Me Day at St. Lorenzo Ruiz Elementary School

In early February, we had the privilege of speaking at St. Lorenzo Ruiz Elementary School in Saskatoon. They organized and hosted a “Me Day” designed in connection to a personalized learning project for the Grade 8 students.

The students identified health issues of concern for kids in their community, such as gossiping, bullying, residential schools, sleep deprivation, divorce, body image, racism, procrastination, abuse, alcoholism, grief, self-esteem, and sexuality. Based on those issues, they created presentations, “TED” style talks, art performances and other activities to help students in the school learn and understand the topics.

Danielle Bachart, Safety Advisor, gave a presentation on Mental Health & Anxiety to 68, Grade 8 students. Several students spoke about how the Mental Health presentation helped to reassure and ease some of their anxieties and that it was nice to know they were not alone – that anxiety is normal.

To start off the Me Day event, Danielle presented to over 200 Grade 5 to 8 students in the school, parents and other attendees about anxiety.  She included some statistics and ways everyone can learn to cope with the stressors in their lives.

Did you know that we offer a Mental Health presentation? It has been developed to meet some of the school’s education curriculum requirements. You can find out more about the Mental Health presentation here!

    Thanks for your publiction. Another thing is that being a photographer will involve not only problem in recording award-winning photographs and also hardships in getting the best digital camera suited to your requirements and most especially problems in maintaining the caliber of your camera. It is very genuine and apparent for those photography lovers that are into capturing the actual nature’s eye-catching scenes : the mountains, the forests, the particular wild or the seas. Visiting these amazing places unquestionably requires a digital camera that can meet the wild’s hard natural environment.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.

    Thanks for the post. My partner and i have continually observed that almost all people are eager to lose weight when they wish to appear slim as well as attractive. However, they do not always realize that there are many benefits for losing weight in addition. Doctors state that overweight people are afflicted by a variety of conditions that can be directly attributed to their particular excess weight. Fortunately that people that are overweight in addition to suffering from various diseases are able to reduce the severity of their particular illnesses through losing weight. You possibly can see a gradual but noted improvement with health while even a small amount of losing weight is attained.

It was actually a very intimidating crisis in my position, but discovering the specialized approach you treated the issue made me to cry over joy. I am thankful for your support and then trust you really know what an amazing job that you are putting in instructing many people using your site. I’m certain you’ve never come across any of us.

    Navigating the line between what we’d decide together,Jordan and what was up to me,Jordan became a new challenge in our relationship. We went together to appointments,Jordan but she let me do the talking and the decision making. She told me it was my body,Jordan my future,Jordan and she’d be there beside me no matter what I did. I was grateful,Jordan but I mourned a world in which we’d have the time to figure out what we would want together,Jordan to be able to fully have her on my team.
