On Thursday May 18, 2017 Corpus Christi School hosted Project Smile, a stress buster day put on by dedicated St. Ignatius teachers, students, and volunteers. The goal of Project Smile was to develop a set of activities that would assist in alleviating stressors, anxieties, and other pressure that may be experienced by many young students in grades 3, 4, 5, and 6. In addition to teaching coping strategies to the children, the program was intended to help young students understand, recognize and deal with mental health issues. Activities throughout the day included painting, dancing, making individualized stress balls, and even a puppy playroom where students got to spend one on one time with puppies from Paws for Love dog rescue. At each station children received a “gift” to put in their self-soothing kits which later went home with them; helping promote what they had learned throughout the day. TBT Engineering was honoured to sponsor Project Smile for $3,000 in order to help them continue the amazing work they are doing to raise awareness and understanding of mental health issues!
