We are wishing a 'Great Start to School' for all the students starting school or continuing into a new grade in 2022!Go Goldfields Central Victoria joined MDHS - Maryborough District Health Service in wishing 2022 Preps at some of the Kinders across the Shire all the best for their start at school next year with a water bottle for each student in the thoughtful goody-bags delivered by MDHS this past week. The Go Goldfields Every Child Every Chance (ECEC) initiative prioritises a ‘Great Start to School’ for children and their families. School is fun! And such an important piece of the puzzle of living a great life. We encourage children and families to seek out the many supports available via their school community, or the wider community, if they are finding this new world of early starts, lunch boxes, uniforms, paperwork and homework a little daunting. Together, we can continue to create a positive future for the kids of our Shire!Pictured here: Talia Martin (California Gully Kindergarten)gogoldfields.org/ ... See MoreSee Less

LEADING IN INNOVATIVE SOCIAL CHANGE - We are bringing the Empowering Parents, Empowering Communities (EPEC) initiative to the Central Goldfields Shire!Developed and tested by the UK Centre for Parent and Child Support, EPEC encompasses the best of current theoretical and practical knowledge and provides an alternative model to practitioner-led parenting interventions. Go Goldfields will become the next Australian ECEP site in partnership with the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI).This 'peer-to-peer' program brings practitioners and parents together as partners in a culture of shared practice. The dynamic of local parents working within the system, alongside practitioners, spans the boundary between services and families disengaged from the system.We are now seeking potential Practitioner Facilitators!Please join us for morning tea at GG HQ to find out more about ‘Empowering Parents, Empowering Communities’ from the EPEC families and facilitators who will be joining us via video link from Tasmania at 9.30am on Thursday 24th November 2021.For EOI registrations, our newly developed info booklet and more information please visit: gogoldfields.org/epec-empowering-parents-empowering-communities/#peertopeer #parentingsupport #centralgoldfields #ececvic #gogoldfields #collectiveimpact ...
