Christ-King preaches ‘healthy growth, good habits’

Christ-King Catholic School in Stettler staff is eager to start the new school year. Despite no new teachers on staff, the administration

Christ-King Catholic School in Stettler staff is eager to start the new school year. Despite no new teachers on staff, the administration wants to enhance education, as always.

“Most of our classes are now single-graded and we had to build another classroom to accommodate this class,” said Veronica Pinkoski, now in her second year as principal of the school.

Steps to improving health of students will be developed in a health action plan.

“Lots of our professional development will focus on work to continue the Leader in Me program and our health action plan,” Pinkoski said.

“We are focusing on nutrition and mental health and we will do this in consultation with Alberta Health Services and our school division wellness co-ordinator.”

Started last year, the Leader in Me program under Steven Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People has been captured by the whole school, she said.

“Every classroom, every student and all staff members are part of this incredible process,” Pinkoski said.

“Because we have no staff changes, we can continue to grow and develop.

“As our mission statement says, we are nurturing faith family empowering individuals to discover their God-given gifts to benefit ourselves, our communities and the world.”

Last week, staff completed development training with the school division and focused on integrity, self-esteem and self-worth for students.”
