Welcome to the following guest staff today: Michael Hambly for Class Composition, Donna White for Bethany MacLeod, Dean Lackie for Robert Nicholson, Neil Toombs for Matthew Killeen, Janet MacDougall for Kristina McLane, Wanda Cheverie for Pauline Kelly.

Mental Health Tip of the Week – Pay attention to the physical effects that stress can have on your body which can be short term (such as your heart beating faster, your breathing becomes heavier) and long term (change in weight, change in sleep habits). It is important to pay attention when your body is waving a red flag to tell you that you are stressed. It is a sign that you might need to change something in your life to get back to baseline or a more relaxed state.
