Parent Workshops

We have lots of informative and exciting events taking place at Dysart this term, details of which are listed below!

 

Booking your place needs to be done through Eventbrite so that we are able to manage attendance. Places will be limited, to ensure we are able to offer appropriate time and resources to those attending so you get the most from the workshops. You will only be able to attend the workshop if you have booked a place online. Once your booking has been made, an email confirmation will be sent to you and to Sue Bashford at the school. The links to book these events will be sent home via InTouch and will also be listed on this page. If you encounter any problems booking a course, please contact Sue Bashford at the school on 020-8412-2600 and she will help you with the booking.
