Surrey high school hosts health and wellness fair

In what is believed to be a first for the Surrey School District, a high school is throwing the doors of its Health and Wellness Fair open to the community.

The fair at Frank Hurt Secondary (13940 77 Ave.) will enable those attending to learn more about support and resources available from both the district and the community, particularly opportunities for summer activities. For example, there will be mental health and crisis centre services at the fair, plus various sports and arts organizations.

All public schools in Surrey are scheduled to visit the May 22 event, which has been organized by staff and students, and it will open its doors to the wider community from noon until 4:30 p.m.

Groups of students visiting from other schools are asked to attend with an adult.

For more information about the event, contact youth care workers Kam Bassi (bassi_kam@surreyschools.ca) or Candace Loverock (loverock_c@surreyschools.ca).
