The 18th January we welcomed almost 200 guests and speakers to our second Parent Conference discussing mental and physical well being. Our speakers were of the highest calibre and our participants were in for a very informative and enjoyable day. With keynote speakers Professor John Stein, Elizabeth Burton Phillips and Karl Hopwood covering a wide range of subjects the day was packed with information for our delegates to digest and discuss. After a variety of workshops from ‘Skills for Life’ to ‘Teaching young people to find their Values, Purpose and Direction’ and managing ‘Anxiety’ our delegates had a well deserved break.
After a wonderful lunch with delicious desserts the afternoon sessions began again in earnest. Covering such subjects as Drugs FAM, Internet Safety, Understanding and responding to challenging behaviour to mention but a few. The day drew to a close and all our guests and delegates left with a lot of information to consider and reflect on.
Thank you to all the guests, staff and attendees that made the day such a success!
"I've been to lots and lots of conferences over the years and to be perfectly honest, that has got to be one of the best organised ones I've been to. Very professional and slick. Speakers were all great, food very tasty and environment comfortable - can't ask for any more." Paul K
