October is National Principals Month

Recognizing a principal by nominating her/him for an ‘Inspire’ award would be an excellent way to celebrate National Principals Month.

The ‘Inspire’ award is one way the Public Schools Branch is using to recognize members of our educational community for the inspirational things they do to help us all experience success and make our schools great places to work and learn.  Anyone can nominate an employee, student, volunteer, parent or community member; and the criterion for nomination is simple – they just need to have inspired others.  To nominate someone, simply take a minute or two to complete the on-line nomination form.  Nominees will receive a small PSB recognition package and a note of thanks for contributing to the PSB community.

Student Well-being Teams Now in Place

Mental health therapists, nurses, counsellors, and outreach workers are now working in schools to support students who are struggling with mental, social and physical health issues.

The first Student Well-being Teams are now in place in the Westisle and Montague families of schools, and others will follow in all families of schools over the next two years.

For more information, please check out this video with provincial coordinator Geoff MacDonald or visit the teams’ new website.
