    PARENTS' FORUM – Sex and the Smartphone Generation: How to Talk Openly with Teenagers
    Tuesday 28 November 2017, 7pm - 8.30pm (bar from 6.30pm) - a panel discussion for parents

     

    We have a great panel line-up of excellent speakers for CSG parents on this topical issue, so do come along on Tuesday evening. Today’s kids are navigating pressures from social media, sexting and readily accessible porn that we, as parents, never had to contend with at their age. The best way to help shore up their resilience is by being open, and by talking with them early and often. But the conversation may not always come easily.

    From 7pm to 8.30pm in the 6th Form block, with a bar from 6.30pm. See the poster for more details.

    EASYFUNDRAISING - Raise Money for Camden School for Girls When you Shop Online

    One of the easiest ways to raise funds to support the school is by signing up to Easyfundraising - the school receives a free donation when you shop online with a huge range of over 3,000 retailers - including for example Amazon, Argos, Boden, British Museum, Expedia, Go Ape, John Lewis, London Zoo, M&S, Rymans, Sainsbury's, Tesco, Thorpe Park and many, many more. Sign up before you start any online shopping for Christmas and make it a double present. You can also set up a reminder on your computer so that it prompts you every time you are shopping with an Easyfundraising supporter. Last year, our Easyfundraisers raised almost £700 for the school. Every little helps!
