Bothwell PAC is happy to inform you that we are in fact able to offer the babysitting course in February, instead of March as it was previously mentioned in our last newsletter. The babysitting course is open to anyone 11 years old or older (or completed grade 5). The course will be taught by certified Red Cross Instructor, Deidre Perron, at Bothwell School Friday, February 25th from 9:00-3:30. 

There is a minimum of six participants required for us to be able to host this course. This is open to anyone, so if you know of a student who does not attend Bothwell School, but would like to get their Babysitting Certificate, please feel free to forward this information on to them.

Registration deadline is Friday, Feb. 18th. Payment of $46.50 can be made by the Feb. 18th deadline in the form of cash or cheque (payable to Deidre Perron) and dropped off at the school, or by etransfer: (No password needed/she has auto-deposit)  Please do NOT pay on Parent Portal.

*Registered students will receive the Babysitter Manual on course day. On the day of the course, Students/Participants will need to bring a doll or medium size teddy bear to demonstrate diaper changing. Also, please bring a bagged lunch.
