"Youth Building Healthy Communities" Conference
On March 24th, approximately 100 students from 6 different schools congregated at Porcupine Plain Composite School to learn about health, wellness and leadership in their community. Students in grades 7-9 from Arborfield, Carrot River, Choiceland, Hudson Bay, Kelvington, and Porcupine Plain were involved in the youth conference.
Students heard from Canadian Olympic rower and international basketball player Carolyn Ganes, a nurse and a nutritionist from Kelsey Trail Health Region, as well as members of the Lung Association of Canada and Saskatchewan Prevention Institute.
Thank you to Kelsey Trail Health Region and Porcupine Plain Composite School for partnering with LDSCR on this event and for planning such a wonderful youth conference for the students!
