RamCare

RamCare is a dedicated group of teachers and students that promotes self-compassion and mindfulness in the school in order to improve resiliency, decrease stress and anxiety and provide outlets for self care.

In 2016, RamCare brought informative modules to homeroom classes once a month, started Furry Fridays where therapy dogs came into the school for a visit, as well as offered a health and wellness week where informative sessions and self care activities were presented to the students.

This year, with the creation of the Zen Den, the group hopes to offer a calm and inviting alternate space in the school where self care can be practised on a regular basis. The following activities will be offered in the Zen Den and in the auditorium in 2017:

  • Board games and cards
  • Reading
  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Wooly Rams (knitting and crochet)
  • Gratitude wall

  • Furry Fridays (therapy dog visit)

Wooly Rams

Woolly Rams meets weekly on Fridays at lunch in the ZenDen. Students
gather in a relaxed environment to learn how to knit alongside an
encouraging group of students from all grades. Knitting is a craft
that is easily learned and can develop into a creative and challenging
life-long pursuit. Students gain a real sense of competency and
accomplishment as they create their own fashion items from a simple
strand of yarn. Knitting is a fantastic stress reliever, proven to
help with emotional issues such as anxiety, depression,
obsessive-compulsive tendencies and other mental health challenges.
Any student is welcome to drop in, borrow a pair of needles and a ball
of yarn, and learn a new skill. Staff advisor Mrs. van Leeuwen is
always excited to share her favourite hobby and demonstrate a new
technique.
