15 Reasons to Live

Mrs. Spellman Cann , Mr. Damen , Mrs. Luong (your school counsellors) and the Mental Health Wellness team are happy to invite you to a great opportunity and event.

The Mental Wellness team Living Aware, Living Informed, Living Empowered will be coming up with their own top 10 reasons to live to share with the Bishop Carroll High School Community. This project is inspired by both Josh's video (see above) and the Canadian group The Buried Life (see below). TBL are positive young Canadians who go out and cross things off their bucket list by doing the things they want to live for, but a very important part of the process is doing something kind for others.

You can look forward to an interactive morning with social media expert, Dr. Alec Couros who is a professor of educational technology and media and the Coordinator of Information and Communications Technology at the Faculty of Education, University of Regina.

This symposium will focus on mental health and wellness using the networked learning experiences of Dr. Couros. Dr. Couros has given hundreds of workshops and presentations, nationally and internationally, on topics such as openness in education, social/networked learning, instructional design, digital citizenship, and critical media literacy.


We are extremely fortunate to have many students at Bishop Carroll who go out into the world to make it a better place on purpose. Please join us as we continue the dialogue. Post Positively #empowerBCHS .
