Bell Let’s Talk at Sudbury Catholic Schools

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. 

CANCELLED SCHOOL BUS ROUTES

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.

Join Us For Our Webinar – Coping With Stress!

STRESS! We all experience it. 

That’s why Sudbury Catholic Schools is pleased to invite you to register for our upcoming wellness webinar in January. At this webinar, two outstanding guest presenters will tackle this topic and provide coping strategies for dealing with stress. 

WHEN: WEDNESDAY JANUARY 19 AT 5:30 PM

More Information: 

Alina Rukkila MSW, RSW and Jessie Jones CYW will lead us through an engaging session on dealing with the different types of stress and provide helpful strategies and tips we can incorporate to help us manage it when it happens. 

We all know that not all types of stress are bad. Good types of stress can help you focus, ensure you meet your daily challenges, and encourage you to reach specific goals you have for yourself. However, it’s essential to understand the difference between good and harmful types of stress. Over time, a continued strain on the body put on from stress can get the best of you. It’s paramount to identify the causes of daily stress and manage the intensity of these feelings. By knowing healthy coping strategies, we can enjoy life and learn happily.  

Sudbury Catholic Students in grades 7-12 join Skills Ontario’s Discovery Day

Over 250 Sudbury Catholic Students in grades 7-12 joined Skills Ontario’s Discovery Day to learn about the incredible career opportunities that exist in skilled trades and technologies. Through the virtual  conference,  students were able to visit exhibitor booths and hear from local industry, educational and community service provider experts about careers, pathways and government incentives. 

Kent MacNeill Grade 7 & 8 teacher at St. James Catholic Elementary school shared, “I feel that it’s important to engage students with the trades at an early age so that they may choose courses and take advantage of programs like OYAP.  As a student at Manitouwadge High School, I was fortunate enough to be able to take Co-Op with the ambulance service and that led me to obtain certification and be employed at the age 18 as a part-time paramedic”.

Dan Levecque, OYAP and COOP coordinator for Sudbury Catholic Schools, was one of the education panelists who explained the benefits of employment in the skilled trades, as well as the variety of educational programs at Sudbury Catholic that prepare our students for their career destinations.

Hour of Code Family Night Tuesday December 7 at 7pm – Getting Loopy

Next week (Dec. 6-12) is Computer Science Education Week!

Join Sudbury Catholic District School Board in our Hour of Code Family Night happening on Tuesday, Dec. 7.

Families, you will require a device (laptop, tablet or cell phone) to watch the presentation and an area of space to dance. So don’t forget your dancing feet!

Visit the Student Hub to register or click here.

What is Hour of Code?

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.

But only a fraction of us are learning how technology works.

That’s why during Computer Science Education Week (December 6-12) our K-12 schools are participating in the Hour of Code. More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Sudbury Catholic District School Board is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to our students, we invite you to participate in our event on Dec. 7th and change the future of education in Sudbury.
