January 24, 2018 - For the month of January, the school staff have been focusing on mental health and managing the stress of exams which begin on January 25, 2018. The staff have tackled stress from all angles of mind, body and soul. There have been yoga sessions, a presentation by Canadian Mental Health and today therapy dogs.

The therapy dogs were brought in to help the students de-stress and smile ahead of exams.

The event was arranged by Christine Guerra, the school librarian with the organization, Magical Paws.

This has become common practice at Universities and in health institutions such as seniors’ homes and even in hospitals.

The dogs were so well received that staff are already toying with the idea of a return in the Spring ahead of exams in June.
