CDSBEO welcomes Clara's Big Ride to Cornwall
The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario was pleased to host Clara Hughes at Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School in Cornwall Tuesday afternoon. Students from the school lined the driveway to welcome Hughes upon arrival. Hughes, who has battled depression, spoke to students about her experiences with mental health problems. The six-time Canadian Olympic speed-skating and cycling medalist, who is also the national spokesperson for Bell Let’s Talk, is doing a 110-day national bicycle tour across Canada. The CDSBEO continues to be a leader in mental health awareness through the Empower App, which is used for Bully Reporting, and a partnership Mood Disorders Society of Canada. CDSBEO schools will be hosting events and fundraisers in May to support this cause.
