Wellness Institute: Achieving Healthy School Communities

Richmond (Vancouver), British Columbia | April 19–20, 2021
CAD $569.00
 

“Schools are not only places where students acquire academic skills; they are also where children develop many of the social and emotional skills that they need to thrive … They can help students become more resilient in the face of adversity, feel more connected with the people around them, and aim higher in their aspirations for their future. In other words, what happens in school is crucial for well-being.

—The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development*

The latest research overwhelmingly confirms that schools dedicated to the wellness of staff and students become safer, healthier communities where teaching and learning flourish. Now, with the new challenges of remote and blended classrooms, cultivating virtual and in-person learning environments that foster wellness and well-being are more important than ever.

Join us for a two-day event focused on supporting and sustaining wellness schoolwide. Sessions will focus on the well-being of school staff, students, and the greater school community. Participants are encouraged to attend in school or district teams to collectively learn the mindsets, concrete strategies, and practical tools that transform classrooms and schools.

Learning outcomes:

  • Establish habits and routines that enable educators to feel re-engaged and motivated.
  • Understand how teacher motivation, teacher-student relationships, and collaborative teaching all affect an individual’s self-efficacy, career, and professional development.
  • Develop individualized self-care plans for health and happiness.
  • Unpack research-proven and time-tested strategies and techniques to help positively impact the effects of trauma.
  • Reduce personal and classroom stress to promote self- and student growth.
  • Adopt a whole-hearted mindset that will better serve your students, parents, and school while nourishing yourself in the process.
  • Discover your impact on staff, students, and school culture as you progress in your career and gain perspective on creating sustainable change.
  • Build a thriving school community that creates healthy, resilient, and successful students.
