During these unprecedented times the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District (NLESD) has continued to provide services and resources that assist students in managing their mental health and wellness while classes are suspended.
On April 7th, NLESD launched the telephone counselling component of its Volunteer Guidance Services Initiative. This service has seen both parents and students reach out to our team for support in navigating through these challenging times.
To expand upon this initiative, our team of volunteer school guidance counselors will be providing further support through online Social Emotional Learning Sessions. These will be facilitated using Google Meet. The sessions will be live events open to all students. To access these SEL sessions, students must log in to their NLESD Google account.
These Social and Emotional Learning events are not counselling sessions rather they are live group gatherings for the purpose of promoting positive mental health and wellbeing. A schedule of upcoming fun/helpful sessions will be posted on the Well-Being section of the Learning at Home website at https://learningathome.nlesd.ca/well-being/guidance-services so that users can easily view presentation times, obtain session information, and join as they wish.
First live session is Tuesday May 12th, 11:00 am (NST)
