St. Teresa of Avila School held a Valentine’s Carnival on Wednesday to help students and their families built stronger connections with the school and community.
The event’s goal was to nurture students’ mental health and family wellness.
Families were given a passport to complete 13 activities that highlight developmental assets. Some activities were designed to help elevate mood, stimulate creativity and promote calm.
“The Valentine’s Carnival is a fun way … to build assets so these families can share the love all year round. By including staff volunteers, student ambassadors, Red Deer College students and local support services … the carnival also helps to strengthen relationships within and outside of our school community,” said family school enhancement counsellor Rozalyn Vickery.
