October is the designated Hispanic Heritage Month in Ontario.
The Hispanic community is one of the fastest growing communities in the province, with Ontario being home to more than 400,000 first-second and third-generation Canadians of Hispanic origin. At the Halton Catholic District School Board, our largest newcomer population is Hispanic!
This month, HCDSB recognizes the dynamic community that has made significant contributions to the growth and prosperity of Ontario. Hispanic Heritage Month is an opportunity to remember, celebrate and educate future generations about the outstanding achievements and contributions of Hispanic people in our province, and around the world.
To learn more about how HCDSB is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, please visit the article on our website.
On Wednesday, September 25, 2019, the Halton Catholic District School Board will be marking Rowan’s Law Day to raise awareness about concussions.
What is a Concussion?
A concussion is a brain injury that is caused by a blow to the head, face, neck, or body that can cause a sudden jarring of the head. Even what seems to be a mild bump to the head can be serious.
Research indicates that a concussion can affect a student’s school performance in both cognitive activities (school work) and physical activities (physical education program/interschool activities). Research also indicates that engaging in cognitive and/or physical activities, while a child has a suspected and/or diagnosed concussion, can worsen concussion symptoms and delay the student’s recovery.
What is Rowan’s Law Day?
In May 2013, 17-year-old Rowan Stringer died as the result of head injuries sustained in a game of rugby. In March 2018, the Ontario government passed Rowan’s Law, designed to protect athletes and to educate about the dangers of head injuries.
The health and safety of our students is our priority, and on September 25th, we hope to increase awareness about the dangers of concussions. Together, we can help our students prevent, recognize and respond to concussions.
For more information on our concussion protocol, visit our Board’s website.
