Please join Dr. Tom Nehmy at one of our two parent sessions on Wednesday, Nov. 6th. Dr. Nehmy will offer two workshops, one geared towards our elementary parents, the other for secondary parents. However, you are more than welcome to attend both!

At 8:40 a.m. in our ELAC Multi Purpose Room, our elementary parents are invited to:

Pathways to a Healthy Mind: The keys to resilience, mental health & wellbeing from early childhood onwards
This parent seminar for elementary parents will teach the most important concepts and strategies that parents need to know about raising mentally healthy kids. Mental health isn't just about feeling happy, it is about having sustainable wellbeing, showing resilience in the face of challenges, and expanding our capabilities over time. It will explore the specific risk and protective 'pathways' that influence the developmental trajectory of a child. Parents will leave with a broad overview of the key ingredients to mental health and resilience in children, as well as some practical ideas for how to put these concepts into practice.

At 6:00 p.m. in our library, our secondary parents are invited to:

Seven Secrets to a Healthy Mind
This parent seminar for secondary parents covers the key ingredients to becoming an effective self-manager of one's mental health. The seven 'secrets' are the core psychological skills and principles underpinning Dr Nehmy's award-winning wellbeing program and includes powerful self-reflection concepts and conversational prompts for parents to engage with their son or daughter around these vital skills. Parents will leave with a broad overview of the key ingredients to mental health and resilience in children, as well
some practical ideas for how to put these concepts into practice.


More information regarding his work can be found here.

We hope to see you on Wednesday, Nov. 6th!

This school year 629 students hail from 36 countries. Every year we review the composition of our student body to better understand and serve our community. This infographic shares highlights of the demographics of our community this school year. We believe that the diversity of our community is one of the best things about a Canadian Academy education.

We hope you are finding these columns helpful in understanding the school's finance and operations. If you have comments, questions, or suggestions for future subjects please send them to wscarborough@canacad.ac.jp. We look forward to hearing from you.
