Halton District School Board annually hosts a free Parent Involvement Committee Conference (PIC) which is open to all families (elementary and high school) in the Halton District School Board.  This is the 8th annual conference which will be held on Saturday, October 17, 2015 from 8 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., at White Oaks Secondary School, South Campus (1330 Montclair Drive, Oakville).

This year’s Building Healthy Relationships conference theme will provide a variety of new workshops and will also include some that have been well received by parents in years past. Workshops will address numeracy, literacy, teaching kids about money management, promoting positive mental health for teens, community resources availability, helping students craft an academic and career pathway for success, high school course selections, managing behaviour and discipline, violence prevention and cyberbullying, and mental health and wellness.
