Experiential learning stations at Health Fair

Healthy Schools Coordinator Laura Paiement, along with several public health nurses and a dental hygienist, recently held health fairs at Sorrento, South Broadview and Ranchero elementary schools.

The health fairs focused on learning how to be healthy through eight experiential learning stations, including one popular and visually effective station ran by public health nurse Maryanne Domarchuk, called Making Poo (seen above).

The other stations included brain injury prevention, dental health, tobacco/vaping reduction, heart health, sip smart, germs and hand washing, 5-2-1-0 (youth nutrition and fitness) and Don’t Walk in Hall (movement based strategies to regulate).

Paiement comments they hope to continue providing this resource to two to three schools per year.
