Ever Active Schools celebrated as Friends of Education at the ASBA Fall Awards Ceremony

Posted on September 13

Northland School Division (NSD) celebrated the contributions of Ever Active Schools by presenting them the Alberta School Boards Association (ASBA) Zone One Friends of Education Award. The award recognizes individuals and organizations in the community who have made a special contribution to education in Alberta. Ever Active Schools is a provincial initiative designed to assist school communities in addressing and creating healthy school communities.

“I am honoured to receive this award on behalf of the team at Ever Active Schools,” said Brian Torrance, Director, Ever Active Schools. "It's an honour to work alongside NSD and communities within the district with creating sustainable healthy school communities that enable optimal health and learning. We look forward to partnering with NSD for many years to come with professional learning for staff, outdoor classroom designs, land-based learning and all following a comprehensive school health approach.”

“The Board is very appreciative of the support from Ever Active Schools,” said Maddy Daniels, Board Chair. “EAS has actively worked with us to improve health and wellness in NSD school communities. As a result, students, parents, staff and community members are more aware of healthy eating, physical activity and mental health and how it impacts their learning and lives.”

Ever Active Schools received recognition today (September 12, 2018) at the ASBA Zone One Fall Awards Ceremony with nominees from other school divisions in Alberta. The ceremony was held at the Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre in Peace River.
