Programs

Aboriginal

At West Heights we are proud of the Aboriginal programs that are offered to all of our students. Some examples include Girls and Boys Club offered for Intermediate students, Technology Thursdays (where students work on laptops and IPADs). There are many opportunities to participate in activities such as soap stone carving, beading, making dream catchers or Metis jigging. If your child has Aboriginal ancestry, please let the office know. We are also excited that the opportunity to learn Halq'emeylem has expanded from two to four primary classes this year.

APPLICATION

 

What is it?  

Six one-afternoon-per-week workshops on how emotions work in the brain and the body,

how emotions can be recognized and managed, and how you can help your children learn to better manage their emotions.

Why? 

Research shows that children who have caregivers (i.e. parents, daycare workers, teachers) who have knowledge about

emotional literacy and who practice and model effective emotion regulation strategies: are more empathetic and less likely

to bully, are better able to cope with stress, do better in school, and experience higher degrees of emotional and physical well-being.

When? One day per week for 6 weeks: October 12–November  16, 2:30 – 5:00 p.m.

Information meeting/registration on October 5, 2017 at 2:25 p.m. Room 134.

Bring your children. Coffee/tea/juice and snacks served.

What’s in it for me?

  • Free childcare while you are attending the workshops
  • Free dinner for you and your family after each workshop
  • Free snacks for you and your children after school (and coffee/tea for adults)
  • Become a better manager of emotions to improve well-being for your family
  • Become part of a parent support group to relieve the stresses of childrearing
  • Certificate of Achievement

Comments from parents who have already completed the workshops:

“Every parent should take this course!”

“I am a better parent and a calmer person after taking this course.”

“Because of this course, I have tackled things I didn’t think I could ever do.”

“I made a very good friend because of this course.”

“I am so much better at dealing with the stress of parenting.”
