Supporting Student Mental Health Needs

​The topic of support for student mental health needs has been a noteworthy topic of late. We also know that health needs such as anxiety are something that many of our students live with and are expected to manage every day at school. While we are educators, and not mental health professionals, we do attempt to create the best possible environment where all students feel safe and secure, and we know that starts with an empathetic, caring teacher. Our teachers at Fish Creek School are fortunate to have regular in-service professional development from our friends at Alberta Health Services, and we know that this is an area for continued growth. We are very proud of the work our staff does on a daily basis, but we are always looking to grow in this regard. 

Two of our teachers, Paula McAuley and Janice Murphy, do their part to provide an extra something special for many of our students with anxiety.
