Davies is pleased to once again offer our MegaSkills Workshop Program! This free, 6-week course is designed for families to help develop the life skills needed for success in school and beyond.


What are MegaSkills?


Confidence, perseverance, teamwork, motivation, caring, effort, focus, responsibility, common sense, initiative, and problem-solving. We call these eleven areas MegaSkills. Through our free program at Davies, parents can help their child:

  • Do better at school.
  • Strengthen family bonds.
  • Get along better with others by equipping them with these essential life skills.


The MegaSkills program is intended with Davies parents in mind, but this is not the only audience! Bring your child, friend, relatives, or anyone else who has a connection with your student. We have parents who decide to attend solo and parents who decide to have their student attend with them. The choice is yours!


When you take our free MegaSkills program, you can expect:


  • Weekly activities and learning strategies to use at home
  • To learn confidence, focus, motivation, and more MegaSkills in a relaxed, supportive environment
  • To receive a “Completion of Program” certificate
  • Refreshments served at each session
  • A chance to win a weekly door prize


Register now for your space in this amazing free program.
