A PARENT WORKSHOP: SAFE INTERNET & GAMING

Our Student Service Team is hosting a Parent Workshop on the topic of internet and gaming addiction.

We'll also share guidelines and strategies to help you as you work with your children on appropriate internet and gaming.

The workshop will be at WYIS on Wednesday, March 31, from 2:10 - 3:05. Presenter: William Lee. Translation will be provided.

The workshop is particularly useful for secondary parents, though all WYIS parents are welcome to attend.
