Well Being March 2017

YOUR input needed: Parent focus group on student well-being. What does “well-being” mean to you? How can students' well-being be supported at school?

The Ontario Ministry of Education is looking to develop a K-12 student well-being framework to help support the mental health and wellness of all students.  

CSPA is hosting this parent session with Dr. Elizabeth Paquette (OCSB Mental Health Lead), to collect your ideas and opinions to share with the Ministry.  We know that students who have strong relationships and a positive sense of self are in a better position to reach their full potential. Come learn more about current initiatives in OCSB schools and share your ideas to promote well-being.
