St. David School Proudly Supports Student Well Being Through Tae Kwon Do Lessons

St. David Catholic School Principal, Dawn Wemigwans, CCAC Mental Health & Addictions Nurse and Tae Kwon Do Instructor, Roland Dutrisac and St. David Vice Principal, Megan Murphy proudly show off their "broken boards" at the school's year end Tae Kwon Do celebration.

June 9, 2015 - St. David Catholic Elementary School continues to offer grades 3 - 5 students Tae Kwon Do lessons every Monday for an hour at lunch. The program focus remains the 5 tenets that Tae Kwon Do practitioners live their lives by:
Self Control
Indomitable Spirit

The Sudbury Catholic District School Board's CCAC Health Nurse, Roland Dutrisac, uses Tae Kwon Do as an effective strategy to encourage students to live healthy lives through physical activity as well as learn such important skills as: focus, concentration, discipline, self control and perseverance. The Tae Kwon Do program also stresses the importance of confidence and how to deal with conflict in a proactive manner.

Next year, the school will move from its original location on Jean Street to a brand new home at 459 Frood Road. The program has seen such success that it will continue to be offered at the new location. The school hopes all returning students and new registrants will continue to take advantage of this inter disciplinary opportunity. The school would also like to take this time to thank Mr. Roland Dutrisac for his wonderful contribution to the St. David School community!
