If you are having suicidal thoughts, talking to your friends about how you are feeling can help you feel supported. But it's important to talk to an adult you can trust (e.g., a parent, Elder, teacher, school counsellor, coach), they can help you figure out what steps to take to get the help you need.

At St. Thomas More, we are completely committed to the development of a student’s mind, body and spirit! We are blessed with excellent teachers and instructors and the success of our alumni speaks to the excellent quality of our academic and academy programing. However, as with all educators and parents, we are very concerned about the impact of the last two Covid-19 years on student learning, especially in the areas of literacy and numeracy.
Further, given our understanding in the many benefits of physical activity, including improved mental health, all our students access our exemplary training programs through their academy instructors or physical education and health teachers.
As we all know, Junior High is more than academics. With our wide range of Options (including Recreation Leadership, Cree Language, French, Spanish, Art, Band, Construction, Film, Foods, and Digital design/Robotics), our Leadership & Social Justice initiatives, and our high-achieving Athletic Teams, your child will have ample opportunity to meet new friends and to seek the excellence within!
