Parenting is a full time job, and ongoing professional development is essential. Tangara-Redfield Infants offers parents many opportunities to grow in the qualities of mind and character that they wish their children to acquire.
Seminars, faith enrichment and spiritual activities help parents develop a deeper understanding of themselves, their children and their responsibilities as first educators.
The School collaborates with Family Enrichment Australia to present parents with a range of courses covering the full spectrum of childhood: First Steps, the Middle Years, Facing the Challenges of the Teen Years. These are opportunities to share ideas with other parents and learn from their experience; improve problem solving skills; balance freedom and authority; and build a closer relationship with your child. There are also Marriage Enrichment Weekends where couples can take a deeper look at their married life and how it can be improved.
Parents also have the opportunity to develop their personal relationship with God. Monthly Recollections for women, including guided prayer, are conducted at Tangara on the second Tuesday of each month from 10.15am-12.10pm or 7.30pm-9.15pm.
Recollections for men are conducted at Redfield College on the second Wednesday or Thursday of each month from 7.30pm-9.15pm.
There are also annual spiritual Retreats conducted by our Chaplains at Tangara and Redfield.
