This is Superintendent, Gregg Ingersoll inviting you to an exciting event taking place this week.
In Partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association, Atlantic Wellness Centre and Department of Social Development-Wellness Branch, Anglophone East School District is hosting our eighth Annual Mental Health Symposium at Bernice MacNaughton High School on Thursday, May 10th from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The theme, “Empower Your Inner Connection”, encourages our students and our community to find healthy and productive mechanisms for coping with everyday stress and anxiety.
The Symposium is an educational evening featuring presentations from students in each of our nine high schools showcasing the positive mental health initiatives stemming from the Youth Mental Health Summit held in the fall they have made reality in their school communities over the year.
There will also be a Youth Voice component, where students will discuss topics of interest bubbling up in each of their schools with a panel of mental health professionals.
For more information, contact our Community Engagement Coordinator, Heather Stordy at 869-6004.
