Be Safe is a new mobile app designed to help support teens and young adults making decisions in crisis.  An official launch and demonstration was recently held at the Catholic Education Centre in Wallaceburg.  Be Safe has been purchased jointly by the St. Clair Catholic and Lambton Kent district school boards, along with the Canadian Mental Health Association.  It is free to all Android and iPhone users.

“These on-line resources are a reflection of the way young people communicate in the digital world of the 21st Century,” says Dan Parr, Director of Education for the St. Clair Catholic District School Board.  “We know this app will be a reliable resource to help young people in crisis.”

“This is another important tool we can make available to our young people to help keep them safe and allow them to support others, says Jim Costello, Director of Education for the Lambton Kent District School Board.

“The mental health of youth is a priority for all of us; CMHA Lambton Kent is pleased to partner with both boards of education to ‎bring this innovative project to our youth” says Alan Stevenson, Chief Executive Officer  for the Canadian Mental Health Association Lambton Kent.

Be Safe was developed by mindyourmind, an award-winning, not-for-profit mental health program that engages youth, young adults and the professionals who serve them, to co-develop reliable and relevant resources.  The goal of mindyourmind is to inspire youth to reach out, get help and give help.

The Be Safe app allows users to make a safety plan and gives them options for getting help by understanding how to ask for help and empowering them to reach out safely.  It also informs them about resources in Chatham-Kent and Sarnia-Lambton.

The Noelle’s Gift foundation is once again donating a total of $45,000 to the St. Clair Catholic and Lambton Kent district school boards to support students and families in need.

“We are indeed blessed and deeply grateful to receive this tremendous donation of funds to support our students and their families,” says Dan Parr, Director of Education with the St. Clair Catholic District School Board.  “Through its caring and continuous support of children in need, the foundation has truly found a fitting way to honour the life and work of Noelle Paquette.”

“Principals continue to share stories of the difference Noelle’s Gift has made to so many of our students and how grateful and touched parents are to receive this support,” says Jim Costello, Director of Education for the Lambton Kent District School Board. “The Lambton Kent District School Board accepts this donation on behalf of all the children in our school community and thanks the Foundation for this gift.”

The $45,000 donation from the Noelle’s Gift charitable fund is shared among the two school boards, to support students who are in need.  Funds are used to purchase eyeglasses, clothing, food, medicine and medical equipment – anything that is needed to help children and families in crisis.

The funds from Noelle’s Gift are dispersed independently through the two school boards.  Principals make application whenever a child is in need.  Requests for funds are processed quickly, to get help to families as soon as possible.

The Noelle’s Gift charitable fund was established in memory of Noelle Paquette, a former Kindergarten teacher with St. Clair Catholic, who passed away in January 2013.

In the photo above, Dan Parr, Director of Education for St. Clair Catholic (left) and Jim Costello, Director of Education for the Lambton Kent District School Board accept the donation from Jackie Major-Daamen (centre), of the Noelle's Gift Foundation.

Chromebook Presentation Sept 2015More than a hundred elementary and secondary teachers with the St. Clair Catholic District School Board are currently participating in a voluntary professional development course about teaching and learning in the digital age.

“This is an exciting on-line course that has been designed and written by teachers for teachers,” says Deb Crawford, Superintendent of Education.

“The activities included in the modules are based on current research in 21st Century learning and teaching and are tied directly to the Board’s strategic plan, which is to provide our students with learning experiences that are reflective of the digital age in which we live,” says Mrs. Crawford.

Chromebook Presentation Oct 2015The course consists of eight modules – five mandatory and three based on personal interest.  The professional development sessions are voluntary and are completed on the teachers’ own time.

“This course requires a personal time commitment from our staff,” says Mrs. Crawford.  “The interest that we have seen is a demonstration of the professional dedication to learning and teaching on the part of our teachers.”

The Board has offered to those teachers who have completed the first three mandatory modules, a Samsung Chromebook, for use in the classroom and at home, for as long as they are employees of the Board.

So far, 36 staff members have received their Chromebooks; and a total of 245 on-line modules have been completed.
