Wellness Wednesday Tip - Focus

JUNE 2, 2021 -- One task at a time!

When our to-do lists are long, we can become overwhelmed and think that multitasking is the way forward. For most people, however, multitasking actually wastes more time, is more distracting and contributes to feelings of unhappiness at work.

By focusing on one task at a time, you will find that you can actually complete a task quicker, better and with less energy!

Planning for Grade 12 Grads

MAY 7, 2021 -- Over the past few months, Regina Public Schools staff have been anticipating the end of the school year and graduation ceremonies for our Grade 12 students.

We are very pleased to be in a position to share that we have worked on a partnership with Regina Exhibition Association Limited and have some tentative options in place to allow each of our Grade 12 graduates, and a limited number of guests, to participate in a graduation ceremony.

It is our hope that each high school will celebrate their Grade 12 graduation at Mosaic Stadium.

Unfortunately, the current Government guidelines posted on April 28,2021, limit outdoor graduations to a maximum of 30 guests.
