Wm. E. Hay to host first annual wellness showcase today

Parents, students, and community members are invited to participate in a variety of half-hour sessions.

WILDCATS’ CORNER — Thank you to those who attended parent-teacher interviews last week, and all the students who did well at the Grand Concert.

Mental Health Week started this Monday, May 1 and will end on May 7. There are a number of activities that have happened at the school to raise awareness around mental health and to reduce the stigma. Wednesday was “Hats On for Mental Health” day, YCAT will be revealing a Friendship Bench, and approximately one in every five students will be wearing an emerald green t-shirt which reads “1 in 5” across the front. This will be a visual representation of the approximately one in five Canadians who experience mental health issues. In a school the size of Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus, that’s over 150 students who may experience mental illness in a year. CARS staff from Clearview’s Mental Health Capacity Building Initiative visited the Grade 7 and 8 classrooms with information and activities around supporting mental wellness. Please “get loud” for mental health this week by wearing green, and by talking openly about mental health and wellness.

Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus is also hosting its first annual Wellness Showcase on Thursday, May 4 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Parents, students, and community members are invited to participate in a variety of half-hour sessions that will focus on fitness, nutrition, mental health, and a variety of other topics. Presenters will range from fellow community members to teachers and students from Wm. E. Hay. Following the Wellness Showcase, parents are invited to attend a presentation from Dr. Jody Carrington starting at 7 p.m. Her presentation is titled, “Our Parenting Superpowers: A Discussion about the Relationship that Means the Most to Us.”
