today was a special day here- Craig Heisinger the assistant general manager of the Winnipeg jets came to give a presentation on project11- Project 11 is inspired and created in honor of # 11, Rick Rypien, former player of the Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose. Thanks for helping us in Churchill end the stigma of mental health. 🏒💪🏻✨ #project11 @project11wellness
Big thanks to @manitobamoose @ericcomrie and @nickerdiles for coming by #KentRoad School to talk about feelings and #project11 with students; the Moose & students also did some yoga and mindfulness exercises. #winnipegsd @nhljets #BreakTheSilence
Our classroom has the privilege of being a part of the @project11wellness @tnyouthfdn pilot Project 11 for early years k-4.
Project 11 is an engaging cross-curricular prevention program targeting Manitoba’s English Language Arts and Physical Education/Health Education outcomes. Weekly lessons and daily activities have been designed to help support students and teachers in bringing mental health awareness, along with positive coping skills into their lives.
This amazing program was developed by teachers, for teachers. Honouring the life of Rick Rypien, Project 11 was launched in 2012. Rypien was a former Manitoba Moose player (who was a Rookie with my brother, @brett_skinner 🏒) and contracted Winnipeg Jets player who sadly passed just prior to the inaugural Jets season in Winnipeg. Picking up on Rypien’s desire to help youth dealing with mental health issues, Project 11 was launched.
Today I learned more about this program and I’m so excited to share this program with my students, it is an excellent opportunity for #ohthisclassroomglows to grow together as ambassadors for Mental Health Awareness. Beginning to develop these coping strategies at a young age will benefit them greatly as they grow through this crazy thing called life.
We will begin our pilot either October 15th or in February. TBD. #project11#mentalhealthmatters#mindfulness @winnipegsd
“Get It Together. That was the first song of her’s that I came across on YouTube and was hooked instantly. Had it on repeat for a week and ever since it made me want to do a piece of Jorja.” - Artist @supreme_tho on his illustration of Jorja. Swipe for progress 🎨
We had some sectionals last night, and everyone is on track and ready to go! 😁 The choir has a beautiful sound and so excited to show everyone what we have been working on. #whatchthisspace for info coming up about how to get your seat to see the Project 11 concert!
