Assembly with the BC Lions
The Be More Than a Bystander program will be @ Central Campus on March 5 afternoon (1:15 to 3:00). Every two years, they tour northern BC and visit us.
Be More Than a Bystander is a ground-breaking initiative between the Ending Violence Association of BC and the BC Lions aimed at substantially increasing understanding of the impact of men’s violence against women.
They bring 2 players to speak to the school for a 45-minute, assembly-style presentation, and then host a ‘break-out’ session in a classroom afterwards with a subset of 20-30 students.

AB ED NEWS
One of the most important jobs we have in our department is goal setting. It is a proven way for people to accomplish their goals. Although many students roll their eyes, “Do I really have to do this?”, it is a huge life skill to learn and use for life.
Why do we goal set? “The process of setting goals allows students to choose where they want to go in school and what they want to achieve. By knowing what they want to achieve, they know what they have to concentrate on and improve. Goal setting gives students long-term vision and short-term motivation. Having sharp, clearly defined goals, which students can measure, will allow them to take pride in accomplishing those goals. They can see clear forward progress in what might have seemed a long drawn out process.” (teachingmonster.com)
It’s not just about school though, goal setting will help in any aspect of our life, we just need to identify it and make a plan. Kirsten Davies ~ Coach Mentor, Ab Ed
