Summer Workshops

HRCE Students in Grades 2-8 are invited to register for fun and engaging virtual summer workshops!

Each week our teams (including Child and Youth Care Practitioners, School Psychologists, Speech Language Pathologists and Social Workers/Counsellors) will meet with children and their same-aged peers and use games, conversation, books, movement activities and all kinds of other fun ways to develop their social, emotional and communication skills.

In accordance with current public health directives, a limited number of in-person workshops for students at select schools will be offered. These schools are: John MacNeil, Chebucto Heights, Clayton Park, Joe Howe, Ian Forsyth, Sycamore Lane, Rockingstone and St. Catherine’s. Workshops are for children in Grades 2-7 who attend these schools and the elementary or junior high feeder school. Click here for more information.

Supportive Counselling/Coaching/Skill Building Sessions

Could your child benefit from individual or small group supportive counselling, coaching or skill building sessions this summer? Book an appointment!
HRCE School Psychologists are offering virtual sessions for students in Grades P-12 through our confidential tele-education platform.
Psychologists will support students as they learn problem-solving strategies to practice in their daily interactions. Together, they’ll work on building coping skills, stress management and conflict resolution. Through this, students will explore ways to build self-esteem and stronger relationships with peers.
Please note: Supportive counselling is NOT an emergency mental health service.
Skill Building Sessions are designed to support students build on their organizational strategies, executive functioning strategies, social or emotional regulation or conflict resolution skills. The purpose is to support students and their well-being so they’re in the best position to achieve academic success. Join us!
