Tomorrow Man and Woman - 6 May

Tomorrow Man Woman

Date: Monday 6 May 2019 (changed from 1 May)

Time: 6pm - 8pm

Place: Chatswood High School Learning Space

Following the success of Tomorrow Man workshops at CHS in 2018, the CHS P&C is proud to host more workshops for Year 10 students this year, plus an evening parent workshop. We are also excited to announce that CHS will be one of the first schools in Australia to host the newly launched Tomorrow Woman program.

Tomorrow Man & Tomorrow Woman are about reinventing masculinity and femininity and challenging the narrow rules around what it means to be a man or a woman today. The program aims to disrupt outdated gender stereotypes, strengthen emotional muscle and reinvent a modern more flexible alternative for teens. It is about encouraging healthy traits that strengthen resilience and keep more of our young people alive today and tomorrow.

This workshop is your chance to understand the work done by the Tomorrow team. Come along and get ready to:

  • Explore the impact stereotypes have on us and our boys and girls
  • Have deeper conversations with your teenager
  • Better understand the pressures of being a teenager and
  • Better support your teenager.

The event is open to all CHS parents and parents from nearby schools. Parents only at the evening workshop – no students.

Please RSVP by May 3 to

Year 12 Final Farewell Parent Network Dinner - Friday 24 August

Friday 24 August 2018 at 6.30pm at the Chelsea Hotel, 14 Railway Street, Chatswood

After 6 years at CHS, this will be our last parent network dinner for parents and students of Class 2018.

I still can recall fondly of our very first social parent network evening at Jo Alani’s house and since then we all have seen familiar faces at each function and also met new ones along the way.

I hope you can make the effort as it will be our very last parent network social and remember to bring along your year 12 student so they can too mingle with their peers as it is after HSC trials !!

Please RSVP by Monday 20 August 2018 to Joanne Chew at .
