Call for Adjudicators for NRP Gr. 5 Heritage Fair – Friday June. 8

Thanks for those who volunteered at the Grade 4 Heritage Fair in May. Now we are calling for adjudicators for the Grade 5 Heritage Fair, which will take place Friday June 8, from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM.  The program relies on volunteer adjudicators (judges) to evaluate the student projects.

What’s involved?  The time commitment can be the entire day (9 AM – 3 PM) or half a day (morning or afternoon).  The coordinator, Janet Morley, will provide more instructions the day of the event.

It’s not a problem if you’re a parent for one of the participating students, you just don’t evaluate your own child of course. No experience necessary, straightforward process.

If you are interested in volunteering at the NRP Heritage Fair, please contact Janet (coordinator for Vancouver Heritage Fairs) directly at: jamor@telus.net

Here is more information about the BC Heritage Fairs program: About Us

Parent Conversation Group – June 6

Parent Conversation Group is an informal, parent to parent conversation opportunity, we will have different topics to discuss at each session.

Final Parent Conversation Group: How to Talk with Kids about Drugs and Alcohol

Date/Time: Wednesday, June 6, 2018, 9:00 – 10:00 AM

Location: NRP Multipurpose Room

Special Guests: Dr. Katie Bertram, NRP parent and physician; and Art Steinmann, VSB School Age Children and Youth (SACY) Substance Use Health Promotion Initiative

Alcohol and drug use are leading causes of injury and death in young people in Canada, and drug overdoses are a public health emergency in BC. In a society where alcohol, marijuana, and other potentially harmful substances may be relatively accessible, what do parents need to know to keep kids safe? Join our guest experts for a discussion of:

  • Tips for parent-child communication to prevent unsafe substance use among kids; and
  • Facts and myths about substance use and addiction.

All parents are welcome, and we have someone that speaks your language too!

 

家长交流小组是一个非正式的,家长与家长间的交流机会,每次交流会都有不同的主题。

最后一次交流会:如何与孩子谈论毒品和酒精

时间:6月6日,周三,上午9:00-10:00,NRP Multipurpose Room

特别嘉宾:Katie Bertram博士(医生、NRP家长)以及Art Steinmann,教育局学龄儿童和青少年(SACY)物质使用健康促进计划(Substance Use Health Promotion)负责人

在加拿大,酗酒和吸毒是导致年轻人受伤和死亡的主要原因,而吸毒过量是BC省的公共卫生的紧急问题。在一个可能相对容易获得酒精、大麻和其他潜在有害物质的社会里,父母们需要知道什么才能保证孩子的安全?请与我们的客座专家一起讨论:

  • 亲子沟通技巧,防止儿童使用不安全的物质;
  • 关于毒品使用和成瘾的真相和错误观念。

语言不是问题,我们也有说中文的家长与您分享交流,鼓励家长们积极参与。
