Montreal - Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Sinclair Laird Elementary School in Park Extension and Cedarcrest Elementary School in St. Laurent are the first recipients of The Kayla Segal Sports and Wellness Grant. They have each received  $875 that will be applied towards helping their students live more active lifestyles. Venture High School in Ville Émard will also be receiving a special bonus prize. Professionally, Segal is a Financial Security Advisor and she focuses on helping people find optimal life, health and disability insurance solutions. Her passion remains competing in marathons and triathlons across the world. In order to support health and wellness programs in the EMSB, she embarked on an initiative to offer grants to two schools. Various fundraising activities were undertaken in order to raise the money, and she wants to thank everyone who helped in the process.

Sinclair Laird plans to use this money to create a Learn to Skate program. Physical Education and Health teacher Scott Danovitch said that they will purchase a set of ice skates and helmets aimed at Grades 4 and 5 students. Most of our students do not have the opportunity to be exposed to skating, which can be a lifelong lifestyle enhancement activity. They will skate at the Howie Morenz Arena, which is close by and organize weekly instructional lessons during school day hours. The focus will be on 10 to 12 students at a time over a six to eight week period and then repeat the same with other relatively small groups For complete details go to emsb.qc.ca/sportsandwellnessgrant/
