In February 2019 we developed the theme “Well Being – Being Well” which proved to be both timely and very well received by the English-speaking Educational Community, so much so that LCEEQ decided to expand the theme in February 2020.
The focus continues on both physical and mental health which addresses the ever-increasing pressures on educators and students at all levels in our fast-paced society. The range of potential topics is broad, inviting presentations in so many areas:
- Taking mental health to school
- Teacher wellness
- Students with exceptionalities
- Making healthy choices in our daily lives
- Promoting play, relaxation, personal time
- Cultivating well-being in the classroom
- Prioritizing your well-being
- The importance of movement
- Social wellness
- Building resilient students
- Social and emotional learning and well-being
- The need for physical activity
- Avoiding burnout
- Fostering a work/life balance
- Identifying warning signs of issues in students and colleagues
- The influence of nutrition and exercise
- Impact of bullying
- Influences of social media
These are but a few suggestions of the many possibilities that the Selection Committee will consider.
