Lively District Secondary School hosts workshop for parents on May 14th

Lively District Secondary School will host interactive workshops for parents/guardians on Tuesday, May 14, 2019. The workshops will take place from 6 pm to 8:30 pm in the school’s second floor library.

The School Council is presenting the workshops as part of a proactive approach to help parents/guardians support their children’s academic and social well-being during the transition to secondary school.

Guest speaker, Lynne Dupuis of LMD Solutions, will provide participants with strategies and tools that focus on concepts for sustainable change, knowledge sharing and goal setting. Parents/guardians will engage in an interactive exercise to ensure tasks are completed on time, and with everyone on board.

Tammy Ashe, of BDO Canada Limited, will focus on financial challenges and debt solutions for parents with teenagers, particularly for those financing post-secondary education. Participants will also learn tips and tricks to set appropriate budgets, and to help teach their children to take control of their financial future.

Greater Sudbury Police will provide information parents/guardians should know.

“These workshops are part of our school’s ongoing efforts to support our students and parents/guardians,” says Lively District Secondary School Principal Leslie Mantle. “I would like to commend our School Council for presenting this event and thank the Ministry of Education for supporting this event. Everyone is welcome to attend.”

The workshops are being presented by the School Council with funding provided by the Ministry of Education Parent and Community Engagement Office.
