Let’s Talk About Our Kids! 5th CECCE Parents’ Forum a Success

OTTAWA, November 10, 2016 - The fifth edition of the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) parents’ forum, which took place last Saturday, was once again a success. Dozens of parents attended the lectures and workshops to explore a common theme: Let’s talk about our kids!

This year’s format encouraged more interaction among parents. They had opportunities to ask questions and interact with a panel of experts from the CECCE and a partner organization brought together to discuss topics suggested by parents in advance. Experts from the CECCE and the community were invited to contribute to the discussions and talk about board resources available to families. The panel included the principal of Learning Support Services, Special Education; the board’s mental health lead; and social workers.

“Participants enjoyed the panel discussion and the workshops so much and found the subjects so interesting and pertinent that they wanted the forum to last longer,” said Réjean Sirois, CECCE Director of Education. “During the forum, experts discussed very relevant issues such as anxiety in children, cyberbullying, and parent-teen relationships. It is important for the CECCE to ensure that parents are aware of the resources the board can offer to families that need them.”

“This free event gave families an opportunity to meet and talk about something that matters to all parents: their children’s well-being,” said Johanne Lacombe, CECCE Chair. “The success of the fifth edition validates the board’s investment in a forum to give parents the tools and answers they need to better understand their children and better support their development and success. The positive correlation between parents’ involvement in their children’s education and greater academic success is undeniable.”

For those who were not able to attend the event or who want more information, a report on the forum will be available to parents on the CECCE website ( in a few weeks.
