Parent opportunities

Hello families,

A couple quick parent information items

  • Anxiety workshop for parents at Queneesh on Oct 9.  Poster attached and last Sept Counsellor's corner attached too which talks about childhood worries in September.  This presentation by Julie-Anne Richards on Oct. 9th from 6 to 8 pm and takes place at the Queneesh school gym.  It is tailored for parents, caregivers and educators supporting children ages 5 to 13 experiencing stress and anxiety.  If you could please send out a quick blurb (possibly a cut and paste of the above) to your school communities I would appreciated it.  Registration is required and childminding is available.
