Safe Schools Community Forum, "Wellness Today: Building Healthy Futures"

As part of our commitment to keep our schools safe, St. James-Assiniboia School Division hosts a Safe Schools Forum once every two years.

On Wednesday, April 12, our Division teamed up with local organizations to present the 2017 Safe Schools Forum "Wellness Today: Building Healthy Futures." The event focused on breaking down the broad spectrum of wellness to include elements of mental, physical, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. 

We would like to thank our students for their participation and enthusiasm this year. Early, Middle and Senior Years students contributed to the success of the evening by helping us raise awareness and celebrate the many wellness initiatives happening within our schools. Thank you as well to the staff, students, families and community members who attended and the local organizations who took part, including: YMCA, Camp Manitou, Canadian Mental Health Association, Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, True North Youth Foundation and Sundragon Studios. 

At the event, the following schools received top recognitions for their Wellness-themed video projects:

Early Years 
Ecole Assiniboine
Ecole Bannatyne
Lakewood School

Middle Years 
Hedges Middle School

Senior Years

All of the student projects were creative, inspiring and well delivered. Great job to everyone involved!
