Twelve Years of Helping Hands
This year marks the Twelfth year that Grade nine students under the direction of Teacher Crystal Veinot have completed a service learning project. Each year students form groups and raise money for one of our local service groups. This year funds and donations were collected for 12 Baskets Food Bank, The Companion Animal Protection Society, The Salvation Army and Elderdog.
Pictured above are representatives from Elderdog, an organization dedicated to supporting seniors and their dogs. Stydents William Luttmann, Ryan MacIntyre and Ryan Gates had the privilege to present the cheque during a presentation assembly on March 9th at MRHS.
Mental Health First Aid Course
The Kingston Greenwood Mental Health Association (KGMHA) is offering a certification training course in Mental Health First Aid at the Ecolé Rose des Vents school in Greenwood on April 8-9, 2017.
This two day course is highly valued for its capacity to reduce mental health stigma. It also provides individuals with insights and knowledge pertaining to mental health awareness in self and others. Employers believe in training their staff members and the training offers an avenue for people to learn facts, dispel myths and become equipped with knowledge and enhanced communication skills to aid in offering more appropriate dialogue when intervening with others dealing with mental health concerns. With research identifying that one in five youth are experiencing difficulty with their mental health, it is essential for communities to become better informed.
A number of local students (16 years of age and older) have completed training with the Kingston Greenwood Mental Health Association. If you decide to register please pick up a registration form in the MRHS office and mail it along with your $35.00 registration fee to the address listed on the form. With a maximum of 20 seats per training session, the spaces fill quickly. For more information contact KGMHA at 765-3902 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Nova Scotia School Insurance
As you may know the Nova Scotia School Insurance Program (SIP) is the non-profit insurer owned by school boards across Nova Scotia.
Since 1988 we have paid for basic student accident insurance for every student in the Province for school hours and activities.
In previous years we sent all schools flyers to give to each student providing parents and guardians the option to purchase the Gold Plan for 24/7 coverage. This year we would like to promote the Gold Plan only online, in an effort to take the eco-friendly route, reduce costs and staff time.
