Mental Health Slogan Contest
 

KPR invites students, parents, guardians and staff to suggest short (five words or less), catchy and inclusive slogans for our mental health strategy. Submission deadline is Friday, November 21.

The slogan should reflect three key points: we all need to take care of our mental health; mentally healthy schools promote student success; and, working together, we can raise awareness, reduce stigma, identify problems early, and support every student’s mental health and well-being.

Please send slogan submissions by email to leslie_walberghegan@kprdsb.ca , or by mail to Leslie Walberg-Hegan, Education Centre, 1994 Fisher Dr., Peterborough, ON K9J 6X6

Canadian Apprentice Forum   Why the Trades?
 

When people think about the skilled trades, several immediately spring to mind – electrician, plumber, welder, carpenter, for example. But opportunities in the skilled trades are much more extensive: from hairstylist to cook, painter to landscaper, automotive service technician to crane operator – and so many more. Learn more about the trades.
