WHAT IS HASS?
Each school is welcome to bring a team. Team numbers and capacity may change depending on location; please be mindful of capacity as you are registering.
By registering a team to attend HASS, your school is eligible to invoice Ever Active Schools for the cost of one substitute teacher. Many schools and school jurisdictions have different processes for this. Please check with your school administration or central offices to confirm the process.
The invoice should indicate:
- The HASS event attended
- Date attended
- Name of the teacher for whom the substitute was used
- Who the invoice is payable to
Invoice must be received within 3 months of the HASS date to be paid.
Support can be claimed for the following distances:
- 50-74km round trip - $25.00 reimbursement
- 75-99km round trip - $35.00 reimbursement
- 100-149km round trip - $75.00 reimbursement
- 150+km round trip - $100 reimbursement
Please complete the form and return it to Ever Active Schools. The maximum amount covered is 150+ km round trip.
Claim forms must be received within 3 months of the HASS date to be paid.
HASS Planning Support
Healthy Active School Symposia (HASS) events utilize a Comprehensive School Health approach to support healthy school communities through student leadership. Get a head start on HASS and complete the Healthy School Planner to assess your school health environment. The assessment should be done with a diverse group of stakeholders including student leaders. The results will support students in determining priorities for learning when attending the HASS.
If your school team wants to work on some planning before HASS, we recommend the Joint Consortium for School Health Healthy School Planner. It is an evidence-informed assessment tool that your school could use to assess the school health environment. Completing this tool ahead of time will support completion of the conversation starter and the action plan at your HASS event.
21st Century Competency Connections
Streamlined Competencies Through the Lens of a HASS Event
This poster is designed to support awareness and understanding of the competencies identified in the Ministerial Order on Student Learning. It connects the ways that these competencies come to life through the lens of the Healthy Active Schools Symposia events.
Streamlined Competencies through Student Voice & Wellness
These competency cards were created using student voice - the language that resonated to the students for each competency; and the pictures on each card were also created by students. On the back of the cards, we used the CSH framework, the Wellness Framework, and Dr. Patrick's Carneys book Well Aware to connect the competencies to wellness and the whole child perspective. These cards, created in partnership with ERLC, were created for teachers to use when planning units and lessons for their students.
