Family School Wellness

The Family School Wellness Program (FSW) is an important part of our healthy Chinook’s Edge school community. The FSW program’s focus is providing support to students facing social emotional difficulties at school.

Together with students and parents, our team can support information and referrals, student and/or family support, 1:1 short term support to students and parents, groups aimed at student growth, and help for families seeking external agency support. The FSW program is a voluntary program which requires parental/guardian consent for 1:1 support. We value and seek parental involvement and work as part of a multidisciplinary school team to provide school based support for children and families. 

The Family School Wellness Program is proud to work in partnership with and receive funding from Family Community and Support Services in the municipalities of Red Deer & District, Mountainview County, Innisfail, Olds and Didsbury.

To discuss how our FSW program can support your child and/or family, please contact the FSW Worker in your child’s school. 

The Family School Wellness Worker at École Deer Meadow is Angie Durant, who can be reached at 403-556-1003 and

The Clinical Team Lead for the FSW program in Chinook’s Edge is Angela Gurski, under the direction of Associate Superintendent of System Services, Karyn Barber
