Sir Wilfrid Laurier, CBE

September 29, 2014

Thank You to Sir Wilfrid Laurier (CBE) – two great sessions with the students today, and parents tonight.  When you have to get extra chairs for the parents’ session – I think the students went home and explained the importance of the presentation for them as a parent!


Calgary Stampede – The Parents’ Session

September 27, 2014

This evening (Saturday) I returned to the Stampede grounds to speak to the parents of the Youth I had the pleasure of speaking to yesterday.

Thank You to the organizers of the event for hosting my two evenings with your community!

Calgary Stampede Youth Groups

September 26, 2014

This evening (Friday) I spoke to approx 200 students from various yourth groups with the Calgary Stampede.

From ages 12 – 21.  It offered an interesting deliverable to cover a vast age group – with positive results.


St Margaret, Calgary Catholic

September 25, 2014

Three excellent sessions at St Margaret today!  Wonderful to see parents not only from St Margaret, but from other schools (because they were not able to see me the night I was at their own school).

Loved the feedback from parents tonight – I was happy to share them all with your Principal.

Calgary Girls School

September 24, 2014

Second day in a row, I had the honour of returning to a school again!  But today the Calgary Girls School made me work a litter harder delivering FOUR presentations including the parents.

The girls this year were very direct in their questions.. the semi-circle of girls asking questions after the presentations, was AWESOME!

Parents – thanks again for attending, to the new parents who joined them!

Nose Creek Elementary, CBE

September 23, 2014

It’s a privilege to be asked by a school to speak with their community

It’s rewarding to change childrens lives, at that school

It’s an honour to be asked back to the school two years later.

I returned today to Nose Creek School in the N.W. and delivered three presentations.  Thank You for fun day, with a memorable comment from a Grade 8/9 student that I will never forget!

Livingstone Elementary School

September 22, 2014

Lundbreck, Albert.  Where?  2.5hrs south of Calgary (or just north of the State of Montana) in a postcard picture setting, I spent the day with students and parents of Livingstone Elementary School.

Thank You for inviting me, and your warm reception.


St Angela Merici, YCDSB

September 18, 2014

Thank You to St Angela Merici, and their Principal who has seen me at various schools for four years.  I appreciate your support of my message.  Great to see the students as they left today come up to me and the Principal advising how they were going home to “make changes”.  Very Rewarding!

Our Lady of Peace

September 17, 2014

Thank You Our Lady of Peace!  You could hear “a pin drop” as both your student groups listened to their respective presentations.

I appreciate the Principal contacting one of her peers to book me (and the day was not done!).  Very engaged parents this evening.

“Fabulous presentation – Every parent should hear this!” – Lisa, Mother – OLP

Waubaushene Elementary School

September 16, 2014

Thank You Waubaushene Elementary and Coldwater Elementary for allowing me to speak with your communities today.

Waubaushene is one of the oldest and smallest schools I have visited.  Wonderful kids – very attentive.  Thank You to the parents who attended this evening (along with the students who returned!)
