Skate for Mental Health

We are very proud of one of our Birchwood students, Ellen Carragher, a grade seven student who is raising awareness and funds for Mental Health PEI. In lieu of a birthday party, Ellen is organizing a skate at Eastlink Center on Sunday, Feb 11, at 5:30. Please check out her video for more information. Ellen’s Skate for Mental Health Video
Next week as a school, we are also undertaking some initiatives to support Ellen and her cause. Some of these activities will include selling valentine candies, poster contests, “Change for Change” donations and a Fun Hat Day.
These activities will take place Feb 12th to 15th. On Feb 14th, we are asking students to please wear purple in support of Family Violence Prevention Day.
