Families Week 2019
National Families Week, held from 15 to 21 May, aims to celebrate the vital role that families play in Australian society.This year, CatholicCare invites all schools in the Diocese of Wollongong to celebrate Family Week.
Making Moments Matter, was developed by CatholicCare in collaboration with five student interns from the University of Notre Dame, Sydney Australia. Making Moments Matter is designed to provide parents and teachers with ideas, activities, and resources that encourage family connectedness in the home and school community.
Making Moments Matter is divided into three categories:
These categories provide easy access to customised prayer resources from school assemblies to meal times, activities for the classroom and the home, and creative ideas and reading for all. Making Moments Matter is designed to allow teachers and parents to pick and choose exactly what suits them. Making Moments Matter will continue to be available after Families Week, and parents and teachers are encouraged to keep interacting with the resources.
CatholicCare provides services to the whole community, supporting people to build positive relationships and connected lives. CatholicCare facilitates programs for families that both teachers and parents can access and participate in. To get involved, click on the categories listed above.
Making Moments Matter was designed collaboratively by an interdisciplinary group of student interns from the University of Notre Dame, Sydney Australia.
CatholicCare has many fundraising events throughout the year. The events are supported by volunteer committees, who work very hard to ensure the continuity of these programs which provide valuable support and services to some of our youngest and most vulnerable community members.
