Success Story

During our Wellness evening, the Healthy Schools Student Club set up a smoothie bar. They learned about proper hygiene while preparing food for others. They also tried out a few different fruit smoothie recipes and served them to their friends and families. It was a great success!

Success Story

In the month of March, the Healthy School Student club and staff promoted Healthy eating. We were fortunate to have the Public Health Dietitian run a workshop for staff about the new Canada’s Food Guide and how they can support students through lessons. At the end of March we held the Great Big Crunch event. Each class read multiple books on healthy eating and the benefit of apples. Posters were made and announcements were done by the HSSC leading up to the event. The entire school was given an apple, they congregated on the playground and they all took a bite at the same time. A video was taken which was posted on twitter.
