We would like to welcome Carolyn Stephen to our staff! Carolyn will be joining us as our Special Education Resource Teacher (SERT). She will also be teaching in both our JK / SK and Grade 1 / 2 classes.
Knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours leading to physical and mental well-being need to be established early and supported consistently at home, school and in the community.
This week is ‘Education Week’ and ‘Mental Health Week’. Apsley students began their week with an assembly in the gym learning and assimilating information about engaging in healthy and fulfilling social behaviours hence investing in their own well-being and that of others.
Some of the ideas we will incorporate into ‘Mental Health Week’ are: yoga, a friendship chain, painting, sharing positive, uplifting messages on our ‘message board’ coupled with morning messages on the morning announcements.
According to the research of Dr. P. Carney and Dr. M. Parr, positive mental health consists of an active lifestyle, resilience and the ‘experience of flourishing’. ‘Experience of flourishing’ means having positive emotions and relationships, as well as a sense of connection, purpose and accomplishment.
Staff at Apsley Central P.S. support our students in identifying and empathizing with diverse feelings and emotions and self-regulation. We recognize the importance of enhancing students’ strengths and proving opportunities throughout the day for them to participate in meaningful physical activity. Our Kawartha Pine Ridge vision statement tells us that KPR students will succeed in a caring environment that supports mental health for all.
