Next DPAC General Meeting

Feb. 26, 2020
7:00 pm (Registration at 6:45)
District Education Centre (DEC) Building
14033 – 92nd Avenue, Surrey

Feb. 26 is Pink Shirt Day (Anti-Bullying Day, Be Kind Day, etc.). We encourage our kids to wear pink to support anti-bullying, we plan bake sales and activities with pink as the theme, and encourage our kids to focus on kindness. However, we as parents never seem to have a much-needed conversation regarding bullying. We especially avoid the discussion when it’s about parents bullying other parents.

Bullying within PACs does exist, and it’s time we had a conversation about it. How it affects us mentally. How it affects the children around us who may witness the bullying between parents.

We invite you to attend our upcoming DPAC meeting where we will be discussing the side effects of bullying on our children and our parents. We will also discuss proposed resolutions for the BCCPAC AGM in May, and proxy voting for PACs who are voting members of BCCPAC (see https://bccpac.bc.ca/index.php/members/membership-list).
