May820241On Wednesday May 8, Norwell District Secondary School welcomed motivational speaker, Paulie O’Byrne in recognition of Mental Health Education and Awareness week. Our speaker is Paulie O’Byrne, who for the 2023/2024 season was hired as the first and only Mental Health Specialist in the Canadian Hockey League working solely with the London Knights, who are currently in the Western Conference Finals against the Saginaw Spirit.  Paulie shared his story of tenacity, resilience and determination with his mental health, and spoke about mental wellness strategies and coping tools. Paulie brings humour to what would normally be a tragic story as he focuses on the solutions that helped him persevere. An inspiring story that resonated with many of our staff and students.May820242
