Sed Vitae Speaker Series: Cultivating a Sense of Belonging

Visitation School is delighted to welcome Danielle Harrison, a member of the Board of Trustees, on Wednesday, January 24 at 7 p.m. for an engaging discussion on how to foster an environment where your daughter can confidently embrace her authentic self at school and at home. 

At the core of Salesian Spirituality lies the belief in the inherent goodness of every individual. Ms. Harrison will discuss how instilling this belief in your daughter can create a foundation for her to authentically embrace her many gifts while also helping those around her feel valued and accepted. We'll explore how understanding and appreciating diverse perspectives aligns with the teachings of empathy, compassion and inherent dignity within our Catholic faith. 

Supporting your daughter as she learns to listen actively and empathetically to others empowers her to listen actively and empathetically to others with differing viewpoints. Encouraging your daughter to see differences as enriching can profoundly impact her ability to navigate in school and beyond confidently with an open mind and a compassionate heart.

The Visitation School Sed Vitae Speaker Series features speakers who embody the school’s motto: Non Scholae, Sed Vitae: Not for School, but for Life.

Join us on Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. at Visitation School with a brief reception to follow. Event is free. Please share with friends and neighbors! Register here!
