Parent Expo a resounding hit
The Parent Expo, which was held at CedarBridge Academy on Saturday, could become an annual event thanks to its overwhelming success.
The expo was a collaboration of 15 principals from public schools and private schools.
The event included information on youth-enhancing programmes such as the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, the Martial Arts Association, Bermuda Sloop Foundation, the Royal Bermuda Regiment and robotics clubs.
About 150 people attended.
“Study Skills” and ‘“Impact of Social Media” were the most popular options taken up according to spokesman Glenn Fubler.
The workshops were collaborations involving public and private sector educators.
“Addressing the Challenges of 21st-century Parenting” was a workshop enjoyed by a number of attendees.
During the “Finale Gathering”, students of Dellwood Middle provided their award-winning presentation called Stop the Violence.
Mr Fubler said: “I was pleased with the outcome of this unprecedented event which we believe had a positive impact on all of those who attended. It offered a glimpse of what can happen when we move out of our silos in order to collaborate as a community.
“We’ll look to make this an annual event and we already have the commitment of a number of persons, including Katie Davis, Bermudian author and assistant professor.
Acting Commissioner of Education Kalmar Richards gave a presentation urging parents to stand strongly with their children, while chairman of the Board of Education, Curtis Dickinson, shared some of his personal experiences as both a son of a single parent with significant health challenges, as well as his role as a father during transformative times.
