Teen Brain, with Nathan Wallis

This is a collaboration between PATHS - Parents And Teachers at Helensville School and Kaipara College PTSA - Parents, Teachers and Students Association, is bringing the Aotearoa’s expert neuroscience educator Nathan Wallis to Helensville.  This is not a fundraiser for the Helensville Primary School or Kaipara College but it is an opportunity to bring events like this to share with the community.
Nathan Wallis, host of the documentary “All in the Mind”, and co-host of the TV series “The Secret life of Girls” has been captivating audiences over 250 times per year to sell out events in New Zealand, Australia and China.
During adolescence, part of your teenage brain “shuts for renovations”. This is part of the brain responsible for controlling your teenager’s moods, for understanding consequences and thinking about the well-being of others. So whilst you can’t expect teens to be able to display these behaviours consistently during adolescence, there are ways that you can enhance and maximise the times when they can. Understanding the changes that are taking place for your teen will help you to navigate successfully these important and formative years.
Teen Brain will be on Wednesday 14 April, from 7.30pm to 9.00pm at Kaipara College. Tickets are available at www.eventfinder.co.nz. Early bird ticket prices are available.
Nathan will also be holding a Teachers’ Workshop on the same day, where he will share his expertise on the changes happening to the teen brain during adolescence. This will be a rare opportunity for teachers to have a Q&A with Nathan.
This workshop has been kindly sponsored by these wonderful local businesses that deserve recognition: Lions Club Of Helensville, ECE Astute Accounting, Mcleod Motors, GJ Gardner Kumeu.
