In follow up to ALCDSB's commitment to youth engagement and capturing youth voice, the Mental Health Leadership Team was pleased to host students from each of our secondary schools to attend a day of learning and collaboration at the Frink Centre on May 8.

The intention of this day was to facilitate open discussion about current mental health initiatives, needs, and strengths and to identify future directions for partnership between staff and youth within ALCDSB.

The day highlighted the importance of youth voice and engagement in mental health promotion planning at ALCDSB, the foundation for creating a 'Mentally Healthy School,' a discussion of individual school projects and initiatives, and activities promoting the importance of overall health and well-being.

Thank you to all of the students and staff who participated!

 

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
