St. James Catholic High School
Open to ALL schools

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11
The Conference will focus on how to build quality, sustainable intramural programs. We offer a full day of hands on practical activities.
The focus of the morning session will be a 1.5 hour physical activity and game session. Intramural leaders - both students and teachers - will take participants to local schools and play intramural-style games.
All participants should be dressed in active clothing and have running shoes. You will sweat! Students and Staff should also bring their lunch.
The afternoon session will focus on planning. Schools will work together and with other schools to plan their own intramural program. The objective is to make sure that every school leaves the conference with a concrete plan of what they need to do to build and/or improve their school intramural program.
- a Raise the Bar Leadership t-shirt to every participant
- resources and intramural packages for every teacher
- snacks and beverages for the morning and afternoon sessions
- door prizes
- a great experience for everyone!
Best-selling author of the acclaimed self-help book, “Live Life from the Heart: 52 Weeks to a Life of Passion and Purpose” and founder of Adversus Consulting Group, Mark Black is a Heart and Double-Lung Transplant Recipient, 4-Time Marathon Runner, and much sought after speaker, trainer and success-coach.
Mark learned about success in life by facing death. Born with a congenital heart defect, Mark battled heart disease for twenty-three years before he faced the biggest obstacle of his life. In May 2001, at twenty-three years old, Mark saw his doctor and was given news no one wants to hear, his heart was failing fast. He had less than two years to live.
After waiting on the transplant list for 10 months and near death, Mark received a life-saving heart and double-lung transplant. Since that day, Mark has beaten all the odds and uses his new gift of life to inspire people to “live life with passion and purpose”. Mark’s presentations have inspired more than 65,000 people across North America and his best-selling book has impacted the lives of countless others.
Mark is passionate about his work, but he’s even more passionate about his family. He lives in Moncton, NB, Canada with his wife Marise and their two children Emma and Matteo.
