KANANASKIS, AB, Jan. 22, 2016 – Three hundred and seventy participants, with student representation from 25 Alberta and B.C. schools gather on Stoney/Nakoda traditional territory on January 27th to discover how lessons from Indigenous teachings can contribute to a healthy school community.

Students, teachers and health professionals will explore Resilience as a Path to Healthy School Communities under the guidance of Indigenous scholar Dr. Martin Brokenleg. Participants are part of the movement to inspire wellness as a priority in schools, recognizing that healthy students are better learners.

What you’ll see during the workshop:

  • Two hundred and fifty students engaging in Traditional Games outdoors in a mountain setting, making fire bannock and learning from one another.
  • Aboriginal youth speaking about the impact of mentorship in their lived experience.
  • Strengths-based approaches to supporting First Nations health in Alberta school communities.

The workshop is hosted by Ever Active Schools in conjunction with the 7th annual school health conference, Shaping the Future. Ever Active Schools is a government of Alberta cross-ministerial initiative that assists schools in creating and sustaining healthy, active school communities.
