11th Annual Parents Conference

Jacqui Jenkins Parent Liaison Coordinator, parents Angela, Kelly and Himigani were invited to the 11th Tower Hamlets Annual Parents Conference at the CCT Venue in Marsh Wall.

The annual conference is hosted by the Tower Hamlets Parental Engagement Team. Each year parents from Tower Hamlets School come together to celebrate the crucial role parents play in supporting children’s learning and achievement.  The theme of the event was' Informed and Empowered" – Keeping our Children Safe and Well . Guest speakers included the Deputy Mayor of Tower Hamlets Sirajul Islam, Chief Excutive Will Tuckley, Jill McGinley Head of Parent & Family Support, Parents from the Tower Hamlets Parent Carer Council and a speaker from CEOPS with important information on how to keep you child safe online. 

Our parents attended two workshops which included;

  • Mental Health and Well Being - Supporting Children to Thrive Tips for providing the practical and emotional support children need to build self-esteem and resilience.
  • Raising Awareness in Local Communities What is it and how to protect our children
  • Speakeasy: How to Talk to your Children about Growing Up and Relationships Top tips to help you maintain a healthy and open dialogue and manage difficult conversations with your child 
  •  Healthy Children, Ready to Learn 

There was also a prize draw at the end of the conference, we all had to look under our chairs and find a envelope to see if we had won a prize ! I am delighted to announce that one of our parents Angela won a voucher for a haircut at Sean Hanna Hairdressers in Canary Wharf !

We all had a great time at the conference and we were also treated to a hot lunch and a fantastic desert.
