What you should know

Parenting in the 21st century has unique challenges.

How do we assist our children to stay calm and focussed, giving them a stable emotional platform from which to face and solve problems.


Why you should attend

At school, we believe in taking a proactive approach to positive well being. We raise awareness, reach out and support, and try to give our students strategies to help them to be resilient in the face of personal challenge.

Dr Quratulain Zaidi, Mindful Parenting Workshop will start to discuss how to help students overcome these obstacles, by developing their sense of responsibility, perseverance, self esteem and self-regulation. There will be a 40 minutes presentation following by questions and answers session.


Please join us on Monday 20th February
