One of the key features of building and sharing our values as a community includes paying attention to our collective health. As you know, Healthy Bodies and Healthy Minds is a priority we have set in our Strategic Plan. On January 21st and 22nd the school will host Julie-Anne Richards, a clinical counsellor who works extensively with young people and families on stress and anxiety identification and management. The full staff shared an afternoon with Julie-Anne in November and it was an incredibly valuable experience. On the 21st she will present to our MYP and DP students during the day. On the evening of the 22nd from 6pm – 8pm in the school gym, Julie-Anne will speak to our parents and community members. Please be sure to mark this date in your calendar and plan to attend. The benefits of our having a shared understanding of these compelling issues and a tool box for managing and supporting each other through them cannot be underestimated.
This event is open to the public so please feel free to invite friends and family. Childcare is available at the school during the seminar.
While you are welcome to simply drop in for the event, it would be a significant help for us to get a feel for how many people will join us – if you could, would you please RSVP using the form below:
