Bullying in the Age of Technology Workshop

If you’re interested in this workshop, please RSVP here.

What is a parent's role when their child is the victim of bullying?  What should a parent's role be when their child is the bully?  How might we go about reducing the incidence and impact of bullying?  Such questions become even more complicated in the highly technological and media saturated world in which our children live.  In this workshop, we will discuss ways of helping children to deal with the interpersonal problems of bullying and victimization.  Special focus will be given to some of the most common approaches to intervention, as well as possible new ways of addressing this issue.

Importance of the Arts in Education & Painting Holiday Cards

A core belief at The Cottage School is that art, in all forms, be it visual arts, music, dance, imaginative play or drama, positively influences children in their physical, affective and cognitive development, their desire to learn and their love for school.

The process of creativity and expression is one that should not be oppressed, Creativity is an instinct and a need for all and it is imperative that we allow children the time to create. Art enables children to be critical, innovative thinkers, to problem solve, create, communicate, express and experiment. Art helps children to develop inventive and productive ways to think outside the box, and is an indispensable tool when it comes to developing physical, cognitive and social skills.

This workshop is open to the public so feel free to bring a friend!
