Student takeaways

Active lifestyle

We offer our students opportunities to learn new activities and skills. We strive to empower our students to stay active while having fun! Activties can include:

  • stand-up paddle-boarding
  • team sports
  • canoe camping
  • meditation/yoga

Life is all about balance. We need to make time for eating, sleeping, school, work, friends, family, physical activity, and downtime. You will have the opportunity to reflect on your current approaches to time management and find ways to improve.

Create healthy habits

You will gain the confidence to take responsibility for your own health. You will learn how to cope with stress, set goals, be motivated, eat well and get better sleep. These lifelong healthy habits will continue to serve you after your time at CÉGEP Heritage College.
