Building Belonging, Building Resilience.

Our inquiry question was:

“How is it feasible to promote mental well-being through all environments that promote student learning, health, and success? How does mental well-being impact the ‘whole child’?”

We began this inquiry by working together with our school counsellor to select resources that teachers could use school-wide to promote positive mental well-being. We decided to focus on the “Kids in the Know” resource for our grade 4-7 students which focuses on personal safety. This resource was available in French and English which was an advantage for our dual track school.
