Tamil Heritage Month- January
Message from our Trustee Ron Lynn
The Farm’s Funny of the Week:
TIP OF THE WEEK:
When it comes to mental health, every action counts. Helping to end the stigma around mental illness can help create positive change.
It’s a fact: one in five people in Canada will experience a mental health issue or illness in any given year. One of the biggest hurdles for anyone suffering from mental illness is overcoming the stigma. It is the number one reason why two-thirds of those living with a mental illness do not seek help.
This Week at the Farm:
January 27-30- Grade 1-5 Intramurals at recess time
January 27- International Holocaust Remembrance Day
January 29- Beckett Farm Lunar New Year Festival of Learning for Families
- What are the differences between Canada’s and China’s education system?
- How can we help our children succeed on their learning path?
- What do we need to pay attention to as our children grow and develop?
- How can you help your children express their emotions and handle stress?
- How can you deal with your child’s frustrations and where can you ask for help
- 在孩子的成長过程中我們需要注意什広 ?
January 30- VIP Grade 8
January 31- PA Day- NO SCHOOL

Beckett Farm Family Homework!
Dear Beckett Families!
Wednesday, January 29th, is Bell Let’s Talk Day in support of mental health.
Your child should have come home with a postcard sized speech bubble (pictured below and PDF also included). We are tasking you with some family homework!
Have a conversation with your child(ren) about the strategies that you use as a family to support each other’s mental health and well-being, or something that you would like to do or try around mental health and well being. Record in writing or drawing one or more of the strategies on the speech bubble postcard. Please feel free to do the homework in any language that you are comfortable with, do not feel that you have to use English. Postcards can also be anonymous. When your child(ren) return the postcard to school they will get a Let’s Talk prize! Postcards will be displayed in the main foyer.
Please have them returned by January 29th
Many thanks for your support in having family conversations around mental health, well-being and promoting student voice!
