See Suffragette Today at 4:00 pm @ the Princess Theatre

The Status of Women committee warmly invite you to join them in attending a screening of the film Suffragette. This riveting film chronicles women’s struggle to earn the right to vote, an important and often understudied piece of women’s history.

Movie Nation called this film “the best film of 2015,” and with such heavy-hitting actors as Meryl Streep and Helena Bonham-Carter, it promises to be a powerful and moving story. To find out more about the film and to see its trailer, please check out its page on the Princess Cinema website: http://www.princesscinemas.com/movie/suffragette

Members pay their admission, but are invited to stay after the film for a complimentary beverage in the Princess Cafe, where the Status of Women committee members will be leading an informal discussion of the film.

  • When? Wednesday November 25, at 4:30pm
  • Meet in the Princess Theatre Cafe between 4 -4:30pm; look for the WROTL sign!
  • Where? Princess Twin Cinema (48 King St. N, Kitchener).

Workshop: Student Mental Health – Thurs., Dec. 3, 2015

PROGRAMMING FOR STUDENT NEEDS: A STUDENT MENTAL HEALTH WORKSHOP

As the number of students with special needs in the regular classroom increases, it is essential that teachers are supported in working with these students and their unique needs. This after school workshop will focus on developing student mental health awareness and strategies to support student mental health.

The PL Committee is pleased to welcome George Mantik as he takes us through strategies to deal with mental health issues, both as a classroom teacher and a daily occasional teacher.

Free resources are provided to each attendee.  Register early as space is limited!

A light meal will be provided.  Dependent Care subsidy available upon request.

Extra parking is available diagonally across the street at the “Big Bear” plaza.

Please note that if you are placed on a waiting list you will be contacted by email if a space becomes available.
