School Nutrition Pilot Program
Heinsburg Community School, along with other elementary schools in St. Paul Education, is participating in a school nutrition pilot program launched by the Government of Alberta. The program is aimed at helping students prepare for a healthy future.
Elementary students at HCS have been taste testing healthy foods from each of the food groups. These well-liked healthy options have begun to be incorporated into our snack and meal program. Access to healthy, nutritious foods help our students to grow and learn and guides them to making healthy choices in the future.
The pilot is part of the Government of Alberta's "Future Ready" initiative that coordinates training from kindergarten to work so all Albertans have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in a changing economy.
