Congratulations St. Gabriel in being certified as an Ophea Healthy School!
For the second year in a row St. Gabriel school has achieved silver status. Ophea Healthy School Certification recognizes and celebrates schools that are promoting and enhancing the health and well-being of students, staff and the community. S.W.A.T. (school wellness action team) students in grade 7 and 8 played a key role in helping our school achieve this certification through promoting health and well-being for our students.
SWAT planned various fun and engaging wellness activities throughout the year including:
· The Great Big Crunch
· Healthy School Survey – obtaining student voice
· Lend a Helping Hand & Pink Shirt Day for Bullying Awareness Week
· Bell Let’s Talk
· Hustle Days- fun movement breaks
· Wellness activities for Mental Health Week
Thank you SWAT, our Child and Youth Counsellor Mrs. Cadet and our Public Health Nurse, Ms. Deras for supporting St. Gabriel and enhancing healthy living and well-being at St. Gabriel!
