W.A.I.T. Symposium: Promoting Healthy Relationships
On Thursday, May 12, 2011, Prince Edward Collegiate Institute hosted Prince Edward County’s first W.A.I.T. Symposium (What Am I Thinking).
This full day event impacted all P.E.C.I. staff and students, plus a select group from every other high school in the board, and provided our communities with a deeper understanding of domestic violence.
This event included key-note speaker, Wambui Bahati, and interactive workshops facilitated by community members, which focused on defining domestic violence, and promoting healthy relationships amongst teens. After this event we hope that students will take the time to identify unhealthy situations and ask themselves: What Am I Thinking?
Our goal through this event was to teach students valuable lessons about healthy relationships that will help them make good decisions when choosing friends and romantic interests.
