On Thursday May 9th, students at École secondaire Cochrane High School (ESCHS) enjoyed a Mental Health Activity Day focused on developing well-being skills in honour of Mental Health Awareness Week. 

Activities included: tie dying facilitated by our Jack Chapter, volleyball & basketball, board games, mindful colouring, cooking, nail painting and hair styling facilitated by local hair stylists, and a cultural activity focused on the clan systems and seven grandfather teachings facilitated by the Iininew Friendship Centre. Following the activities the school community enjoyed a BBQ lunch prepared by staff members.
