April 24, 2015 - On April 24, St. David Catholic School hosted a "Wellness Day" focusing on supporting students to lead healthy, well-balanced lives. The morning kicked off with motivational student-created videos, acknowledgement of community partners and introductions to the day's wellness workshops. The grade 4-8 student participants were divided into groups and attended two out of six sessions of their choosing. All students participants were given the opportunity to choose which sessions they wanted to attend.

The day consisted of various healthy habit-forming activities and coping strategy workshops which included yoga, outdoor education team building, "What's your Spark", tae kwon do, dance, and healthy cooking options. The school hosted presenters from a number of community agencies within the city including the Sudbury District Health Unit, Better Beginnings-Better Futures, Killarney Outdoor Education Centre and several wonderful student teachers from Laurentian University.

Katie-Ann McLean, grade 8 student at St. David School, described the day as "an opportunity to learn how to relax your mind, body and spirit" .

St. David Catholic School accessed a community grant from Breakfast Club of Canada to host this special day. "For over twenty years, Breakfast Club of Canada has been nourishing children's potential by making sure as many of them as possible have access to a healthy morning meal before school, in an environment that allows their self esteem to grow and flourish". Thank you Breakfast Club of Canada, and Better Beginnings-Better Futures for all that you do for St. David Catholic Elementary School, and so many other schools.
