Community Health Resources and Services
SHS has a new list of Community Health Resources and Services on the school website. If any student would like to know more about any of these resources or services or would like help to get connected to any of them, I would be very happy to help. My name is Lynda. I am your Youth Health Centre Coordinator. I am also a Public Health Nurse. I am located in Room 325 and I welcome you to drop in.
World Mental Health Day
Today is World Mental Health Day. There will be lots of information in the lobby at lunch time. As well green ribbons will be passed out.


Thank you to the administration for replacing the microwave in the cafeteria that was needed due to the timer being set for too long and breaking the old one. We have another challenge though. Toilet paper rolls are being removed in the bathroom and used to plug the toilets. We are asking everyone to please be more responsible in keeping our school running and clean.
Green Team
Calling all Kingfishers! Your green team is going plogging on October 18th (weather permitting). What’s plogging?? Plogging is a mix of jogging, but we will be walking, and picking up litter! Please meet us in the lobby at lunch on October 18th if you want to join us!
