Collège Boréal and the Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon recently reached an agreement that will ensure collaboration between Collège Boréal’s Massage Therapy Program and École secondaire du Sacré-Coeur (Sudbury). This agreement will showcase Collège Boréal’s expertise in the field of health promotion for the benefit of École secondaire du Sacré-Cœur athletes.
Through this agreement, the École secondaire du Sacré-Cœur Griffons will benefit from the services of Collège Boréal students registered in the Massage Therapy Program. As part of sports clinics offered in the premises of École secondaire du Sacré-Cœur, students will receive an assessment of their overall health as well as personalized strategies to improve their well-being and athletic performance. In addition, they will benefit from continuous monitoring based on their specific needs.
“While allowing Sacré-Cœur athletes to excel and stay healthy, this partnership is linked to the school’s Specialist High Skills Major in health and wellness, which prepares students to pursue their studies and training in the various health disciplines,” stated Ms. Lyse-Anne Papineau, director of education at CSC Nouvelon. “This partnership will also enable many of our students to learn about this field of study and one day become Collège Boréal’s massage therapist.”
“Our massage therapy students are passionate about their discipline. With this partnership, Sacré-Coeur students will have the opportunity to gain insight on the importance of physical activity while taking care of themselves, “added Ms. Kim Morris, Dean of Collège Boréal’s School of Health Sciences.
