Raising a Body-Positive Child

Join Natalie Borch for a workshop and conversation about how to raise kids to feel confident in their bodies, how to speak about bodies with our children, and stop the cycle of negative body-image.

Natalie is a local mom, entrepreneur and body confidence speaker. She is the owner of The Pink Studio, a body-positive fitness and dance studio on the Danforth. Natalie is also a speaker who shares her tips and stories with corporate teams across Ontario, and on the air as a body confidence expert on The Morning Show and The Social.

Growing up in the competitive dance world, Natalie learned how dangerous the things we hear as children about diets, eating and bodies can shape your confidence and self-worth well into adulthood. Raising her own tween daughter, she is passionate about breaking that cycle and helping our children have healthy relationships with their own bodies.

Anti-Black Racism Workshop – Part II is tomorrow – don’t forget to register!

Workshop for Frankland families, educators and members of our community (open to the wider community and other schools- feel free to share). PART II of a 3-part workshop; but no need to have attended the previous session – feel free to attend.

Register to receive Zoom link on April 27:https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1S8hF0iQKe4aviQw1RfJ3M7mihylQvUJT6BL8a_LBxG4/viewform?ts=6075f745&edit_requested=true

Workshop description (PART II):

– The second session of the workshop moves from theory into a practice for sharing tools with children on how to recognize, challenge, and resist anti-Black racism.

– Facilitators will provide tips and resources for how to present information and analysis to children in a way that is age appropriate, safe, empowering, and engaging.

– The group will discuss how children and families can engage in self-love and transformative allied actions and will plan mini lessons for their families in breakout groups.

NOTE: active participation during the workshop is welcome and encouraged, but absolutely not mandatory! Feel free to attend to ‘only’ learn and listen, use the chat function if you prefer, and have cameras on or off. The most important step is to care enough to show up and be eager to learn! And please do stay as long as possible – the breakout rooms & closing session were incredibly well-received in the last workshop.

Organized by the Frankland School Council’s Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) Committee, in collaboration with the principal’s office. Facilitated by the Freedom School Toronto.

    We’re so excited to announce our NEW ONLINE FALCONWEAR SHOP!!
    Check out the NEW styles + be sure to place your order by Wednesday April 28th. If you miss this window, don’t worry – we’ll be reopening the store in the Fall.
    Orders will be ready at the end of May/early June. If we are closed to in-person learning at that time, we will do our best to establish a safe neighbourhood pick up location for those who choose ‘ship to school’ when ordering. Free curbside pick up from Scarborough and ship to home (at an additional cost) are also available.
    Note: Falconwear is intended to raise our Frankland spirit and is not a fundraiser for the school.
