We are out there!

In May, two successful and well-attended Action Schools! BC workshops were held. Educators at Shortreed Community School learned about healthy eating activities and how to incorporate them into their classrooms. Educators in the Surrey school district had the opportunity to attend a healthy eating/physical activity combination workshop held at the Surrey Teachers’ Association Convention on May 5th.

There is more to it!

Resources and workshops are only the tip of the iceberg. Action Schools! BC also offers tailored mentorship for teachers on food literacy and physical literacy, as part of a broader school action plan, which we can support you to develop.

In the past two months, more than fifty mentoring sessions were held directly with teachers to build their confidence and capacities to incorporate healthy living in their classrooms.

Do you want to start a sustainable school garden? Or to offer your students more outdoor play opportunities? Mentoring sessions are available to support you with these goals and other activities identified as part of your action plan. There are a number of resources and supports available to your school and we at DASH are available to walk you through them. Click here to start your action planning and access mentorship.
