl culture, but argues persuasively that with awareness and recognition, parents and advocates can effectively counterbalance its influence.
