TREE OF WARMTH

École Fairview is once again entering the JCI Brantford Santa Claus Parade 2014 that is being held on Saturday, November 29th, 2014.

This year marks 40 years the JCI Brantford Santa Claus Parade and the theme for this year is "40 Years of Christmas: 1974-2014".

École Fairview’s theme will be “Christmas Movies” throughout the decades. Each class will recreate a “movie cover” for a particular Christmas decade that will be in the parade.

Along with the movie covers the school will also have a “Tree of Warmth” in the parade. We are inviting families to bring in your new scarves, gloves, and toques to École Fairview so we can decorate our Tree of Warmth for the parade. All of the winter items

Thank you to those families who have already donated hats and mitts. We will be collecting until Friday, November 28th, 2014.

ONTARIO CHILD HEALTH STUDY/SCHOOL MENTAL HEALTH SURVEYS

Make a difference in the lives of children and youth and say 'yes' to participate in the 2014 Ontario Child Health Study and School Mental Health Surveys.

The 1983 Ontario Child Health Study told us that 1 in 5 children and youth experienced serious mental health challenges. This estimate is outdated as is much of what we know about child and youth mental health in Ontario. The 2014 Ontario Child Health Study will tell us about the mental health status and needs of children and youth living in Ontario today.

From October 2014 to May 2015, Statistics Canada will be inviting 7,000 families with children aged 4 -17 years to complete an interview in their home. At the same time, McMaster researchers will be conducting School Mental Health Surveys in 240 Ontario schools to help us learn new ways of promoting and addressing student mental health needs.

Together, these studies will be the first of their kind in Canada to examine the influence of family, community and school environments on child and youth mental health.

The results will be used to develop programs and services to improve the mental health of young people in Ontario. Results from the 1983 Study were partially responsible for over 3 billion dollars of investment in federal and provincial programs and services, resulting in the creation of programmes such as the Ontario Early Years Centres.

Participation in the 1983 Ontario Child Health Study was over 90%. Make sure you are heard in 2014 as well. Let's make our province a better place for children and youth. If invited to participate, please say ‘yes’ to the 2014 Ontario Child Health Study and School Mental Health Surveys. www.ontariochildhealthstudy.ca
