It's been a busy 6months here at Talking Realities with lots I things
happening! We've had swimming, training, school presentations, excursions and TAFE sign ups!

Our Young Parents have now completed the Talking Realities Training. We have 5 new graduate and Iā€™m looking forward to seeing you present at schools. Your hard work and motivation is inspiring, not only did you graduate from this course; half of you are already enrolled into TAFE to complete your studies, WELL DONE!

Now it's time to make way for another group of young parents. I'm excited to be able to provide a safe and flexible environment where young parents can enjoy learning. Our new training semester starts on Wednesday, 16th July 2014 and applications are now closed.

Since our last update we have had lots of school presentations. Our presenters are amazing and help teach students about the realities of young parenting in a fun and interactive way. The use of personal stories and examples are always funny and helps students become aware of young parenting. Our feedback has been amazing with lots of students saying they learnt "heaps" in our presentations. We have been to 16 schools with over 450 attendees ā€“ great work girls!

Now that its winter swimming is off but we have some exciting and interesting seminars coming up such as: financial management & budgeting, nutrition, toddler behaviour and resume writing/job interview skills. The new swimming semester is due to start the first Monday in term 4 (October 2014). We are currently taking school bookings for terms 3 & 4 2014. If you would like to book a Talking Realities Presentation for your school please contact Rebeccah: rebeccah.roberts@sswahs.nsw.gov.au

Talking Realities will be closed for a few weeks in September due to annual leave ā€“ the dates are from Thursday 18th September ā€“ Wednesday 15th October 2014. Training will continue during this time with external trainers taking over. For any enquiries during this time please contact reception (02) 9794 2352.
