How to Deal with Children’s Anxiety
When: Thursday, 5 December 2019, 1:30pm Where: Hillside
We recognise that we are currently in a climate of uncertainty with the recent events taking place in Hong Kong, and this may cause some anxiety across our learning community.
We have invited Dr Mark Gandolfi, (PhD, MSc, MS, BSc) to host a talk at Hillside. In this workshop, Dr Mark will share tools/strategies to help children (and adults) cope with anxiety. These tools are practical and also transferable to many situations.

He has substantial clinical experience in working with children, teenagers, adults/parents.

The Importance of Open Play
When: POSTPONED to Term 2 Where: Hillside
This workshop aims to demonstrate what active learning looks like at Hillside, particularly during our Open Play time. We will start with a short presenation and then share different learning opportunities with parents and explain the learning intention behind each one (with the aim of enabling parents to reinforce and extend their child’s learning at home).
We hope that this parent workshop will provide parents in attendance with a bank of ideas and activities to do with their child at home.
