Health & Life Skills
This year our school has prioritized positive mental health and wellness as a whole school initiative. Our mission is to bring awareness to mental health issues and to help students build positive mental health strategies. One of the strategies that we have exposed all of our students and staff to is the MindShift App from AnxietyBC. Please have a look at the App with your child. We are also very fortunate to have had a guest presenter, Natalie St. Hillaire who spoke about meditation, mindfulness and the importance of being present in your own lives, in the moment. Throughout the year we will continue to have ongoing dialogue with the staff and students to promote wellness and life-long strategies. We also have some guest presenters booked for the new year, including, MADD, Live Different and Anne Daniel’s to support these ongoing conversations.
