Kim Leifso, Safer Schools Together 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Mental health and child anxiety have become large focuses in BC schools. Kim’s

presentation will outline how anxiety presents in a school setting and how it can be

mistaken for other behavioural concerns. Kim will also explain what’s happening in the

brain when a child or youth is anxious and will give parents some strategies to manage

anxiety and work with the school to establish mental wellness in the classroom.

Kim Leifso is a trainer with Safer Schools Together. For over 20 years, Kim has worked with

children, youth, families and couples involving a multitude of mental health issues and

other challenges. Kim holds a Master’s of Education in Counselling from the University

of British Columbia, is a registered clinical counselor and a member of the American

Association of Suicidology.

Burnaby DPAC

The School Act (Province of British Columbia) defines the responsibilities and authority of the DPAC as an advisory and advocacy council. It may make recommendations to the School Board through the School Board’s officials or by representation, and provide the School Board with information to assist in decision- making.

The Burnaby District Parent Advisory Council, known as the Burnaby DPAC, was formed to represent the interests of Burnaby parents in the public education system. The Burnaby DPAC is guided by a Constitution, and meets the last Monday of each month. Please note: there are no meetings in Dec, Jun, Jul or Aug.

DPAC is the recognized voice of parents at the district level, and is made up of representatives from each PAC in Burnaby School District #41. These school reps act as a liaison between their school PAC and DPAC, representing the views and interests of their PAC.

Burnaby DPAC’s focus for this year include:

  1. Supporting parent education
  2. Facilitating sharing of resources, knowledge and experience between PACs and parents
  3. Fostering positive relationships between trustees and PACs
  4. Providing meaningful input to the district regarding parents’ concerns and questions
