SEXUALITY AND YOUR CHILD (S&YC) PRESENTATION
On Thursday January 31st, at 7:30pm (immediately following the AGM), St. Bernadette Elementary will be hosting the Sexuality and you Child Presentations for all parents in who have children in grades K-6 (grade 7 parents will have their presentation on a different evening – more information to come). It is sponsored by the Archdioceses and once again attendance is mandatory. The evening is part of the Religious Education and Physical and Health Education (PHE) courses for your child. This night is designed to empower parents to recognize their role as primary educators in faith and truth in human sexuality.
Every session has a separate topic for parents and these topics change from year to year. Each session is reviewed and updated each year so you can expect a fresh presentation even if you have attended specific sessions previously. The objective of this evening is for parents to gain confidence in their ability to communicate about sexuality to their children.
