Sharing Success: Schools help youth make healthier choices

Prairie North Health Region's (PNHR) Population Health Promotion Team is very excited to share the successes of the three communities who received Community Health Promotion Grants. St. Walburg School, Cut Knife High School, and Neilburg Composite School all received funding from the Community Health Promotion Grants to offer positive programming aimed at helping youth make healthier choices and create positive relationships between youth and adults within the community.

St.Walburg School implemented a Positive Ticketing program that aimed to decrease the negative perception of youth in the community, focusing on youth that typically do not get noticed for making good choices. The results of this project were very positive with school staff and students improving their relationships with each other. One student commented that receiving a positive ticket was the best surprise she could have received. St Walburg School has said they plan to run this project again.

Cut Knife High School also implemented a Positive Ticketing campaign to create positive relationships with at risk youth which they hope will lead to a decrease in vandalism that has been occurring in the community. The Cut Knife group had a challenge recruiting people to hand out the positive tickets. They decided to continue the positive ticketing campaign into the fall with hopes of involving more people in this project to encourage youth to make positive life choices and help build community.

When students of Neilburg Composite School identified the need for different options to get active within the community the School applied for a Community Health Promotion Grant to bring in a Street Jazz instructor to run after school classes. The students who attended the activity really enjoyed learning a new fun way of being active and the teachers who supervised the class stated that the self-esteem of the participants has grown. The school would like to continue to offer new activities that are not readily available within Neilburg.

PNHR's Community Health Promotion Grants are made possible through budgeted funds allocated specifically for health promotion activities. For more information on Community Health Promotion Grants or to be notified when the next grants will be available email healthyme@pnrha.ca.
