Events

The Hastings PAC organizes, supports and runs several events during the course of the school year.

PAC Speaker Series - Body Science by Saleema Noon

Wednesday June 3, 2020 from 7pm | Zoom

Saleema Noon from Saleema Noon Sexual Health Educators will present a parent’s workshop on Body Science.

PREREGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Read on for more details.

The talk is geared to educating parents about age-appropriate ways of teaching our children about Body Science (formerly known as “Sex Ed”). The Saleema Noon organization provides in-person workshops to students from K-7, teaching body science and sexual health curriculum. However, due to COVID-19, rather than presenting in person, Saleema Noon educators have created an online package that encompasses online videos for all the grade levels which will also be made available to all parents who sign up for the hosted talk on June 3rd. You can then share these age-appropriate videos with your kids at home.

There is no fee for the talk, however, registration is important in order to receive the materials. Here’s how to obtain access to the online videos and the live Zoom workshop:

  • Step 1: Fill out this FORM and make sure to type in your email correctly as an automatic confirmation will be sent. Do this soon so you get the online workshop links and June 3rd Zoom meeting link in time.
  • Step 2: For the online video workshops, you will receive two emails from saleema-noon-sexual-health-educators@t.kajabimail.net within 5 days after you submit the form. The first email will notify you that you’ve been granted access to the online workshops. The second email (sent directly after) will provide you with your unique login information. The login information is not shareable.
  • Step 3: Log in to Body Science Online by clicking on the link provided in the email and entering login information. You will be able to access the online workshops for 10 days. The day you receive the link/login information is Day 1 of access. You can access the videos and resources as often as you would like during this time. Click on "workshops" if you're not directly sent to the workshops page.
  • Step 4: For the June 3rd live Zoom workshop, you will receive an email from Hastings PAC with login details. We’ll send this out on June 2nd to everyone who fills out the FORM.

Important notes:

  • Once you fill out the form and click submit, your information will be received by our team. You do not need to contact us. You will receive login information within 5 days.
  • Each workshop is broken down into multiple videos. Below each video you will find a written summary in both English and Mandarin.
  • If you don’t receive the link within 5 days, please check your promotions inbox if you're using Gmail and junk/spam boxes in case emails were sent there.
  • We suggest you use Google Chrome to access Body Science Online. Kajabi, the learning platform we are using, seems to work better with this browser.
  • When you log in to the platform, you will be automatically added to the Body Science Online email list, which means you may get emails from us in the future. This list is separate from the Saleema Noon Sexual Health Educators communications we send out every now and then. If you would like to remove yourself from this email list you can do so via settings when you log in to the platform. This will not hinder your ability to enjoy the online workshops. You can also unsubscribe in the future using the “unsubscribe” button at the bottom of any email.
