"Be Smart - Be Healthy" School Program
Presented by Cenovus Energy
The 2010-2011 Medicine Hat Tigers "Be Smart - Be Healthy" Program presented by CENOVUS ENERGY in conjunction with Alberta Health Services and The Alberta Sport Development Centre - Southeast (ASDC - Southeast), will make several visits to area schools this season.
Members of the Medicine Hat Tigers will present the program throughout the season. In the program's 20-year history, over 15,000 students have experienced the Tigers BE SMART - BE HEALTHY program.
The program's objectives are to help educate students about the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle, help them understand the important life decisions they will need to make on a daily basis, and to influence them to set goals and be actively involved in extra-curricular activities.
The topics that will be covered during the assembly are:
• The importance of setting goals for yourself (short and long-term)
• Achieving your goals
• Maintaining a healthy lifestyle (includes no tobacco, drugs or alcohol)
• Maintaining proper nutrition and keeping your body fit by exercising
• The importance of balancing school work with extra-curricular activities (work before play)
• Maintaining a positive attitude and good work ethic
