Pipestone Flyer

The Black Gold Regional School (BGRS) division has received an award from the Alberta School Employee Benefit Plan (ASEBP) for participation in their newest pilot project.

New Sarepta Elementary School Principal, Cheryl Hasfo, who is involved with Black Gold Healthy Schools (BGHS) joins BGRS Trustees and Superintendent Norman Yanitski to show their appreciation for receiving an award for their participation in the Diabetes Screening Clinic 2013 pilot program.

Hasfo says that BGHS has worked with ASEBP previously with a health clinic that the school division was involved in, after that ASEBP approached BGHS to be a part of the new pilot project.

New Sarepta Elementary School and École Bellevue School in Beaumont were two of the school that participated in the project in November 2013. Hasfo says that École Coloniale Estates School, in Beaumont, has also volunteered however they will not be running the program until the following school year.

“It’s just a win-win because our staff had really good feedback on both the health clinic and the diabetes screening just in terms of people being aware of their health and health risks and taking care of themselves”, says Hasfo.

Now that ASEBP has tested the program with BGRS, Hasfo says that they will be opening the program up to other school districts in the province.
