Last Friday, staff and students from Erskine School, Byemoor School, Gus Wetter School in Castor and William E. Hay Composite High School in Stettler, along with Alberta Health Services health promotion facilitator Stacie Pederson, attended the Healthy Active School Symposium at Our Lady of Mount Pleasant School in Camrose.
“The event was organized by Ever Active Schools, whose goal is to engage and empower student leadership to create a healthy school environment,” said HEaRT project co-ordinator Devon McMann.
“There were representatives from many different schools and school divisions. Attendees had the opportunity to attend different health and wellness sessions led by students. The SADD group from William E. Hay was one of the presenters and the PLAY group from Erskine School presented on how to have students lead games on the playground. Both groups did an exceptional job and were very well-received.”
