Join in recognizing three recognition events

The following is from Mandy Savery-Whiteway, Director of Education.

The week of May 5 -9, 2014 is a time to recognize three important events related to students, employees and education.

At Hastings and Prince Edward District School board, we are focused on the AiM System Plan goals of Success for Each Student, Employee Excellence and Community Connections.

EDUCATION WEEK

Education Week is celebrated annually during the first week of May by school boards and school communities throughout Ontario. It is a time for students, employees, parents/guardians and volunteers to celebrate student achievement and well-being. The provincial theme is Achieving Excellence in Education.

CHILDREN’S MENTAL HEALTH WEEK

The first full week of May is recognized as Children’s Mental Health Week. It is a time to increase awareness of the signs of child and youth mental health problems, decrease the stigma, and understand that help is available—and it works.

CHILD AND YOUTH COUNSELLOR APPRECIATION WEEK

This week is also recognized as Child and Youth Counsellor Appreciation Week around the world. It is a time to recognize employees who provide therapeutic interventions for students to promote self-esteem, opportunities to heal and experience positive relationships.

Please join me in recognizing the value of these three important events.
