Our Year 10 Caring for Children students welcomed a very cute visitor last week, four-month-old Callie.
Callie and her mother, Monique Blackman, joined the class to discuss a range of topics, including infant development, feeding, co-sleeping and the demands of motherhood, alongside our nurse and Callie’s grandmother, Leonie Wilson.
Callie was bathed in class, with students learning about the importance of water safety.
Home Economics teacher Julie Coyle said incursions with infants always proved a popular treat.
“Some of our students do not have young children in their lives, and it is always delightful to see them react to babies,” she said.
“Callie’s visit reminds them of the importance of their studies, especially for students who want to go on to work with children or babies.”
