There is currently an epidemic of anxiety affecting children of all ages.  Anxiety can take many forms including obsessions, compulsions, phobias, panic, sleep issues, physical illnesses, as well as a host of perplexing behaviours such as seeking attention and avoiding situations.

 

Today’s world can create many challenges for children with school pressures, peer interactions, family dynamics, negative self-image, perfectionism, and many other stressors that can impede a child’s ability to play, learn and grow.

 

Whether it’s the natural, episodic worries of childhood, or more profound and crippling versions of anxiety, Patti Drobot will help make sense of the roots of anxiety using Dr. Gordon Neufeld’s approach. Through stories, examples, and theory, Patti will suggest ways in which parents can help support their children to find psychological and emotional rest in their world.

 

This workshop is appropriate for parents of children of all age.

SAFETY APPEAL 

 

Parents are again reminded to take extra care in helping to prevent accidents when dropping off or picking up children.  Please avoid creating traffic congestion on the Turner and Slocan side of the school.  Parents are asked to please park further away from the immediate school area and take time to walk their children to the school.  PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF in the drive-ways or park in the adjacent ally. Please respect the neighbours! Furthermore, morning supervision of the playground begins at 8:15 a.m.  Children are therefore not to be left alone by parents before this time.  When children are coming to school for early morning instruction or club and sports activity, it is the responsibility of parents to make sure children have entered the building area in which they are expected to be located. Please ensure the supervisors are present before dropping off students in a particular area. Children are always welcome to attend the 8 am Mass if they arrive earlier.

 

DROP-OFF SAFETY

 

  • Please whenever possible DO NOT have children cross the street or please DO NOT drive the wrong-way or back up into the drop-off zone.
  • If you are going East, use Pender and DO NOT enter the Gym area.  This will allow students safe entry into the school yard from sidewalk and walkways.  Keeping the drop-off clockwise around the church and school ensures cars and children don’t criss-cross traffic.
  • Drop off stops are only for a few minutes. Please DO NOT leave your car in the Drop off Zone. Supervisors can help your children into the lot and school.
  • If you wish to wait with your child until they have entered the building, please park farther away and not in the Drop off Zone.
