Focus: Indigenous Education and Mental Health and Wellness
Date: February 17th, 2023
Time: 8:30am – 1:00pm
ISABC Pro-D Day is an opportunity for ISABC teachers and colleagues to get together to either share their learning or experience professional learning through workshop sessions. This is a chance for you to meet other ISABC independent school members and develop a vast network outside your school with like-minded colleagues from all over the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.
On Friday 17th February 2023, the Independent Schools Association of BC is organizing an online conference, ‘Healing the land and mind’, focusing on Indigenous education and elevating the conversation around mental health and wellness. Similar to last year, parents are invited to join the conference to share in the learning.
