DGH’s HAT (Healthy Active Team)

posted in: Home Page News | 0

On Thursday, January 15th, the DGH HAT team will be travelling to YMCA Camp Pine Crest for a full day of outdoor learning!  We will be participating in a leadership, environmental awareness and team building program with the staff at Camp Pine Crest.  We are excited for this opportunity which has been funded by the Ministry, through a program enhancement initiative in which Dr. George Hall has been awarded.

 

What is the HAT?  We are a leadership group consisting of grade seven and eight students whose goal is to promote and support healthy activity here at Dr. George Hall.  Our members are responsible for organizing and running physical activities and games which encourage the involvement of our younger students.

 

Part of our role also involves creating and announcing advertisements that promote healthy activity and/or nutritious snacking.  Advertising may take place on our morning announcements or be posted to the school website.

 

We are looking forward to an exciting, active, fun-filled day at Camp Pine Crest!

 

Thanks go to Mrs. Hadfield for organizing the HAT this year (and last).  Thanks also to Mr. Eagleson for attending the trip and providing additional supervision.
