Magnanimous Advocates Generating Mental Health Awareness
MAGMA stands for Magnanimous Advocates Generating Mental Health Awareness. The group was created to promote mental health awareness in our school and community, to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health, to disseminate knowledge about stigma and mental health and to help students build healthy relationships and maintain strong mental health. Magma members not only generate awareness and educate others, they also take action to end the stigma! Come join us and help #endthestigma!

SJF GSA (Gender & Sexuality Squad)
We are an anonymous group of students and staff that meet weekly during the school year to socialize, to listen to concerns, and make recommendations to school life as we see issues that need working on. In the past, we have successfully put forward the idea of having gender-free washrooms located in the school. We have a student advisor on the Rainbow Coalition's board of directors. We are all about making SJF a better, more caring, and more respectful world to live in. This year, we want to start working with the feeder schools to strengthen the GSAs in the rest of YK1. The Squad meets Monday at lunch in Room 22.
