Okotoks School Hosted Amazing Health and Wellness Conference

Wellness-ConferenceÉcole Okotoks Junior High School organized an amazing full-day Health and Wellness Conference for all students on Friday, March 18th.

The Conference was kicked off with a keynote presentation by Chris Cederstrand — a Dad, coach, volunteer firefighter, member of Team Canada’s sledge hockey team and motivational speaker.

Following Chris’ presentation the students and staff had the opportunity to explore a wide variety of sessions ranging from an Iron Chef-inspired workshop, conquering anxiety, aqua fit and yoga to money management, mindfulness, the power of friendship and stress management to name a few.

Workshop presenters included local business leaders/owners, government, teachers and organizations such as the Canadian Mental Health Association. Most of the workshops took place at the school, but a few did take place off-site (curling, skating, baseball, swimming, etc).

The day concluded with a concert by the band Swift Olliver.
