Anyone can feel stressed or anxious at some point in their life, even children. The “always on” generation is growing up in a fast-paced world with ubiquitous technology and rising social and academic expectations. Anxiety is the most prevalent mental health issue among Canadian children, and parents who want to address concerns about their child’s well-being may not know where to begin or how to encourage a healthy dialogue.

At Kells Academy, we share the belief that investing in the future means investing in our children first. We recently hosted an interactive workshop with psychotherapist and educational consultant director Mona Segal to talk to parents about how to best address and manage anxiety in children.

On September 21st, students and staff came together at Kells Academy to participate in the International Peace Day Assembly and celebrate with messages of compassion, collaboration, and goodwill. During the assembly, our students recited the Kells Peace Pledge, and each class made their own presentation about inspiring and encouraging the idea of peace around the world.

After the assemblies, students participated in the Pinwheels for Peace Project, which featured personalized pinwheels of their own design planted outside as a visual representation of peace. The Spirit Committee also got to work and put the finishing touches on a new Buddy Bench, which gives our students a place to sit at recess if they find themselves in need of a buddy to keep them company.
