École Swan River South School and Minitonas School have officially become APPLE Schools.
What is APPLE Schools you ask? It is an innovative school-focused health promotion initiative with a proven track record of improving students’ healthy eating, physical activity, and mental health habits.
Starting September 2018, our division will work with APPLE Schools to engage parents, teachers, and students to be more physically active throughout the day, eat more fruit and vegetables, and take care of their mental wellness. And most importantly, have fun while doing it!
2018 marks the first year that APPLE Schools is expanding its reach past Alberta’s borders and we are excited to start working together to make healthy, positive changes in our school communities.
We just hired the talented health champions who will lead the initiative in each school: Carla Kurtz will be working closely with Minitonas School, and Rob McDonald will take charge in École Swan River South School.
