Constitutional Amendment – Sheryl Woolnough

"I, Cheryl Woolnough, on March 28th, 2019, would like to add a new commission to the constitution. The name of the Commission is. Mental Health and Well-Being. Supportive information is as follows:

Under the previous government, the Ministry of Education put in place an Engagement Paper highlighting a well-being strategy for schools. The aim was to deepen the understanding of well-being in Ontario schools from Kindergarten to Grade 12, alongside effective measures to support the paper. School boards followed, by putting into place, mental health and well-being initiatives to support student success.

Well-being is fundamental to overall student success. Students are better able to learn when they feel safe and welcome at school and have the tools and the motivation to make healthy, active choices, whenever they can. Children and students who have strong relationships and a positive sense of self are most likely to reach their full potential and thrive.” Ministry of Education, 2017

The aim of this commission is to align with current education practices and initiatives to support our students, parents and community members in both areas – mental health and well being."
