School Health Initiatives

Promoting a healthy lifestyle is an important practice to follow.   Just a reminder to our families that students at Father Mercredi are not allowed to drink energy drinks while on school property; this in accordance with our district operating policy 138 and Alberta Nutrition Guidelines for Children and Youth.  Energy drinks include Pre-workout drinks that contain high amounts of caffeine.  According to Health Canada neither of these types of drinks should be consumed by individuals under the age of 18.  For more information on the dangers Please click  Energy Drinks  Pre-WorkOut Drinks.
