From the PIC Symposium

The Ministry of Education held its second annual symposium for Parent Involvement Committees last weekend. Lots of interesting tidbits came out of it. We share with you here a few links that we learned about at the symposium.

SpeakUp – a Ministry of Education program for and about the Student Voice

Bullying:  We Can All Help Stop It – a publication from the Ministry of Education

Promoting a Positive School Climate:  A Resource fro Schools

Kids Help Phone – much more than just a crisis line!  And for all ages –  5 to 20.  Check it out.

Some wonderful animated vignettes on parent involvement from COPA.   Definitely worth taking a look.  (COPA is the Centre ontarienne de prévention des agressions)
