Principal Coffee Connections

We are offering a coffee connection session once a week starting in January.

Current Dates: 

  • Monday, January 18 at 7:30 am
  • Wednesday, January 27 at 7:30 am
  • Thursday, February 4 at 7:30 am

Description: Borrowing from a model used by the BCPVPA, OPC is offering 30-minute “Coffee connections” once a week for the next few weeks. During these drop-in sessions you can join us with your morning coffee, tea, juice or water and discussion some of the issues you are dealing with along with principals and vice-principals from across Ontario. We may choose to focus on a specific topic, or we may not. The intention is to provide a space where you can have a copy and friendly conversation with colleagues. As we continue to develop this concept, we will be looking from your feedback.
