Mental Health First Aid Training

If you are interested in taking a two day course to become certified in Mental Health First Aid, please see Mrs. Waldick. This is an excellent course, and would benefit students heading away to college/university or those who intend to pursue a career working with people.

“Mental Health First Aid is the help provided to a person developing a mental health problem, experiencing the worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis. Just like physical first aid is provided until medical treatment can be obtained, MHFA is given until appropriate support is found or until the crisis is resolved.”  Visit Mental Health First Aid Canada for more information.

 

There have also been a number of announcements regarding spring sports – if you are interested in playing, be sure to seek out the coach for more details.

March 19th Update

Welcome back – we hope everyone had a restful March Break.  It’s been great seeing many of you at your placements, and we will see many more of you this week.  If you have not already confirmed your visit with Mrs. Chateauvert or Mrs. Wrigley, please be sure to do so.

On TUESDAY MARCH 20TH, you have a log sheet due as well as Journal Reflection #1.  Your completed journal should be submitted on Google Classroom, and your log sheet handed into the coop mailbox in Student Services.
