Talk Sex Today

Talk Sex Today.
Body Science Boot Camp for Parents

Parenthood never arrives with a rulebook, and when it comes to explaining the world of sexual health to your child, it can be hard not to end up a bright shade of red. Using humor and straight talk in an open, interactive environment, Saleema Noon Sexual Health Educators will show you how easy it is to convey healthy, positive messages about sexual health to kids.

In this workshop parents will learn:

• Why we need to talk to children about sexual health at a young age
• How to reduce risk of child sexual abuse
• What children should know at each stage of development, with specific examples of how to explain concepts and processes
• How to become their kids’ preferred source of sexual health information
• How to normalize open, honest sexual health conversations in their family
• How to effectively answer even the toughest questions kids ask
• What will be covered in Body Science workshops for students

DPAC is recruiting parents to provide a fresh perspective

DPAC represents all local PACs (Parents’ Advisory Councils) at the school district level in conversations having direct impact on policies, budgets and the overall culture of education within our district.

DPAC asked some tough questions 4 years ago, that ultimately led to significant changes within School District 83. We are proud of the contribution DPAC has made to changes in transparency, accountability and communication between the school district and our communities. For example, DPAC requested improved transparency and a broader understanding of the annual budget process, which we are pleased to see in place today.

SD83 DPAC has been a positive, effective and involved parent voice over the past several years. It is important that a strong parent voice continue to represent the perspectives of our Shuswap families.

DPAC is looking for parents to fill executive positions and Directors at Large; current President, Kari Wilkinson will continue in the position of Past President to assist with a smooth transition.

New and current DPAC Executive:

  • Past President (Acting President): Kari Wilkinson, Salmon Arm
  • Vice President: Monica Seys, Sorrento
  • Treasurer: Corryn Grayston, Tappen, Sunnybrae
  • Secretary: Erna Jacobs, Enderby
