Memories from the 2020 FALL CONFERENCE
Like so many things in 2020, this year’s edition of the QFHSA’s Fall Conference was done a little differently. Instead of our traditional day-long event, we reimagined our conference as a series of evening workshops on Zoom. Six workshops were held between November 17th and 26th. The range of ideas explored was vast—from bringing Canadian Black history to the classroom to taking care of our mental health during the pandemic and finding smart ways to make at-home schooling a success. The QFHSA would like to thank Marketing and Events Professional Samantha Whipps; Family Life Educator Karen Delage; Dr. Michael Canuel, Carolina Toteda, and Robert Costain from LEARN Quebec; Historian Dr. Dorothy Williams; Software Developer Corinna Rake; and Joanne Lawson and Christopher Laurin of the Champions for Life Foundation for sharing their knowledge and expertise with us. Interested in finding out more about the workshops? See Pages 8-14 of the Winter QFHSA News, where several contributors share what they learned from the workshops.

Memories from the 2019 FALL CONFERENCE
The 2019 edition of the QFHSA Fall Conference was held on November 9, 2019 at Macdonald High School in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec. The day-long event was an opportunity for Home and School delegates from across the province to meet and listen to inspiring speakers.
