Pursue Your Passion - A Cannabis Education Experience

posted Jan 8, 2019, 9:01 AM by Kathrine Kingham   [ updated Jan 8, 2019, 9:05 AM ]

The Government of Canada’s Pursue Your Passion tour is an interactive student based event on Wednesday, January 16 for a selection of our grade 8 students.

It has been identified that regular cannabis use, especially in youth and young adults, can impact their brain functioning, which could make it harder for them to achieve their goals. By encouraging participation in engaging experiences that tap into sport, art, and the virtual world we hope to spark a future passion and educate about the facts of cannabis use.

Our interactive experiences will encourage students to understand the value of; thinking, planning, movement, coordination, decision making, and emotions and how these could be affected through the use of cannabis.

For more information on the tour and its innovative and engaging approach to cannabis awareness go to;  Parent Information can be found at this link.
