Day #1 - Peace Within Myself 
In our school board, this week is devoted to Bullying Awareness. St. Mary's has chosen to take a positive spin on this, and is having "Peace Week". 

Each day of Peace Week (November 14-18) has a theme, and today's was "Peace Within Myself". The object of some of the lessons today was to have students think about what places, activities and thoughts make them feel good about themselves and their lives. Self-esteem makes kids (and adults, too) positive and resilient - able to persevere through the challenges that life is sure to send our way.

One of the highlights of the day was receiving a set of slides on inner peace from Mrs. Labrecque-Mireault's class. I found it very interesting that many of the kids cited time alone with a family member as their go-to for feeling great about themselves.

Tomorrow, we will see how they feel about the theme of "Peace Within My Close Circle of Friends and Family".
