Terry Fox Totals
We would like to thank all of the students, families, supporters and staff and who took part in our school's Terry Fox fund raiser and school run this year. The Terry Fox foundation is an "organization that still embodies the values of its founder; that funds cancer research projects that are innovative and daring; that has become an important part of community-building and fellowship" and your contributions have helped.
Our school raised just over $1700 this year which will help the foundation with their research projects. Way to go everyone!
Please remember to submit your Terry Fox Run/Walk/Bike selfies to the Student Guide Course.
Thanks again to those who participated.

- CMHA's Mental Health Week
At the Virtual Learning Centre, we fully support Canadian Mental Health Association's Mental Health Awareness Week.
Mental health is about more than mental illness
It’s more than being happy all the time. It’s about feeling good about who you are, having balance in your life, and managing life’s highs and lows. Everyone deserves to feel well, whatever their mental health experience. And we all need a support system to lean on. (Source: CMHA https://mentalhealthweek.ca )
