This year, Parkland School Division sent over 20 PSD staff to the Shaping the Future Conference in Kananaskis, Alberta, to learn more about how we can collectively create healthy school communities. Some of the highlights were captured by health champions from Woodhaven, Graminia, and Forest Green Schools. In addition, here’s a link to many of the other presentations in case you weren’t able to join us.
Some presenters, including Leanne Schram-White of Duffield and Ashley Fox from Be Fit for Life, stressed the importance of engaging your students in this work. Cardston Elementary Grade 5 teacher, Mrs. Schrow, encourages her students to think about how and why health is important to various aspects of their lives.
