Last night, my wife and I attend a fundraiser for CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health). I had the opportunity to speak to Dr. David Goldbloom, the newly appointed Chair of the Mental Health Commission of Canada. You may recall our school was very fortunate back in January to have Dr. Goldbloom lead our Encouraging Dialogue panel on Mental Health and Our Children.
On Tuesday, he was attending a conference on Anti-Stigma and Mental Health in Ottawa. As he came out of the conference, our grade 6 students were getting off their bus. Our students are in Ottawa for four days as part of their end of the year trip. He asked them where they were from. One of our students said, “KCS”. His response was, “You mean that great school in Etobicoke, Kingsway College School?” The student was incredulous that he knew about KCS, but in his words, the “group were obviously very proud of their school.” As Head of School, I love to hear these stories about our students and school.
