The PAC Needs You!

April 17, 2018

The SIDES Parents' Advisory Council (PAC) is looking for more parents to be involved with our school committee. We need interested parents to take part in the ongoing planning and provision of the unique extra activities offered by SIDES through our PAC. These field trips, educational sessions, social events and unique learning opportunities enrich our children's educational careers. What do you have to do? Firstly, there is no fund raising involved! Simply attend a short meeting every 6 to 8 weeks to review proposals received from the SIDES teachers and decide whether PAC will be responsible for the funding. That's all! Please join and add your voice. Our next meeting is set for May 10th, 2018 at 10:15 a.m. at the Beaver Lake Site. Refreshments will be served. Looking forward to meeting you!

Parent Support Group

April 6, 2018

Parenting a child or teen with anxiety can feel like a lonely and overwhelming journey. You are not alone. Connect with other parents in a supportive environment. During this interactive group, hear from other parents, share ideas and discuss strategies for supporting yourself and your pre-teen or teen.

This drop-in support group will be held every second Thursday of each month and is open to all parents residing on the Saanich Peninsula. A Child and Youth Counselor will be on site to help facilitate the discussions. A $2 donation is requested to participate each month. The monthly group will be located at the SHOAL Centre, 10030 Resthaven Drive, Sidney.
