As part of our All About Girls parenting series, Mentone Girls’ Grammar is delighted to host an exclusive screening of ‘Screenagers’ at Village Cinemas Southland!
Screenagers is an award-winning documentary that began as a journey for American doctor and filmmaker, Delaney Ruston, who was struggling with how much time her children were spending on screens. It probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including the director's own, and depicts messy struggles, over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction.
We encourage you to attend this educational and fun screening, as the film explores these issues in a fun and engaging way, offering real solutions for parents.
After the screening, you are also invited to an informal chat and coffee with our School Psychologist, Lara Silkoff and our Head of Digital Technologies, Michelle Dennis to discuss the issues and practical implications from the film.
You are welcome to bring along your children (aged 9/10+) and also invite friends with school age children who may be interested in this screening.
If in the unlikely chance that we don’t reach the minimum quota of 87 tickets sold, your money will be refunded and you can join another screening by Fanforce.
Date: Wednesday 30 August
Venue: Village Cinemas Southland, VIC
Cost: $21.00 AUD Admission
"As the mother of three kids—two of them teenagers—I’ve noticed that whenever I get together with other parents, the conversation ends up turning to our kids’ screen time. We’re all worried about how much is too much. For any of you wrestling with this issue, I loved the documentary, Screenagers. It combines smart insights and practical tips for raising happy, healthy, technologically-empowered teens." — Melinda Gates
"It's a MUST SEE for anyone with kids in their lives!" — Martha Adams, Chief Creative Officer for Girl Rising
