SHS News and Announcements
Our annual Health & Wellness Day piggybacked on CMHA's mental health week as we ran workshops and brought in speakers to engage with boys about feeling good about who you are, having balance in your life and managing the ups and downs of emotions.
With grade-appropriate activities for everyone, boys in primary grades were making mandalas and learning about self-regulation with breathing exercises.
Junior boys spent time in art therapy workshops and the Comfort Squad brought in their therapy dogs. Boys were also in a yoga workshop.
In the Intermediate division, boys were learning about self-esteem and body image and enjoyed a tea service ceremony.
Our goal is to have the boys understand that mental health is a key to their overall health. The day wrapped up with Learning Buddies connecting on the field and reviewing their takeaways from what was a powerful day of learning and wellbeing.
