Inigo Parent Talks

We are now coming up to the Second Module (Ignatian Values) at 9am next Wednesday 5 March. As stated below if you miss a Module there is no problem because each Module has different Content. Some Parents who missed Module 1 are coming to Module 2. You are always most welcome. Please continue to send your RSVP for each Module.

The Ignatian Induction Program has been conducted over the last four years to most John XXIII Staff (with high approval evaluations) and last year was opened up to Parents. The Program consists of 6 independent content Modules with a Certificate of attendance issued to those who have completed all 6 Modules. The Staff did their Modules in groups of 20-30 over 2 full days. Parents of course needed a more flexible arrangement. Wednesdays with time slot given above, of weeks 3,5 and 7 in Term 2 and Wednesday weeks 4, 6 and 8 in Term 3. Because the Modules are independent you are able to do a Module even though missing previous Modules. Those who miss some Modules this Year can catch up next year. The idea of the Modules is to provide Staff and Parents with the basic essence of the ethos of John XXIII. The College is already a great School and with this unity it can become even greater. So our wonderful Parent Leaders (who attended the Program last year) and yours truly the Presenter EXHORT YOU to come on board next Wed morning in Gonzaga Barry Lecture Theatre.

PS I would appreciate an RSVP by sending your name to Murray 93830444 or email graham.murray@johnxxiii.edu.au.
