Healthy Active School Symposium 2017

Posted in: Active Living, Blogs

This year’s Healthy Active School Symposium (HASS) will be held on Thursday, October 5th at the Esplanade in Medicine Hat.

The Healthy Active School Symposia (HASS) are events designed to provide Alberta school communities with the knowledge, skills and resources to enhance student wellness.  HASS are a catalyst for sustained change within the participating school communities.  The events focus on inspiring student leadership by developing the competencies needed to become engaged thinkers and ethical citizens with an entrepreneurial spirit, through a Comprehensive School Health approach. HASS empowers students to be active agents of change in building a school community that enhances their learning and fosters their personal growth and well-being.

This year’s theme focuses on finding the leader within through arts, creative expression and a growth mindset. Student leaders in grade 4-12 are eligible to attend. Medicine Hat has a fun day planned including an Amazing Race themed activity.

We invite YOU to register your school team right away by visiting: https://everactive.org/register-for-hass/

We look forward to seeing you on October 5th!
