Student Trustee Update

Trustees received the Student Trustee Report that included:

“At the beginning of October, the wellness kits that the board put together were distributed to all the schools.  The distribution went smoothly at St. John’s College and Holy Trinity school with some minor supply issues at Assumption. The wellness kits were very well received, and the students really liked the components of the kit.  Students continue to use the bags that the wellness kit came in to carry their books.

There has been some communication with Dianne Wdowczyk regarding mental health in our schools.  A virtual forum for mental health is scheduled for Saturday, October 23, 2021.

At Assumption College School they are planning a fall coffee house for the students and are also planning on doing a costume contest for Halloween.  Lots of clubs have started back up including the GSA club, Book Club, Student Council, and STEM club. Assumption is also hosting Club Day on Thursday October 21. 

At Holy Trinity they are planning a Halloween day on October 29.  On this day, students will be participating in a costume contest, door decorating contest, coffee house that follows all Covid physical distancing protocols and the safe distribution of candy to the students.  Holy Trinity students also enjoyed their PD Day at the Norfolk County Fair and Colour Day where they took the grade nines outside and did ice breakers to get them more comfortable with each other.  Holy Trinity is also working on starting back up their Social Justice team.

St. John’s College is organizing a dress down day for Halloween and has set up a sponsorship with Tim Hortons to sell cookies at their school to raise money for breast cancer.  They are also doing a virtual pep rally by broadcasting a video clip that includes sport and club interviews / videos.  The grade nine orientation night was postponed until the spring due to Covid-19 restrictions.  Finally, St. John’s College is organizing a shoe drive for the Indigenous community, and they have started and Eco Club and a student mentorship program.”
