New Resource Books NOW AVAILABLE at West Royalty School Library

Through a Parent Engagement Grant from the PEI Home & School Federation, the West Royalty Home & School Association recently held a session with Wendy Gallant, our school counsellor. The purpose of this information session was to assist parents and their children with issues of childhood anxiety. Some resource books were purchased with funds from the grant. These titles are now available in our school library to be checked out/borrowed. Please visit the library to take advantage of these resources.
