Bell Let’s Talk Day
As you’ve probably heard from your son/daughter(s), or in the media, Bell Let’s Talk day is coming up this Wednesday, January 31st!!
Bell Let’s Talk day is a day dedicated to help raise mental health awareness and break the stigma that follows it.
There will be a school wide assembly and walk afterwards (physical activity makes you happier and decreases your chances of having a mental illness). On Friday, February 2nd we will have a “break-a-rule day”. There will be a set of rules students are able to “break”, teacher dependent (ex: wear a hat, chew gum). In order to break these rules each student needs to bring in a loonie or toonie for each rule any student wants to break. Every dollar that students bring in will be donated to a mental health charity/organization.
Let’s end the stigma of mental illness!
Thank you for your support!
Your student leaders,
Serenity and Anna
