Hope Honour and Heroes 3rd Annual Mental Health Walk will take place on Saturday, May 5

 

The third “Hope, Honour, and Heroes” Annual Mental Health Walk will take place on Saturday, May 5th at Macdonald School in Stockholm. This year the event has partnered with the Canadian Mental Health Association, with proceeds going to the CMHA Regina Branch as well as Macdonald School’s Mental Health Initiatives.

Mental illness is no joke, and it is far more prevalent than society likes to admit. According to the event’s website, “Mental Illnesses are surprisingly common in children and youth. Unfortunately, only one in five kids and teens in Canada who need mental health treatment can get it. There are many reasons for this. Parents and caregivers can have mixed feelings about getting their children help for their mental illness. They may worry about being blamed for their child’s change in behaviour, or they worry about what treatments may be tried. Mental illnesses can be frightening, and many people worry what others will think if they talk about their experiences. The good news is that mental illnesses can be treated successfully, and early treatment can help reduce the impact of a mental illness on your child’s life.”

NVCU school donation will go towards Chromebooks

North Valley Credit Union’s Stockholm branch recently donated $1000 to Macdonald school. The funds will go towards purchasing Chromebooks for the grade 7 to 9 students. Below is the thank you note from Reg Leidl, Principal of the school.

“The students and staff of Macdonald School would like to thank the Stockholm branch of the North Valley Credit Union for their very generous donation of $1000.00. This money will be used to purchase Chromebooks for the grade 7 – 9 students in the school. The students are part of a distributed learning math pilot project being undertaken by the school and the Good Spirit School Division. This donation helps ensure that all students in grade 7 – 9 will have their own piece of technology to support their learning. Thank you so much!”
