The St Stephen’s School Fathering Project Schools’ Group, Dinkum Dads, commenced in 2013.

We aim to provide opportunities for fathers & father figures to organise great activities for dads and their kids but also dads only events where fathers & father figures can socialise, network support, learn and share experiences with each other.

We have an organising committee with 20 members and is lead by Stuart Wesley. The Dinkum Dads have conducted the following successful events.

  1. Meeting once a month for a meal, a talk and some discussion around some aspect of parenting.
  2. Dads and Lads – Year five and six Dads get together with their sons once per term for games, discussion and food. An overnight camp at the school’s Nanga property is being organised.

For more information on how to join the group or future activities please contact Stuart Wesley.
