Wellness Works: This October is about building relationships

October 10, 2023

GUELPH, ON – As we settle into October students and staff have had an opportunity to meet and connect with familiar and new peers, teaching staff and school/board team members. It is such an important part of starting the year off well. Relationships and connection are the underpinnings of learning. With relationships, we build a sense of connection and community. As we become a part of a community, we feel we belong. With belonging comes spaces and environments that elevate learning opportunities.

And finally, but of equal importance, is to recognize the vital relationship that exists between families, guardians and caregivers with the school teams. We all have a part to play in our children and youth’s wellbeing and we are most effective when we can join together to support and wrap around together.
