École des Petits-Ponts is one of some fifty schools nominated in the country as BOKS school for the year 2019-2020.

The director of the École des Petits-Ponts gave a few examples of initiatives that were organized during the 2019-2020 school year, which were worth the nomination at the establishment.

These are small gestures that show that we are trying as much as possible to create a favorable environment to encourage young people to move and be well in their bodies, "he added, stressing the work and commitment of the workers. who contributed to the realization of the different projects.

The general management of the Hauts-Bois-de-l’Outaouais School Service Center also wished to thank the École des Petits-Ponts for its participation in the BOKS program. “Managing the program requires sustained communication and commitment for those who go the extra mile to add daily physical activity to a school day - which is not always easy,” said a press release. for this purpose.

Qualities that help BOKS coordinators accomplish their mission and get kids moving even more across Canada. "
