Festival of Wellness will be held this week at elementary school in Barriere

Success by Six, in partnership with Barriere Elementary School and nursing students from Thompson Rivers University, are in the process  of developing a fair for health screening of children ages two to five  called Festival of Wellness: Jumpstart Your Child’s Future?. They have requested professionals who have an impact on child development to provide their health related services at the fair such as hearing, sight, physical activity, etcetera.

The health fair will take place at Barriere Elementary School following their presentation Ready, Set, Learn, on Mar. 30, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. The health fair will be set up in the gym with  separate tables and booths addressing different aspects of child  development. The goal of the health fair is to increase availability of screening services for families and ultimately increase the wellness of children ages two to five in Barriere.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
