The Federation of Quebec Parents' Committees (FCPQ) invites parents from Quebec and its partners in the education community to participate in its first virtual Congress, which will take place from May 25 to 29, 2021.
At the opening of the Congress, Pauline Marois, Premier of Quebec from 2012 to 2014, will address the participants. Ms. Marois was Minister of Education when the first school boards were set up and has always supported parental involvement in the school environment. During the opening night, Jean-François Roberge, current Minister of Education, and several guests will speak about the role and impact of parents in the success of young people.
“Over the past year, we have surrounded ourselves with education and digital experts to provide useful and entertaining services and activities for parents. We choose to consider the impossibility of holding the Congress in attendance as an opportunity to bring together a large number of parents and partners from all over Quebec, ”says Kévin Roy, president of the FCPQ.
All activities will focus on the interests and needs of parents to support their children. Participants will be able to choose from the fifty or so conferences offered on Wednesday and Thursday evenings and on Saturdays during the day, under themes as diverse as parent-child relationships, school transitions, climate and well-being at school, diversity, school administration, personal development, digital skills and many more.
The complete program and online registration are available on the platform created especially for the event: https://event.fourwaves.com/fcpq2021.
