On Thursday May 4, 2023, the annual HPEC Conference returned to its full “in-person” glory at Lethbridge College. Health and physical education teachers from around the province were able to gather together for an amazing PD experience in Alberta’s beautiful south end of the province. Hats go off to Jonathan Dick and his small but mighty conference team for organizing an outstanding HPEC Conference 2023. The conference kicked off with pre-conference sessions highlighting the new Alberta Physical Education and Wellness Curriculum and Sports Medicine Taping and Strapping sessions. HPEC Presidents from past years were honoured at the HPEC Past President’s Reception. During the official opening ceremony the keynote speaker, Laval St. Germain, shared his incredible stories of adventure. The conference opening also recognized teachers who have demonstrated outstanding contributions in the field of health and physical education in the province of Alberta.
