Students from Blyth Academy London and Blyth Academy Mississauga attended Globeducate’s annual Student Leadership Summit hosted for three days in October. The event brought two senior students from 23 schools together for a three-day, online symposium. Students from Blyth Academy as well as students in Europe and India joined the event – the first time it was held virtually rather than at Stonar in England – to develop their leadership skills, both in theory and practice.

Today, on the National Day of Remembrance for Truth and Reconciliation, students and staff across our campuses are participating in activities to honour those that survived and those that were lost as a result of the residential school system, their families, and communities. We believe that engagement, empowerment and understanding are the first steps towards furthering reconciliation. With awareness comes education and with education comes the opportunity for action.
As we prepare to return to school in September, Jessica Lewis, Lead Guidance Counsellor at Blyth Academy Mississauga, who has a Master of Education in Counselling Psychology, sat down with Danielle Michaud of Breakfast Television to talk about ways to help children deal with their mental health.

With everything they’ve been through in the last year, are you wondering how you can get your child back on track, engaged and enthusiastic about next school year?
We’re super excited to join YMC, Erica Ehm and several expert panelists for a candid conversation on exactly this.
“He’s a great teacher,” says Lauren Enright of her chemistry instructor, Mr. Kearney. “He makes jokes to keep the class interested and engaged. A lot of the concepts in chemistry can be a little bit tricky to wrap your mind around. He does a really good job of explaining, and clearing up any questions we have.” She likes her calculus teacher as well. “She’s awesome,” she says. “[She talks] about how when she learned it she thought it was so fun. Like new puzzles that you get to solve and then feel so fulfilled after.”
The inclusion of extracurricular activities as part of school programming for students has always been important, but I would argue that it has never been more important. Research shows the positive effects of extracurricular participation upon students’ socioemotional behaviour, peer belonging, and academic achievement. Let’s face it, whether we like it or understand it, we live in a world where teenagers are spending much of their spare time online (whether gaming, using social media or browsing the web).
Blyth Academy is known for many excellent educational initiatives—small class sizes, creative school buildings, academic programs curated for elementary, middle and high school, and one-on-one individualized learning.
Every year, Globeducate’s group of 50 international private schools take part in the Globeducate Global Arts Awards. This year, the Awards honour those students that showed creativity in interpreting this year’s theme, Change.
