Parenting Workshop

On January 14, Roden parent council hosted its first parenting workshop of the year.

More than 30 parents came out to take part in a workshop called Disciplining, With Love, led by community workers Joanne Gallagher and Farzana Yusuf from the East End Community Health Centre. Gallagher and Yusuf lead two workshops; one in English, another in Urdu/Hindi for parents from our South Asian community.

Parents brought important questions to the discussion: how to manage sibling rivalry, dinner time and the effectiveness of giving children consequences.

Due to the success of our January workshop, Roden parent council is happy to offer you a second workshop on March 4, called Raising Sexually Health Children.

If you have ideas for future workshops you’d like to see offered at Roden, send an email to secretary@roden.ca.

Hope to see you in March!

Sarah Rogers, parenting workshop coordinator

Feb 10th – 100th day of school

To mark the 100th day of school, the students in Ms. Robichaud’s Grade 1/2 class were assigned a challenge: complete ten different activities, all based on the number 100, before the end of the day.

The activities included weighing 100 items of different objects to see which weighed more. For another activity, they counted 100 Fruit Loops and strung them onto a necklace. They also had to successfully build a boat that held 100 objects without sinking. They made colourful “100th Day” hats to celebrate the occasion!
