The Friday PD day had a focus on building relationships. In the morning, we learned about the link between building meaningful relationships and emotional-regulation. In the afternoon, we learned about building relationships and supporting our First Nations, Métis and Inuit students and community.
Jody Carrington presented on the power of building meaningful relationships with children. One of the biggest takeaways for us was the importance of ensuring that each child feels valued. When the community of parents, family members, coaches, mentors, educational assistants, teachers and administrators seeks a meaningful connection to each child by getting excited to see them and by actively trying to get to know them, children can thrive social, emotionally and academically.
Listening to Jody Carrington, we were reminded how honored we are to be part of the Campbelltown community where we are able to work together to help each child recognize their value.
