With Clearview Public Schools ending the past year with a student-led wellness conference, the focus is still very much on the health and wellness of its staff and students this year too.

The latest edition of “Leaders & Learners” – a publication by the Canadian Association of School System Administrators – includes an article which highlights the health and wellness initiatives in Clearview.

Written and submitted by Brenda MacDonald, Deputy Superintendent of Clearview Public Schools, the theme for the edition was “Healthy Students, Healthy Communities, Healthy Futures,” something that Clearview has been promoting zealously this past year.

“Although the staff and student health and wellness initiatives are in their infancy, we have seen immediate and positive results,” MacDonald stated in the article. “Employees and students have noticed that Clearview is showing concern for their health and well-being. There is a genuine appreciation for the small incentives and self-directed and school-focused projects.”

Clearview Public Schools has been implementing strategies to support both staff and students.

According to MacDonald, this momentum was possible because of the committed members of the board of trustees, Alberta Health Services, Alberta School Employee Benefit Plan coordinators, and many Central Office representatives, all of whom have a strong desire to positively impact staff and students in the area of health and wellness, through the guidance of the Health and Wellness Committee.

“Clearview’s wellness article recognizes and celebrates our collective effort to ensure our students and staff are healthy,” said Superintendent Peter Barron. “Kudos to Brenda and the committee for their hard work and dedication.”
