Parenting Talk on Australian Family Law

19 April 2018 –  A parenting talk was organised for parents who were new to Australia to give them an insight into how the legal system in Australia works. Parents gained a deeper understanding on their responsibilities to their children, laws concerning their children as well as family laws and policies at work in Australia.

The session also covered the following topics:

  • An overview of the legal system in Australia
  • Information on Australian family law
  • Rights and responsibility as a parent
  • Laws relating to children

Handouts were provided to the participants in different languages to help parents understand better.  Parents who attended the talk found the session useful since it provided them with information about their rights, being responsible parents. This will help them carry out their duties well.

Surviving the Ocean of Depression

22 February 2018 – Surviving the Ocean of Depression was an interesting program where participants aged between 35 to 70,  took part in sharing their experiences that lead them to depression and ways they adapt to deal with them. It was heartening to note that most felt happy after sharing their stories since they hardly get such opportunities to express their feelings or share it with anyone. For some, it is an ongoing battle, nevertheless, they put on a brave face.

MWASA would like to thank David Denborough, community worker, teacher and writer/editor for Dulwich Centre, for taking the time to faciliate the session. His involvment enabled the participants to form a support network and draw lessons and motivation from each other.
