I was so pleased to see the number of parents who were able to join us for our October Coffee & Chat. The benefits of these sessions are many but really, it’s about connecting with each other. There are many different ways in which parents and school can work together. Our coffee & chat times mainly focus on the 4 pillars below:
- supporting the learning and development of our students
- sharing information about topics that matter to parents
- contributing, connecting and building community
- learning together – aligning our language between home and school
Emi Garzitto, our area counsellor joined us and provided an overview of anxiety and the role we play as adults in creating environments that help children practice resilience strategies. This session provided practical ideas for both adults and children in developing strategies that manage anxiety. Part II of this session will be held in November. (date TBA) I’ve attached the handout from this session to our website.
Join us for PAC meetings, Coffee & Chats, or send us an email to let us know what you’d like to “coffee & chat about.”
