PAC guest speaker to address anxiety

PAC guest speaker to address anxiety

The Comox Valley District Parent Advisory Council is very excited to once again have Barbara Colwell B.ED., M.ED come to speak to the parents and guardians of SD71.

In the spring of 2013, Colwell’s session on anxiety drew in over 220 parents and guardians. Her latest session will be on Monday, March 23 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Valley View Elementary gym.

Anxiety and stress continue to overwhelm so many people, including children, and it is holding individuals and families hostage.

Colwell is going to offer parents some strategies to help combat the negative impact that too much stress in our lives has on our children. Colwell has 35 years experience as a school counsellor, teacher and motivational coach.

This event is free but a donation of a food item for the local food bank is appreciated.

There will not be any childcare available.
