North Star Academy Laval has been working on a pilot program with MOOVJAM whose mission is to help young people create healthy living habits in a fun and educational way. MOOVJAM was developed by health professionals in response to the child obesity crisis. It has evolved into a program that focuses on supporting parents and children in a world that is filled with unhealthy choices and confusing messages. NSAL has been chosen as the reference school for this program, a program that will be implemented in many schools across Canada next year.
Wednesday, June 15th, our students will take part in the MOOVJAM press conference which will be held at NSAL. After the press conference, we have organized an afternoon focused on a healthy and active lifestyle.
11:30 pm – Press Conference – Flag Football (NSAL gym attire required) – Karaoke
12:30 pm – BBQ courtesy of the School Committee – Awards
1:15 pm – Filming of YouTube Video – promoting MOOVJAM*
2:45 pm – Regular Departure Time
(*For the production of the YouTube video, students must bring an appropriate change of clothes, of their choice)
We believe this program will offer a valuable and empowering experience for our students. For more information you can visit MOOVJAM at moovjam.com.
