On Monday July 25th, MADALAH were also excited to host a networking afternoon for our tertiary scholars, followed by a professional development session for our mentors, many of whom are also in receipt of a tertiary scholarship!
It was amazing to catch up with each of our tertiary scholars and yarn about their first semester and how we could support them further with their well-being and university studies. The afternoon consisted of get-to-know-you activities and a collaborative session presented by Janelle Campbell-Cook and MADALAH staff about social and emotional well-being, strategies for balancing study commitments, how to set goals, and engaging in a healthy lifestyle. The session ended with networking over afternoon tea, which provided our tertiary scholars with an opportunity to further interact and establish meaningful connections and relationships that they can rely on for the remainder of their tertiary journey.
The mentor PD was a 2-hour intensive workshop that explored the importance of MADALAH’s purpose, our code of conduct, the creation of session content, mentoring outcomes and reflection.
MADALAH would like to thank all who attended and Janelle Campbell-Cook for facilitating the sessions, it was a fantastic turnout and we cannot wait to host the next one!
