Catholic Education Week and Mental Health Week May 1-5, 2023

Mental Health Week:

Every day, educators and students are exposed to big and small challenges that can contribute to feelings of stress. Educators and students continue to rise to the challenge in innovative and creative ways, connecting and building meaningful relationships with students and families. As the impact of the pandemic continues to evolve, providing opportunities for students to understand how they are impacted by stress, and for explicit skill development will continue to be an essential part of bolstering positive student mental health. As an educator, it is equally important to prioritize your own well-being. There are strategies that we can practice managing our stress and to improve our ability to cope. Learning these skills is an important part of improving and caring for our positive mental health. Mental Health Week provides a great opportunity for practice.

Catholic Education Week:  

This year’s Catholic Education Week theme is, “We are Many, We are One.

Tuesday:                             When we listen / En écoutant

Wednesday:                       When we reflect / En réfléchissant

Thursday:                           When we learn / En apprenant
