Kipling CI Hosts First Wellness Day

Wednesday, March 22, 2017
Categories: Great Things, Happenings @ TDSB, School Web Stories

Healthy living, physical activity, and social, emotional and personal wellness are important components of student success and achievement. Indeed, student well-being is one of three key foci for the TDSB, along with achievement and equity, which are all inextricably linked.

Kipling CI (KCI) recently demonstrated this commitment as it hosted its first school-wide Wellness Day for all grade 9 and 10 students. “The event was initiated by staff and student wellness leaders who wanted a dedicated day to address various issues and concerns identified by students,” said KCI Assistant Curriculum Leader of Student Services Maharukh Kootar, who hopes to replicate the event regularly.

Kootar said that students rotated through a series of workshops, such as Healthy Eating and Physical Activity, Meditation and Relaxation, Sleep and the Teenage Brain, Stress and Teenagers, Healthy Relationships, Teens and Social Media, and Body Image and Self Love. Workshops were presented by Etobicoke Children’s Center,  TDSB Social Work, school-based staff and students. Student leaders provided mentorship and support in the workshops.

Participants were also treated to a healthy lunch provided by a community-based restaurant, and at the end of the day received important information packages about various services and resources to access.
