We are very pleased to invite you to the following Parent Forum talk by Pam Tudin and Donald Curtis. We would encourage you to attend as this is a very real issue facing our children today and as a school we feel the more empowered you are as parents, the more equipped you will be in supporting your children.
Pam and Donald explore the ugly face of Cyberbullying and how kids get away with it. Cyberbullying is often spoken about in hushed tones but in this talk, they take us out of the realm of ‘shhh’, ‘what if’s’ and ‘don’t tell’, and into the realm of ‘when and …then’. The talk provides hands on skills for how to act in the moment, both with the children and the parents of those who bully and those who get bullied. Practical input, both at a psychological and legal level will be offered.
This particular talk is aimed at Grade 5 to Matric parents. We will be hosting a talk by Pam Tudin on Bullying addressing issues facing younger children at the Parent Forum in September.
Below see details in the poster, as well as more information on the two speakers. To book a seat, contact Oakhill Reception 044 383 6506 as space is limited.
