ISPTA 3-Part Parent Speaker Series

As part of our commitment to support student and parental wellbeing, ISPTA has sponsored 3-part Parent Speaker Series for our parent community.

The first session of this 3-part series was held at Island School on 29 February. Parents from IS and our primary schools (Glenealy, Peak and Beacon Hill) mingled at the beginning of the session with tea, coffee and canapes. Dr. Mark Gandolfi, our guest speaker, is a well-established and renowned mental health and wellness practitioner with over 40 years of expertise working with children and families. In this first session, Dr. Mark shared knowledge and practical tips for ‘emotional regulation’ as the core for effective parenting and workplace and personal relationships.

We are very thankful to Dr. Mark for his engaging and interactive presentation supporting parents’ emotional regulation and wellbeing.

Building on emotional regulation, the subsequent sessions will focus on parenting strategies and effective parenting promoting positive social media engagement. These will be ZOOM webinar sessions with Q & A at the end.
