Supporting Mental Health and Well-Being at Sudbury Catholic January 24-28, 2022
It’s Bell Let’s Talk Day on Wednesday, January 26 and Sudbury Catholic is joining the conversation all week long to raise awareness and encourage discussions about mental health.
One in five Canadians will experience a mental health illness at some point in their life, and most will be cautious about talking about it or reaching out for help. For anyone living with a mental illness, stigma is one of the biggest hurdles to overcome. In fact, it is why two-thirds of people do not seek help. Bell Let’s Talk Day reminds us that talking is the best way to start breaking down the barriers associated with mental illness and accessing mental health support.
COVID-19 is affecting every aspect of our lives including a profound impact on our mental health and wellbeing. The pandemic has magnified historically deep-rooted economic, social, and racial inequities that continue to disproportionately affect Black, Indigenous, LGBTQQI2S+ and students living with special needs, in addition to other vulnerable and marginalized communities. We need to be flexible, creative, compassionate, and culturally responsive to support the realities and lived experiences these students and their families face. From helping people to recognize stressors to being there for someone, all these actions support mental health and strengthen our school communities during this challenging time.
During the week of January 24 to 28, educators are encouraged to intentionally pause and take some time to have classroom discussions about mental health and well-being.
Grades 2-12 students across the province were invited to participate in the first-ever Skills Ontario’s Junk Drawer Races! In this program, students had fun while exploring various challenges to build their skills and explore different pathways.
This morning the winners of the Regional round of the competition were announced on Skills Ontario’s YouTube channel.
We are excited to report that a team of BAC grade 7 students placed 2nd in the Air Glider Challenge and three teams of BAC grade 8 students placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the hydraulic crane challenge.
These teams will be competing in the Provincial Championship round and will have until February 16th to review their existing blueprints, potentially modify their designs to meet the provincial challenge and construction requirements while explaining their modifications and submit their new submissions. Provincial Submissions will be evaluated by industry volunteers, and the top three teams will be awarded prizes by Skills Ontario. Winning teams will be notified by March 10th .
We wish our students the best of luck and thank Skills Ontario, industry partners, the Government of Ontario and Bombardier for giving our students a unique experiential learning opportunity.
Please be aware that the Sudbury Student Services Consortium is encountering a higher than normal rate of absences for bus drivers due to COVID-19 and the Omicron variant.
Each morning they will post daily cancellations on our website, parents are reminded to verify the cancellations by visiting www.businfo.ca. Please be advised that parents will not be receiving telephone calls or emails.
Sudbury Catholic Schools is pleased to invite Grade 7-12 classrooms to attend a presentation by our guest speaker, Tim O’Loan. Tim O’Loan is a is a proud indigenous (Sahtu Dene) Veteran, having served 10 years (1983-1993) in the military. During his presentation, classes will be taken through Tim’s story as he provides his insight and experiences to provide an engaging presentation that ends with an interactive Q/A session.
WHEN: WEDNESDAY JANUARY 12, 2022 AT 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM
“Tim O’Loan comes from two wounded communities: one military, one Indigenous. Tim is a proud Indigenous (Sahtu Dene) Veteran, having served 10 years (1983-1993) in the military. Throughout Tim’s life he experienced massive amounts of racism and trauma. The racism and his search for his identity was something Tim struggled with until his mid 40’s when he started working at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).” Given his unique history, Tim O’Loan now identifies as a knowledge keeper and continues to share this unique perspective across Canada and beyond, particularly through the Indigenous Veterans lens, mental health and Reconciliation.
