Ever Active Schools (EAS) is a provincial initiative designed to assist school communities in addressing and creating healthy school communities. EAS contributes to the healthy development of children and youth by fostering social and physical environments that support improving the health and learning outcomes of students in Alberta.
Schools engaged with EAS are actively supported to assess wellness in their school community and participate through a comprehensive school health approach that addresses health and education goals and improving the social outcomes of children and youth in Alberta.
EAS spearheads meaningful collaboration between the health, education, recreation and active living sectors. Through collaborative partnerships, projects based work, knowledge exchange and competency based learning opportunities, EAS works to build and support healthy Albertans.
Ever Active Schools is a special project of the Health and Physical Education Council of the Alberta Teachers Association. Ever Active Schools is grateful for the ongoing Government of Alberta support and funding from Alberta Health, Alberta Education and Culture and Tourism.
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.
