school is pleased to announce that we partnered with the IWK Health
Centre to provide the FREE2BE program for our students. The program
is designed to build resiliency among youth and seeks to promote a
healthy lifestyle. Through an interactive, youth-centred approach,
participants strengthen their positive identity and self-esteem, and
develop skills that contribute to resiliency. A total of 15 students
will be asked to volunteer to take part in the program this term.
Since this is the first time it is being offered in this area,
students will be asked to complete a survey prior to participating
in the program, at the end of the program and three months after the
program has ended. The surveys are solely intended to measure the
effectiveness of the program. The surveys are completely
confidential and anonymous (no names), and once completed, will only
be handled by IWK staff. Teachers and school administration will not
have access to the surveys at any time.
Should you have any questions
about your son/daughter participating in the program, and/or about
the FREE2BE program, please contact Derek Leduc, Prevention
and Health Promotion Specialist, IWK Health Centre.
